“Great date night for those with a competitive spirit!”
Reviewed November 3, 2010

My husband and I enjoy competing and I also was overdue with my second child so I was trying to induce labor! There was lots of opportunity for competition, the lines were short or no lines at all and so there was not a lot of standing around. We had a good time! Would be a great family event as well.

“College Basketball Experience - Fun for all”
Reviewed August 29, 2009

A must see if you're in the area simply because there is no other place like this. Very interactive basketball experience for any level of skill. Our family all enjoyed participating in the basketball interactive activities despite having limited skill and knowledge about basketball. Audio and instructions on each activity guide you through everything. Our elementary aged kids had a blast. The youngest one's jaw literally dropped when he walked into the place. If they were teenagers I doubt we would have been able to leave. Fun for all. Give it a try.

“Great Place for Teens!”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

This is a really fun place to take teenagers (or all ages!). There are lots of fun, hands-on basketball "exhibits" - shoot free throws, 3 pointers, etc. The kids will have fun looking through the exhibits but they will have the most fun playing ball!

“More than a museum”
Reviewed August 17, 2008

This "museum" will make you sweat! The entire second floor gives a "hands-on" approach to college basketball. There is a full court that you can play on, a "3 on 3" area to strike up a game, "competition" areas for 3 point shot, free throws, and dunks, and even an ESPN desk where you can practice your announcing skills. I have 2 teenage sons that LOVE basketball, and I didn't think that I would ever get them out of here!! A MUST for the basketball enthusiast!
