It is amazing. If you have an Oak Dale child (a child that goes to Oak Dale) That child gives the whole family your taking to the discovery center a free membership. All you have to do is bring an Oak Dale child and they will tell them their name. What school they go to and what grade their in. And the family is in! And this place has very friendly atmosphere and kids love to play here. Wow!
Could be a really great place. We brought our 8 year old twin nephews here Saturday and over half of the exhibits were broken or did not work properly. For a $46 entry fee I was very disappointed. Nice clean place, but the exhibits need a lot of attention.
