A lot of people which made us feel walking in it would be a mad house. Not the case. Our granddaughter had no issues with what her and her friend wanted to do. No waiting at all. We all got hungry and went to the atrium and I felt the food was very reasonably priced.

So fun!

What a great time I had there with my 4 year d daughter. She loves imaginary play and she was in heaven because she got to do it all day long. We were there from open to close and didn’t even get to everything. She has already asked me if we could go back next summer. I think this will be a yearly trip for us every year. I wish we had a place like this close to home I would for sure get a membership. For sure worth the drive! From Newmarket, Ontario Canada :)
