We were in Toledo for the 2018 YMCA Gymnastics Nationals, and decided to go here to stay out of the heat. This was great choice, we all loved it. A large variety of things to do, for kids of all ages. Well worth the money.

Only if you want food or a locker. The only other cost is for the simulator for non-members. Not sure if it is free for reciprocal membership or not.
