“Great rain or shine day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

SO much to do here, from role playing, to painting. There were kids from 2-12 having a wonderful time. Local businesses have supplied ares of imagination, and the kids run, climb, play, meet other kids. It's a wonderful place, rainy day or shine.

“Fun time for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The kids love this place, they could stay all day. Take a book, it's tiring sitting around while they play day, but worth it. It's a fun, educational experience.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This place is nirvana for the 6-and-under set. Our two boys, ages 2 and 4, loved their time here, and have been asking to go back ever since. It's nice that you are allowed to leave and re-enter as much as you like in one day, which allows you to leave for a meal or nap, and then return refreshed for more fun. Great for exercising little imaginations, with lots of opportunity for role play. If the $8.50/person admission is too expensive, visit in the last hour before closing, when admission is essentially "pay what you can", or by donation.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Went to a birthday party here recently. The kids are so busy with all of the stations they have that you almost don't notice how much time has passed. I used to go here a lot when I was a kid too and have nothing but fond memories. Definitely a good family/kids day.
