I went with my daughter, a seven year old. We both enjoyed the place. A few "do by yourself" items attracted my daughter. There was a show - not extraordinary but impressive. It may take around one and a half hour to two.

Great things kids can learn and experience. All age groups can enjoy and play. Food is not good. You will need 3+ hours to complete it.
