  • My oldest son is nonverbal and autistic, and he had a BLAST here. My youngest didn't want to leave their play area and both of my kids enjoyed all of the activities they have around the entire center. The staff was so polite and helpful and there's something for everyone there! We will definitely be returning.
  • I came here with my mom and we had so much dang fun, we couldn't stand it. We always come back here when we have some free time and are in the mood for something fun and a little mind-bending. They've got the massive bubble-maker and tons of other cool science-y stuff. Kids would definitely learn a lot from this place, but like I said, it is so much fun for the kid-at-heart adults out there as well!!
