I took my youngest grandaughter here for a day trip for just the two of us. She was only 4 years old and had a great time. Myself, I found it interesting but from a childs point of view it must be amazing.

A variety of activities, not just spectating, for kids; a nice level of supervision with the attendants actually paying attention. The best assessment: the kids wanted to go back.

This place is chaos. There are children running around like wild animals with no supervision. I will not be taking my kids back here.

I'd say a couple of hours to all day. There's a lot of creative activities and open play opportunities, so most kids won't get bored, which leaves it up to how long the grown ups are willing to give it!
