  • I really liked how fun the Discovery Center was. I loved their mini weis and the big bubble you could make around yourself. I 10/10 recommend it for kids between the ages of 2-12. -Tannor Walker

  • We took our three year old son. He loved it so much and already asked to go back. It has so many different rooms to play in, all different themes. Really educational and fun. I wish the playground...

  • This looks like a really nice place. We visited in Winter so all the fun outside stuff was covered in snow unfortunately. Inside was fairly well maintained but once it stated getting busy there just isn't enough room inside.
  • This place continues to be top notch even after all these years. Great for kids to explore, learn, and run their crazies out. If you've never been before, think of a giant place with all kinds of pretend play. From a mini grocery store, to a bank, to a restaurant, an old fire engine (that my grandfather used to drive), and countless other activities. There are even quiet areas tucked away for children who need sensory breaks. During holidays they like to decorate accordingly and do a great job. Prices are very reasonable and well worth it (they even have grandparent memberships so they can take their grandchildren). While there (if the weather is decent), check out the storybook garden. It's a free play area with gardens, books to read, and fun stuff for kids to explore. There is even a pavilion area if you wanted to bring a lunch or snack. If you have never been here, go! Don't just think about it, GO! You won't be disappointed
