5 year old son had a lot of fun here. This is really a nice place for kids aged 2-6. After 6 years old it may be a tad too kiddie for them to enjoy.

Even though my daughter is only 15 months, she still had a lot of fun. She was curious about everything she saw.

Ideal for children 4 to 10. They will keep themselves busy exploring for several hours. Also a good place for birthday parties.
