You see the love this community has when you see the space thats been created for its children. Everytown should have a place like this. Why not start a chain??

Perfect for elementary aged kids, they do have a teen night. Lots to do here, offering many different workshops.

great fun amazing that such a small island has so much to offer the young ones. my 4 year old loved it and also loved the playground outside. the website was nice, but the center was even better, can't wait to go back.

The Funhouse is the most creative, child oriented activity center I've seen. The magic begins when you enter the building. Our grand-children have spent hours there for several days at a time participating in the varied activities. It's a must see for all of the "young at heart".
