Great for kids! There are multiple packages to choose from. The staff was super friendly; I had my son (who has CP and is in a wheelchair) and 5 nieces and nephews - the activities met everyone's needs. They offer military discount and give you a $5 off coupon for WonderWorks across the street!

It was raining hard all day and we all needed a day out of the sun anyways. Parking was difficult, we had to follow someone who was walking out to take their parking spot.

It wasn't anything special, it actually creeped my 5 year old out the whole time. I would definitely say it's for older kids. Nice people that work there though!
