My grandchildren love going to this indoor playground with something for every age group. There's even a beach with sand for the little ones to play. The older kids can enjoy supermarket shopping and counting money at the cash register. Lots of activities.

We went on a Tuesday morning and our kids were ready to go after about an hour. They are 3 and 5 and enjoyed the big treehouse the most. Several other exhibits were under construction, so no “touch tunnel” like others had raved about. There...More

Great Explorations had potential to be a fun time for our grandson. Unfortunately, the air quality forced us to leave after about fifteen minutes. I first noticed the strong smell of mold or mildew when we walked into the main room. It became much stronger...More
