  • some great activities for my 9 and 7 y/o. some even got them moving! would be great for a staff member to be around to better engage the kiddos and explain the activities in which they are participating. kind of like a 3-floor playground, children running room to room...CHAOS
  • i spent 5 hours there with two grandchildren and HAD NO CLUE we had been there that long, until they got cranky... which signaled meal time, but it was 2:00, holly molly, what a terrific venue rain or shine. the stage with actors was terrific, the golf balls, and bubbles was over the top, the very (at least to me) climbing platforms, was making me fearful, but not the children. the dinosaurs exhibit really connected with the smaller ones, and they talked about it at dinner.
