It has art options, imaginative play spaces and some climbing structures/slides. Overall, it was a really good alternative to an indoor play space for us. One word of warning though, there is no snack bar.

My 3-year-old kid spent four hours here until closing; they could have stayed longer. Lots of stuff for a child to do (and not that expensive compared to other children's play museums), although it can be somewhat disorganized (like trying to find puzzle pieces) with...More

We were in town in January, and worried it would be crowded at an indoor activity on a cold day. The facility is big enough with a range of activities, and never felt crowded. Our 3 and 5 year old had a great time. The...More
