“Cool off and let's the kids play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

I had not been here in years, but my kids had a great time. We arrived about 2pm and it was busy, but as the day wore on it got quiter. The kids had a great time when everyone started leaving around 4pm. The food was reasonably priced, and thank goodness they no longer charge for adults, I found that absurd. My kids were ages 11 and 8, and the older ones loved it as much as the younger ones.

“Great for kids but BUSY!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

My kids absolutely love this place. One bad thing is that it is always so busy you tend to lose your kid because there are so many people and kids are constantly running into each other and crawling over each other. It's a great place for the kids to burn energy though and get out of the heat. We definitely will return.

“Very fun for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

There so many fun things to climb on slide down and climb through!
The kids never seem to get tired of this and it is a great way to get some exercise and release some energy
It is a great value for the money

“Great for kids 9 and under”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

This has tons of fun things for kids, younger kids will need you to run around with them but kids 6 and up will probably just wander around aimlessly for as long as you will let them. The food is decent (for a kid play place- pizza/corn dogs). Parents have to pay an entrance fee, which I don't understand, but the kids will have fun. Make sure to bring socks!

“Kids LOVE it...OK for parents”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This place is an absolute must for kids. Especially from ages 3-8 or so..... I have been there before with 2 year olds.. and they are too small to navigate most things here.
This is basically a GINORMOUS indoor kids play structure with tunnels, slides, etc...
I have lost my kids for 20 mins in here before... it is hard to keep track of them. There is also a cafeteria that usually has sports on the TV. If they sold beer here, I would buy a season pass.
There is also a very small video arcade/skiball area here, HOWEVER usually more than half of the games are broken.
Kids are locked in here and can not leave the place without their parents with matching wristbands, so when you don't see your kids for 30 mins... don't worry! I have also had one of my kids bday parties here. They make it very easy to just show up and enjoy.
I know that it is currently closed now (April 2014) for renovations... not sure how long.
Weekends get SUPER packed in here... almost to packed.
I highly recommend this place.
