This was a surprisingly fun experience for someone with 3 teenage daughters! We spent about 90 minutes here. The kids really had fun and so much hands on stuff for them. Highly recommended.

This was our first time visiting after allllll the years we have explored Wisconsin Dells. DEFINITELY will go back. I am not sure who was more excited, my son, or myself!! So many cool and interesting things to see and explore.
