  • We took our 3 grandchildren ages from 6 to 10. There was something for them all to do. It was very well maintained and interesting to all of us! What a gem to have here in our community.  more »

  • My children love this place. I have been bringing them here since they opened. I only have a few suggestions. I feel like the employees should be more involved with the people that are there. Also I noticed allot of areas were broken or missing things. I think this could be avoided if it was made clear that parents need to stay with their children. I saw allot of parents using this place like a free for all daycare. Kids were running around everywhere and their parents were just plopped down not paying any attention. I loved interacting with the centers with my children. They especially love the stage. But again allot of the costumes were torn or missing things.
  • Fun things to do. Great place to be. It's the workers that could pay a little more attention and have the kids actually follow rules. My 1.5 year old barely got the chance to play because everything was used.
