I think I had as much fun on the Jungle than my 7 year old son. I love the fact that it's actually 3 floors talls and many different entries and exits but you can see your child from every angle, loved it.

Great way to spend the day with younger ones. The kids were engaged with a lot of hands on activities. There is a lot of educational and physical activities. Parking is very walkable and validation is very much appreciated.

This spot is ok if its not ideal to be outdoors or your time is limited in Baltimore. In my opinion, there are many other things to do with children that won't break the bank. Don't get me wrong, this place isn't bad; it just...More

To be honest we didn't go through with the kids we sat in the small eating area while they ran around. From the looks of it seems to take about 2 hours but of course more with children because they never want to leave
