If your children are bored, this is the place to take them for hours of fun and education. A person can easily spend hours just going from section to section such as a bank, grocery store, hospital. A great place to learn stuff and have fun at the same time. It never gets old

I went during the rain and this was such a great place for the grandkids to play. We enjoyed playing doctor , but most of all shopping for groceries. Grandkids are 4 and 2 years of age and there was plenty of things for them to get into and run around. Perfect rain day!

My kids could have stayed and played all day! It's new, it's clean, and there's plenty to see and do! We will be visiting again for sure. I would have never known about this place if it weren't from a groupon.

There were activities that each of our grandchildren enjoyed. In all, we were there over two hours and never did any of the three ask when were we leaving.
