Good for kids of all ages. Kept my niece busy and entertained for several hours. They could add more things to do though, the upstairs is pretty bare and not a lot to do up there. But she loved it.

If you are in Murfreesboro and want a place to spend a few quality hours with... More

So far we've taken our kids from 1 year to 5 years and they've all had a great time. My one complaint. Who thought to put the water table RIGHT next to the concrete stairs? That is just an accident waiting to happen. We love tot town. Its great for the 1-3 crowd. If you have an older child to... More

Nice place for the kids and whole family. Great for an indoor outgoing. You could finish the whole thing in a couple of hours. Longer if kids get into playing.

We went to a birthday here and it was our first time ever going. There is plenty of things for the kiddos to do. My daughter had a blast. Staff was also friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back.

We took the children for an end of summer trip before school started. Interesting and very reasonably priced for a group.
