    You have to pay extra for a lot of the "fun" things to do like the 3D movies and Myth Busters exhibits.

    You can pack and bring your lunch and drinks in. Prices in the cafe are a little high.

    Buy your tickets online so you don't have to wait in line. Online tickets are good for one year. You can buy tickets online using your smartphone. This saved me half an hour during Christmas Break.

    If you're here on a quiet day, go to Adventure and ask to see the throne room. It's definitely a cool and unique experience!

    Go at night, park on the little street with meters across from the parking lot (you don't have to pay) and walk around back where the fountains are. Sit on the steps and see the city lights. Kiss her!

    The Splish-Splash! area is great for younger children to play in. Just make sure you put on one of the raincoats on your children.

    Bring an extra change of clothes. Kids LOVE to play in the water in Ocean and can get themselves pretty wet! Our Girl Scouts had a great time at Camp-In!

    ADVENTURE! Unless your phone has a decent flash that can stay on for a while, bring a small flashlight, a pencil, and maybe some extra paper or small notebook. You'll need it.

    Terribly disappointing. Little Kidspace was too young for our three-year-old, but everything else was too advanced. NOTHING to do for kids in the 3-6 range.

    Chris Thompson · July 12, 2010
  • Julenna N.

    Gadgets is a fun spot for kids who love seeing new contraptions and how things work.

    The Ocean exhibit is our favorite. If you have kids age 5 or under check out the play are on the third floor. Our daughter can spend hours there.
