What's not to love. Lots of choices for all ages. We waited until our kiddo was one to buy a pass - now he loves going! It is great for hot summer days and cold winters.

Even as an adult I thought this place was so fun!! It reminds me of a children's museum I went to as a kid. Very interactive, super fun, all kinds of things for them to tinker around with.

Good for all ages! Me and a friend took our kids here two 11 year olds and one 4 year old. My son one of the 11 year olds loved the lab and the auto mechanic.
