This place is awesome and have taken our grandkids there a few times and they love it. So do I as there’s so much to see and do. I eventually catch up with the kids. A must try place.

That would be the higher end of age groups. Our grandson is a shy 14 year old and he enjoyed it as much as his brother and sisters (5, 10 and 3). The group of friends effect would probably help them to enjoy it as well.
