    The science centers okay, but I definitely prefer the old one the best. This new science center is more like an oversized Daycare, after an hour or so of wandering around you've seen pretty much everything. There's definitely a lot to be desired and while its fun for kids I feel it's lacking for the adults or teenagers.

    I definitely found myself sitting and chatting with other parents rather than trying to engage my niece of nephew because they were already busy playing in the big jungle gym or with the toys provided.

    It's a great place for my 5-year old boy and his friends. They just love there and only leave when it is closed.

    They really enjoyed the creative kid center, just besides the entrance. Besides that, the other areas provide fun activities. They played the gear, pipe, wind, even electricity. For me, I can find something I like.

    I recommended this to several friends, most of them bought the pass and they all agree their kids had a wonderful time in there.

    My almost 3 year-old really loved it. She could spend 30 mins to engage in one activity and then move to the next at Kid creative center. I am considering buy a membership so i can take care there every week.

I would actually prefer going to the old one better because there was a lot more to interact with.

So much money spent for something so disappointing. We used to have memberships but found the visits just the same experience over and over again.
There hasn't been a time when we've visited since the grand opening where we haven't found many of the displays out of order or not working properly.
The cafeteria still spews out the same fast food greasiness that you would never expect to find in a $40 million dollar project with LEED certification.
C'mon folks! We could have done so much better. Even the old science centre in Edmonton offers more.
