Call ahead to ask if the indoor activities are all available. A lot of things were not working or available the day we went.

We've taken many trips to the Big Thrill Factory and had a great time! It's very clean, full of activity, and the staff is very friendly. We've had multiple parties in Minnetonka and the planners have been very helpful and accommodating.
