My granddaughter and I have a special day each week. Given the choice, she would choose Kaleidoscope every time. She loves all the artwork possibilities.

This attraction appealed more to my special needs 15 year old son, then it did my 12 year old daughter. It is more for the elementary school age child, or for someone who has a child with special needs such as ADHD.

This is so much fun it is sad to say my kids are starting to get too old for it and they are 10 and 11. This is free and your kids will love just looking at stuff let alone making things.

A terrific and free 40 minutes of fun for kids and families. Drawing, painting, crafting, and more is what is waiting for you. My kids favorite was the melted crayon area and the jigsaw puzzle creator.

Kids love this place. Wish they offered more time for kids to create stuff but can't complain when it's free. SUPER cute and full of stations to make crafts. Boys and girls would love this.

We've gone a few times now and the kids always seem to enjoy it and not get bored. Personally once or twice is enough for me. The kids can do almost everything they offer in the time allotted for each rotation. Not sure if they...More

Yes, it is first come, first serve. There is no entry fee. I think they run it by sessions...in other words I think you can get in line and get in 2 or 3 different times each day. (We got there before 9:00 a.m. and just... More
