Kids could stay here and explore all day! There is so much to do and so much to see. Kids can use their most imaginative creativity! Just let them go! (it's fun for the parent's too!)

So many interactive activities to engage in and informative gadgets to explore. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and eager to show-and-tell guests about the place, the activities and toys. The place is very clean and organized. We’d definitely keep going back.
