I found parking to be a hassle. Our toddlers enjoyed the soap bubbles and sand pit, but I was underwhelmed after being there for 30 minutes. We did not eat here, but had to check it out.

As a teenager, I loved it here. I didn't eat any food so I can't rate that. However, there was a super fun dance party thing that I went to which had a DJ who played good music. Everyone had a good time dancing. There...More
