If you have any sort of back injury or pain do not go on the slide, it is rough and fast. Other than that say 'have fun, kids!' and walk down and meet them at the bottom. The cafe there is great, their chocolate log is decorated to look like an actual log! Realistic, fun, and yummy. Good other food, friendly service. Ample parking, lovely tall trees, lovely ferns, very interesting flora and fungi, many kinds of mosses and fungi. You won't need a hat but will probably need a jacket. I didn't see the crayfish but the photos of it look very interesting. How cool to go play at a swamp. It used to be called "Dismal swamp" and I preferred that name, it was awesome, but some marketing person must have thought that wasn't saleable enough. You'd think kids would like to go play in a swamp given they love Shrek and all! Haha. There are walk ways about the swamp, and it's quite lovely and a nice, peaceful place.
