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.

Went here with a group for work, there was a ton of options and I saw all types of people having a blast. I think there is a good mix for both kids and teens. Food was very good and drinks for the adults!!
