  • I took my kids here and they had a pretty fun time. My 11 year old did have as great of at time as my 6 year old. I would suggest you bring a extra pair of clothes if you do not live close.

  • My 18 month old had the absolute best time!! We were there for 2 hours and hadn’t even exhausted the main level. Stroller friendly for younger kids too. The cafe was amazing as well. Gluten free friendly! We will certainly be back. And like another review said, it was very helpful to bring a change of clothes for after playing in the splash area.
  • We booked tickets online the night before and it is worth getting there on time, parking lot gets full and takes time to find a spot. Once inside, the only challenge is keeping up with the child! We really appreciated the little respite room where we could take a break from the sensory overload. If your child is on the spectrum and is a sensory seeker then this place has a lot to offer. The cafe is now open and offers fresh cooked healthy meals, they even cut the grilled cheese to look like a monster.. With cold weather this place seems to be very popular and will be busy so come ready. They have a big coat and stroller room as you enter. A separate area for kids under 2.. The water play area is a toddler magnet so bring a change of clothes if your little one likes to splash. They have two big birthday party rooms in the cafe area.. Over all a great place to bring little ones!
