“Nice way to spend a couple of hours.”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Stopped here on a cloudy day to kill some time before eating our next meal. This place has a nice variety of activities for children and time went by fairly quickly. The activities our 4 yr old enjoyed most were the Pet Vet animal hospital, grocery store, and the newsroom simulator. The only negative for me is that everyone between 1 and 55 is charged the same amount ($10). There is a discount for senior citizens.

“Good for a rainy day”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Kids 8 and under will have a great time here. A good place to bring little visitors on a rainy day. For locals, consider buying a membership. When we went there was a Groupon available.

“fun in the dark”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

My six-year old grandson begged for me to crawl into a sensory deprivation tunnel which turned out to be more fun than I anticipated. Floor is padded for grown ups.

“Kids will love this place”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Although it was packed due to a rainy day this place was a blast for the kids. It features so much hands on fun and they have it figured out on how to keep kids entertained. This was our second trip, the first being two years ago and they have made several improvements and the kids can't wait to go back again.

“Great for the under 5's”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were looking for places to take our children on a wet day and for this in a guide book. With hindsight our children are too old but the girl at the desk said they would be fine. They enjoyed the craft room and the dark tunnel but the rest really was for younger children. We stayed a couple of hours. Entry fee not too much, no cafe just a coffee dispenser in the foyer.
