We set out from Corolla on a rainy day to get to the Aquarium, but when it took us an hour to just get to Kitty Hawk, due to traffic, we ended up seeing Children at Play along the road and decided to check it out. I have 4 kids, ages 9,7,5,2.5 and we were with friends who had a... More

We took our 19 month old here. She had a great time. It's not huge or super involved but a good way to kill a few hours. We will be back!

We have a 9 month old and are vacationing in the Outer Banks. It was in the upper 90s today so the beach during daytime hours was not possible. We had kind of run out of things to do when we discovered this place and it ended up saving our butts. It's a little pricey because you have to pay... More

This is listed as a museum but is more of a pay-for-play area for children. It is spacious and provides many different toys and objects to keep a child occupied for an hour or more. A parent must accompany the child; it isn't a baby-sitting service. Both parent and child must pay the admission fee; explained by capacity is determined... More

It's the biggest waste of money and time. I don't need to pay for my kids to to play with things I have in my own home.

Good for toddlers I suppose but the "museum" aspect of it was a huge let down. And at $13 a kid, we stayed for 5 min as my 6yr old was bored and disappointed. For that about of $ and it's not a donation to anything, I asked for a refund and walked outside to the playground across the parking... More

I had friends in town and they were heading here to entertain their 2 1/2 year old. I was under the impression that it was a museum. Do not be fooled, it slightly resembles a museum, however it is more like a play place. The entry fees are reasonable, except the adults have to pay!!! There is NOTHING here for... More

There are a lot of activities and we found the staff to be very good with our 3 and 7 year old grandsons. We went on a day that they had a bit too much sun the day before and it wasn't overly crowded. Not sure it would be a good place on a rainy day. If you're looking for... More

Always something new..... helpful staff, lots for little ones under the age of 6..... by then, probably not interested...... although they have added a Wi area for age 5 and up. We have a grandparent membership so they can go anytime once we pay the yearly fee. A good bargain with 5 grandchildren under the age of 7!

I took my grand daughter there on a rainy day to celebrate the end of school. She had a blast and would have stayed all day if she could. They have a boat you can fish from but it was a bit unsafe, so you'll need to watch them on that feature.
