  • Very Nice food, bit too crispy fries apart from that I enjoyed the meal
  • This was fun for my 3+ year old son but he has quite the imagination and loves fire trucks. Play area is small and it's mostly a museum, and exhibits are not that interactive. But for interaction you have firefighters leading tours and answering questions, a huge plus! On the whole we had a great time in our 90 minute visit but I don't think it's anywhere close to worth the cost, that's why I'm ranking it only three stars.
