Affordable family fun. My daughter loves this place. We stayed there for half the day and she didn't want to leave. With all the smoke from the fires, Ashland has this place to keep the kids busy.

This is a very interactive experience. The bubble exhibit was the best. Some of the areas were closed or not functioning but there was plenty to do. Kids love this place.
