It was fun but it is geared more to younger kids then my own 9 year old but we still had some fun. I just wish they would add a little more older kid friendly things.

This is a great place to take infants/toddlers and kids up to about age 6. Very interactive. Water tables, paint station, grocery store, veterinary hospital, railroad, and more. Great for a rainy day or a hot summer day.
