    Good for young kids. Thankfully lots of seating opportunities for grown-ups. There is even a guest WiFi. For some reason with a password. guest/spring at the moment.

    Super fun! Try to eat at home or bring your own food though, as the food court there is always super loud and crowded. Make sure to go to all of the rooms, as they have something fun everywhere!

    Great place for kids. Make sure u bring some extra clothes, cause of water events. Food are cheap and reasonable. Big place, story telling. Parking is a problem. Have to pay 5$ all day. A block away

    In addition to a change of clothes, bring galoshes or water shoes, or just another pair of shoes, so kids don't have to wear soaked sneakers home.
