We had a wonderful experience celebrating our daughter's 4th birthday party here in May. The staff was great to work with on planning -- respected our budget and ideas, didn't push to sell us anything we didn't need, and helpful and available whenever we called. And the party staff (Tony, Porsche, and Selena) were all the best we've seen at... More

We hosted my daughters 2nd birthday party at Imagine That and the kids had a great time. Tony was amazing with the kids and we would recommend parents to take their kiddies but only of you have a lot of time as there is so much for the little ones to do.

Clean up your eating options, get with the 21st century or allow people to bring their own food. Its inexcusable to put that kind of food options on parents who care for their kids nutrition.

Thank you for your review! Our cafe has many food options which do includes pizza, grilled cheese and chicken nuggets but also fresh fruit, fruit bowls, salads, yogurt, granola bars, tuna sandwiches and other assorted items. Due to the various allergies of both children and adults we have to restrict the food brought into the museum. Though all of our... More

Lots of hands-on activities for kids – art projects, music, blocks, ….. There is even an opportunity to dance on a wood floor with a ballerina or tap dancing shoes. There is also a fire engine, an airplane, etc… So no lack of keeping your kids busy for a couple of hours. However the place just is a little run... More

We had my daughters 2nd Birthday here and it was a blast. Specially since we had kids from all ages come. The place will keep kids entertained for hours. Karisa was our host... she did a awesome job. Even if you don't have a b-day, it is the perfect place to take kids for activities.

Karisa was super with helping coordinate everything, and the day of the party, our hostesses Selena and Porsche was amazing.
