Huge, lots of activities for kids, they just loved it. I sat down and read a book so it was very relaxing for me. I'd take them again and they WANT to go.

I bring the youngsters here when they are visiting. I can relax knowing they are having a good time and enjoy coffee, good coffee and read the paper. Kids seem to keep busy and times \that I have been there the kids are well supervised

This is an indoor play place for children with adult supervision. First off, there are no video games! And NO arcade games. I like that! Good variety of things to do, and mostly thought inspiring. Climbing, sliding, jumping, running, riding toys for toddlers and preschool,...More

Decided to give it a try, and it was really nice! Big place, lots of things for kids to do, staff (Bex) was really nice. It will definitely be a toss up next time between here and smart moves - we like them equally.

Winter for sure is a good time to come visit. We are working on a tap card system for the games which should resolve many of the common game issues such as stuck tokens and tickets. Regards, Sarah

We've been in the past and wouldn't go again but after viewing new management we decided to give it another chance and we sure are glad we did!! The place is noticeably cleaner and the staff is amazing great way to spend the day.
