  • i took both my 9 year old and my 3 year old to this and both enjoyed it and found plenty to keep them busy. i scheduled 2 hours and wish i had planned on more time.  more »
  • This is a small place tucked away in a mall. That made it easy to have lunch later as there were lots of options. The space is very inviting and was perfect for our 7 and 4 year old grandchildren...  more »

  • This place is pretty expensive but it’s a good alternative to taking your kids to one of those indoor play places which are also pretty expensive. Here at least you get the STEM educational experience out of it. However, this place charges for adults which is annoying. We ended up just getting a membership. It pays for itself if you are going to visit more than twice in a year. It’s a bit small but they have plenty of activities to entertain the kids for an hour. We have a 4 yo and a 2 yo. The 4 yo gets much more out of it but that’s okay. The experiment bar is fun to do hands-on science experiments but I wish they would change them up a bit more often. Same with some of the activities in the back room like the hover craft building activity. They love seeing and petting the live snakes!
  • We are members and love spending time here. I just wish they included more updates to the activities. We don't go as much as we would like because of this but if you haven't been it's alot of fun for little ones.
