We went with kids age 9 and 11, and got there an hour before closing... we needed more time. If you want to try the high-wire bicycle you can't wear flip flops - so bring closed toe-shoes. My daughter was thrilled to add a button to her collection for having ridden it. My son didn't get to ride it because... More

There are so many things to do in Toledo. I really enjoyed this venue. The bike on the tightrope was my favorite. Several adult-friendly parts and a nice café downstairs. This was worth a repeat trip, especially since my daughter was a little under the weather.

This is the place for Kids or if you are a big kid at heart. It is a place where kids learn all kinds of things. From since to how things work to how things are made. It is very interesting.

Imagination Station in Toledo sits downtown on the riverfront. This offers some interesting views, but also parking difficulty. If you are accustomed to urban parking this is not a big deal. Inside the IS there are many attractions and interactive exhibits for all ages, but I feel it is best suited for tots through grade school-age children. My kids (when... More

Took my nieces and nephew there ages ranging from 5 years old to 13 years old and they all had a blast! They enjoyed every single minute of it and so did us grown ups! We figured we would need maybe 2 hours to spend there and that'd be it but we were there for more like 4 hours and... More

We all had a blast. So much for everyone to do. The hands on exhibits were just awesome. They had a water play area for toddlers where they could experiment with wind and water (sail boats) and flow of water using plastic pieces that could divert water & allow rubber duckies to flow or stop. They had a simulation ride... More

this is such an interesting place for adults as well as kids. We take our out of town guest there when they visit and they can spend the whole day there. They love it.

Imagination Station isn't just for kids. Interactive stations and exhibits let you play right along with the kids as you all learn about science, the environment, aerodynamics, music, building things and lots more! Kids love it and admission is reasonable. Take your lunch and enjoy by the river or buy it in the cafeteria.

This place is nothing short of amazing! It is all hands on and great for young children to adults! Heck, I'd go back without the kids just to play around for me!!! There is so much to do and try. The only thing I can suggest would be for the gift shop. It seriously needs some tshirts for toddlers-adults! I... More
