Overview

Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge.

Not for those with fear of confinded spaces, but for our children it's AWESOME. So many nooks and crannies hard to explored everything in one day. Might want to wear long pants and even kneepads.

Friday evening will be the least crowded time of the holiday weekend. We do allow kids in after 5 pm, we just require them to be with an adult 18 years old or older.
