Fodor's Review

At this interactive museum, adults are encouraged to play every bit as much as children. A favorite attraction is the three-story KidWorks, a futuristic jungle gym on which the adventurous can climb, crawl, slide, and swing their way through stairs, slides, ropes, zip lines, and tunnels, and even across a narrow footbridge. Learn about the Earth's atmosphere as you splash around in Wonders of Water (rain slickers and shoes are provided). Cook food in Tiny's Diner, an interactive

restaurant. A soccer field becomes a stage for dance-offs and virtual races. In Miss Perception's Mystery House, you can help solve a mystery surrounding the disappearance of the Baffeld family by sifting through clues that appeal to your senses. Changing exhibits allow for even more play.

Your kids, and you, will always remember this place.

Have you ever said "I wish they had a place like this when I was growing up?" This is it, a three story urban treehouse with slides, rope bridges, craines to play with, zip lines... It was a blast, and I am 31! For smaller children there is a smaller version off to the side in a quieter area, there are other side rooms with plenty to do if you get tired of climbing and there is even an mini-indoor soccer field. I would recommend calling to see

how many birthday parties they have scheduled and rainy days always result in a packed house. But, they have a membership package that allows for free return trips and entrance into other parks and museums around the country if you want to pay a bit more up front.
