Have taken our kids and now grandkids to this ever evolving facility in Raleigh. The opportunity for interaction is limitless. From toddlers to teen, there is something for everyone. The parents can also find ways to guide the conversation and activities to enhance the experience.

Too much going on, loud and not too exciting. If that type of atmosphere does not annoy you. Then this is a great place to visit.

We spent all day. We had as much fun as the kids. Everything is hands on. Energy, art, woodworking, legos, pretend community, water tables, building racecars, money skills, gardening, and sports center.
