There were 6 of us (4 adults & 2 kids). The kids had never been here before so it was neat to experience it with them. This is a wonderful place for every one of all ages.

Nice, but not something I would need to repeat. Best for small groups. Also need to move from room to room in semi darkness. Difficult for folks with walkers. Enjoyed the gift shop.
