This place is fantastic!! My 4 and 6 year old played here for hours. Super affordable, fun, and educational. Not much more I could hope for. My husband and I even got in on the fun and had rocket making contests.

I don't know who enjoyed it more kids or grandkids. We spent four hours there on a day off from skiing. Will definitely take more our family there.

Our grandkids love to go to Powerhouse. They love the topographical table, climbing to top of Powerhouse, simulator rocket, etc. Kids like to use their imagination.
