They have five different themed rooms with lots of stuff to do for all ages 3-10. My kids especially loved the “supermarket” (with “working” checkout stations) and the water area (boats and car are available). There is also a pirate ship (nice), a castle (role-playing,...More

This is in downtown, right near the Visitor's Center. I was there with a 2 and 6 year old and there was plenty for both of them to do. There were different themed rooms (i.e. grocery store, medieval times, water, transportation and arts and crafts)....More
