I took my son here last summer when nothing was really open and it was too hot to play outside for long. My son LOVED it!! We bought an annual pass and have used it a few times. It's paid for itself already.

Cheap day of fun. They even allow you to bring lunch in or leave and bring lunch back. My 6 yr old and 6 month old both have fun. Great place to play all day where it is cool.
