This is a great spot for large groups. We had 50 students and their were several large groups that were there at the same time. We purchased lunch there and they accommodated us easily and were super organized. Fun place for students and adults!

Great place. We arrived at noon and didnt leave until closing (6pm). I had 2 2 year olds in my group and they never got bored. If you take your time and watch all the free shows and talks its definitely worth the money
