Took our grandkids to this creative and innovative learning center. They played on a fire engine, a race car and motor boat. Everything is interactive. You could spend hours there. The grandkids loved it.

You really won't want to. This place will keep your kids busy and active. Eat after. There are some vending machines for small snacks and a room for nursing.
