My 7 year old loves this place and always has. However, it needs a good scrub down. The amount of dust on the carpeted walls of the slide/ball pit area is disgusting. Each of the areas has great activities. My daughter especially loves the pizzeria/grocery/house area. The water room leaks into the construction room so beware of wet carpet!!

My one year old had a great time here. He loved playing in the infant/toddler room. His favorite was the water room! There is so much for the little ones to do as well as children to about age 8. Great way to spend time as a family!

Took my nephews here 9 and 11. Both had so much fun - so much to do and a lot of seating for parents to watch their children. Lots of activities and when the kids get hungry, there is food too. Plenty of seating --- lots of fun

We've been about 6 times and have a blast, everytime! We usually meet friends to have a play date and end up there all day! Each room has a different activity. They also have a cooking class for kids ;) They have a place to eat and you can also book birthday parties.

My daughter-in-law and I brought my granddaughter to this location for their Costume Party and was told they were sold out and tickets had to be bought on line prior to arriving. I informed Becca, the supervisor that the website did not say space was limited or that online purchases was the only option to buy tickets. She told me... More

I took my 5 year old grand daughter there and she had a great time-each room has a different theme where they can build something or play store or play make believe-we went to the story telling where the child is involved in the story-my grand daughter attended the session where they made trail mix-the concession stand has a good...

We took my seven year old granddaughter for the afternoon. Lots to do from face painting to water play to bike riding to a giant sand box and the list goes on. Their food is really good too. A really cool, fun place for kids.

This is the place to take your children if you want to just have fun, or if you want to have a party. My grand Daughter had her birthday party there and it was great. something I am sure she will remember.

The "Illiana" area is rather thin on things to do for small children during winter, but Bellaboo's is a bright spot. Our 1 and 3 year old girls had 2 1/2 hours of fun, various activities, a couple guided things from Bellaboo's staff, and the simple joy of running around with other kids. The prices are very reasonable. The water... More

I booked and paid for my son's first birthday party for November 1st, and Bellaboos contacted me two hours before the party was to take place November 1st and cancelled his party. They completely ruined his first birthday. I had to relocate at the last minute, and was unable to get in contact with everyone that was to attend his... More
