The free area is ok to spend a couple of hours. It's ok for kids. But the shows are not worth the price.

We went to a laser show but also spent an hour exploring the public areas and gift shop afterwards. Super fun for adults and my kids ages 9 & 11 loved it too.

Good place for kids but a little run down...but free! If we had more time, we would have purchased theater seats for the show.
