Kids loved the "Abendago" slide and soda shoppe. They also provided free scavenger hunts good for older kids. Disappointed that my oldest wasn't able to get a radio spot but we had lots of fun anyway!

Really a nice little place if you can get past the religious undertone. Perfect for the kiddos. Fun slide. Good popcorn and cute little cafe. It's free without all the extras. They have free coffee as well,
