Took my family because it was raining. The center is great for all ages. I enjoyed it as much as my children.
Next time we will just pay for general admission tickets with a AAA discount. I may add the Dino Quest ticket for the kids if they want, but not for me or my wife. Fun enough to just walk with your kid while they do the searching. The Dino Quest is outside so if it's raining, your kids will get wet. My kids did the Dino Quest in the rain and loved it.
My first impression of the ginger bread house exhibition was they don't belong in a science center, but the kids liked every bit of it, so I was cool with it. I would skip the 4D turtle movie as it's a Green Peace type propaganda piece that somehow made off the cutting room floor. The 3D effects are very cool though. Totally NOT worth the extra 3 bucks!
My 2 year old got bored after about 4 hours so we had to leave, the 9 and 12 year olds could have stayed all day, just leave the Droid or iPhone in the car.
My favorite display was the Tornado. My 2 year old liked the Vortex, the older ones like the Dino Quest the most.
