My children loved playing on the giant Monarch caterpillar. They also enjoyed playing in the little play kitchen under the stairs. Upstairs includes binoculars for bird watching with an amazing view, a few reptiles, rocks and minerals, and a sensory station where you can examine various insect samples. The bathroom was spotless. Don’t forget your free Ranger Rick magazine on the way out. We had so much fun, we had to come visit twice on our vacation.
