    Boys enjoy it just as much as girls, adults enjoy it as much as kids. Recommended - great way to spend about an hour and a half.

Ask for the "Scavenger Hunt" pages--this made our visit so much more fun! And we had an engaging, enjoyable time for an hour, but any more would have been a bit of a stretch given the ages of our group.
