Was so impressed with my visit yesterday. My son had a terrible nose bleed just as we arrived. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, all with a smile. It was so busy but they never seemed stressed or harassed....More

The play barn is a good rainy day activity, but the food and drinks are average at best and the loud music that gets played is totally unnecessary, it just adds to the noise!

The people that own the playbarn have you over a barrel really. There is nowhere else like this for kids to go play, on this scale near Elgin. If they want to go play inside then you end up having to pay ridiculous admission prices,...More
