We are sure this would be fun for first time visitors. We thought there may be some new items and went again, with about 7 years in between visits, but nothing really new.

Each Attraction for a reasonable visit will take less than 1 hour, I would say Ripples has the most interest and a little more than an hour if you read the information ...
