Been here many times with hubby and the kiddos 7.11 and 17. We always go during the winter and spend the entire day at the mall and half of the time, if not more in nick univ . My best tip is to get there early when it opens for lil wait in lines and get a wrist band, it's so worth it! They have rides for all ages. We got a locker for $8 located to the left under the carousel to keep our jackets in all day, beat lugging them around all day!
