Overview

Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge.

Simply Amazing. This place could bring out the kid in Ebenezer Scrooge. Possibly the coolest attraction I've ever been to. Too much fun

Would not recommend for young kids. Too chaotic with too many hidden spots! Many other good choices in the city. Avoid this one.

This place is a twisty maze of exploration and fun. There is a cool place in the back of the top floor where you can make crafts, etc.
