Imagine Nation reviews
I found Imagination to be my least favorite place to take our grandson. Not alot of interactive things and at 3 1/2 he found it very boring and lost interest fast. more »
This is a great hands-on experience for kids. Great for a rainy afternoon. Have been to the facility on numerous occasions. more »
Went today for the first time and was impressed. So many things for the kids to do ages 2 to 8. Also many staff were available and do friendly. Impressed that they kept the place so clean, and noticed them sanitizing all of the toys the children play with. Nice open space, and you can literally send hours here (we spent 4!) We will definitely be back.
Excellent place for bring your kiddos, we enjoyed a lot and I never seen my kiddos so happy.
