We really enjoyed all the activities. The kids thought the motion roller coaster was super cool. I liked the Tesla coil, super neat! The cost included so much, it was easy to spend hours. We had the deal that included laser tag and the tree climbing. Laser tag is always fun, and the climbing was thrilling

Took my two kids, ages 6 and 15 to spend a few hours, I purchased tickets in advance on line. The wait to check in was rather long, they had one person at the counter.

This was so much fun for my son and his friend . We didn't expect there to be so much to experience , we did not even do everything because we had to meet the rest of our group. The boys loved the astronaut training and the hurricane shack. Bubbles was also a lot of fun. Make sure you really... More

I was pleasantly surprised that my family enjoyed this attraction as much as they did. We've been to numerous area attractions and not one has gone over as well as this one did, and it's educational to boot!

We just visited this for the first time while traveling through New York on a rainy day.
