Our girls never like anything, but we're happy here. They loved the aerial bike and the boyo especially. The Mythbuster exhibit was the highlight. Great for all!

Great place to learn about the power of wind, water, gravity, and optical illusions. They had a mythbusters event going on when we arrived which was great. It had lots of the props and equipment used in the shows, as well as hand on activities and experiments. Great place for the kids.

I enjoyed every bit of this place. From the moment you enter your eyes will be amazed. The decor is absolutely beautiful and the customer service was phenomenal. This place has everything about science and the fascination and creativity that is added to it makes it all so cool and amazing. Definitely recommend the simulator
