It is interesting enough once but it's not something that I would pay for a membership.

My 3 year old had a ton of fun at the Health Adventure, and they have a new space exhibit that's amazing! Can't beat a location where you can get a little shopping done at the same time too.

No one wants to be told about good habits on a trip but they do it in a fun none preachy way. Lots of science also. Great interactive for kids. Lots of space. You will be happy you stopped for a break or on a rainy day.

I had no idea Park Ridge Hospitals had taken over the Health Adventure. It was such a great experience. The staff was so friendly, the entire place was very clean, and there was as much fun as educational stuff to do. My kids had so much fun, and I had a blast spending the day with them at the Health... More

I have two small boys and they love to go to the health adventure. We have taken them to other places in the area like Fun Depot, but I would prefer to take them to the Health Adventure because I feel like they are doing things that are more educational. also, being a member is smart, because you have paid...

The new location is so much easier. I like the fact that you can park right there now! it is a lot more convenient. The one thing I dreaded the most about the old location was walking so far from the parking deck with three small children. My kids had a blast (as so did we) learning and seeing all... More

Free parking makes all the difference. 2x size of old place. Over 50 stations for kids to explore. My 2 year old loves the new creative play space. Membership is for a year and pays for itself after just 3 visits. Other places charge every time and don't offer the variety. Enjoying watching my 3 kids explore!

I took my daughter to the Health Adventure thinking that maybe she would be too old for it at 8. I was wrong! She and three friends had a blast for the day climbing and playing on the exhibits, snowboarding, learning about the body and recording puppet shows on video. While we were there, we saw a class of elderly... More
