  • This is one of the only cool places to take your kids to in Vermont. They do an exceptional job of keeping the kids engaged and entertained. We usually spend at least 4 hours here. In the summer you can tap on an extra 2 hours because there's a nice water area outside. You can bring your own lunch and snacks too. It's well worth the minimum cost to get in.
