I love this place. I didn't renew my membership because I don't go enough to pay for it. Annual membership is around $100 but w lol worth it if you go more than a couple of times. I think the single visit prices are high but there is a lot to do there. Very interactive for all ages. If you... More

Amazement Square has multiple rooms and activities for a broad range of ages. My kids love going! There is painting, music, a big water boat, etc. In the middle of the building from bottom to top floor is a giant obstacle course with slides and simple obstacles.

My son had his birthday party at Amazement Square after hours. Fran went above and beyond and was very accommodating for our party. It was wonderful having an attendant and she was so helpful. The birthday room is spacious and laid out well. Of course the children's play areas are wonderful. I would highly recommend for birthday parties for all... More

Had a birthday party here and the staff was fabulous. The new bird exhibit is great. Everyone that goes with us absolutely loves it- adults and kids. Lots of hands on exhibits. My teens still enjoy going once a year to "play." They recently redid the farm area and it is a bit cleaner but not as much to actually... More

My children and I have visited amazement square several times over the past 5 years and they always enjoyed themselves. It's a great rainy day activity and we may still resort to it in dire times in the future. But, it hasn't changed too much over the years, enough to make it worth the cost very often. The attractions are... More
