This was a great place to bring the kids to have some indoor fun. This place is ideal for children eight months to ten years old.

There are things to see and do for all ages. It is by no means just for kids (although I am not sure an adult can go there without a child). In our case, even our 16 month old was kept fascinated. The Rain Forest was very interesting.

This place is awesome if you are a kid. If you are a parent you will get bored easily as they do not even have a small coffee shop for you to spend time as the kids play.

Very much worth the money and just a special place. Very different. Interactive activities such as a restaurant, grocery store, arts and crafts, water games....Season passes are very affordable as well.

This place is awesome! It's right downtown in huntersville and has a parking garage attached along with an easily accessible parking lot, both of which are free. I've never had a problem with parking. The price is $8 per person and a membership is $100 for a family for a year. It has two stories of completely hands on exhibits for kids to explore. There's a fire truck, ambulance, farm, grocery store, restaurant, doctors office, water center, brick factory, shipwreck, and tons of other great things they can do. Each station looks like an authentic mini version of the real thing, has corresponding costumes and props that go along for a realistic play experience. My kids adore this place, never want to leave and beg to go back! Additional tips: if you bring a snack they have a snack area where you can take a break and eat and I've seen a few moms take their kids outside for a quick picnic. I feel like several of the precautions they've taken make it feel like a safe place for kids, but I still never let them out of my sight, just to be safe. Adults aren't allowed in without a child, and there's only one exit but it can get crazy with kids running all over the place from site to site, so I always make mine stay together where I can see them. Feels safe though and I love that the whole place smells faintly of chlorine! Doesn't feel excessively germy like some kid attractions, they do a good job keeping things clean. Our favorite place to go in huntersville!
