The kids get caught up in all the activities and it's easy to over do it. Be sure to take plenty of water and snacks. If you want to do everything take your time and make sure to have fun!

We went through it pretty fast but could've spent more time. Great activities to let the kids burn off steam. We are at the cafe it was nice but a bit pricey.

It is 100% dependent on your child. As a teacher I have 4th grade students who could spend an entire day there, 100% engaged the entire time. These students tend to be filled with wonder and imagination and love to tinker. I... More
