  • Like an indoor playground for kids. Four year old absolutely loved the place spent over 6 hours there without getting bored. Easily could have occupied another day there if needed. I gather some of the areas/simulations change over time, so depending on when you go there may be slight variations from the pictures posted. Some of the areas have more appeal than others. Top rated ones would probably be the construction area, hospital, clubhouse, train, and pirate room. Obviously this facility has been there for a while, so parts may seem dated, but the kids don't mind or notice and it seems to be kept clean. I was surprised by how low traffic was even on a Saturday during a holiday weekend. Seemed to get busier closer to lunch and thereafter. It's a great relief from the heat during summer and plenty of places for adults to sit or stand to monitor your kids nearby. The creators of this place put a lot of thought and effort into this place for kids, and it's really a hidden gem. A lot to stimulate the minds and imagination of youngsters.
  • My boys really enjoyed this place. I sat down and let them roam around and explore. Best way to get the kiddos out of your hair for a few hours!
