  • Great place for kids to play/learn and adults to enjoy being parents. Plan to spend several hours here. There is enough to occupy your child all day. Parking is insane. But you get 50 percent off at the deck near by if you validate. Such fun!
  • Had a great time with my wife and kids. Plenty for the kids to do and they don't frown upon adults joining in a bit! Make sure to check out the working beehive! It was so cool to see them in action.
