I found Imagination to be my least favorite place to take our grandson. Not alot of interactive things and at 3 1/2 he found it very boring and lost interest fast.

The kids loved it and had a great time. I think they charge adults too much, we had 4 adults (parents and grandparents) so was expensive.

As long as your kids are 2nd grade and under they'll enjoy themselves, but 10 and up mine didn't rave... Didn't stay long either.

Its a good place to go but you can get easily over whelmed at the amount of kids that will show up to a specific event. Try and go on off days if you want quality time together.

Thank you for your review! We are usually pretty busy during the summer due to a higher volume of field trips. If you'd like to come during a quieter time, we recommend trying another visit in late September or during the month of October.
