I bring my grandkids here when I want to take them somewhere that is affordable for me and fun for them! There's lots to keep them busy and their imaginations can run wild. The set-up is nice...different areas sport different themes...construction, an office, a cafe,...More

Perfect for children under 7. Different areas for roleplaying. Recently updated but quickly worn down, for the cost of admission I would expect it to be better maintained. Rather annoying that adults and children have to pay admission. They do offer family memberships, it saves...More
