What is there not to do here? This is the best bang for value if you have small and mid-age children. I enjoy the year round classics of the fun land with the carousel, my husband doesn't complain, my ten year old finds something, every...More

I would allow 3-4 hours. There maybe certain areas that don't interest you or the kids and you can skip those areas.
