We almost skipped this stop on our vacation, but are so happy that we didn't! Our 2 year old had a blast playing here (especially in the ambulance!!!), and we loved that there were so many different activities for him to do. Some of the...More

Wonderful place with a carousel that runs for 15 minutes on the hour, every hour, with $4 for unlimited rides. My 7-year old enjoyed hours of fun play. The entrance price of $9 is a great deal, plus a $1 discount for AAA members. There...More

I took our 2-year-old granddaughter and her friend here and it was ideal for them. The stations were clean and well-stocked. Staff was helpful as we left and I didn't want to buy them toys; a worker gave them each a sticker!
