We liked this activity but thought it was a litter over priced for what it was. Essentially it's like a museum. The fun interactive things helped keep our children (ages between 4-9) occupied.. some bits were a little boring for them

Enjoyed it more than I thought. My toddler wasn’t so sure of some of it but the 4 yr old and 12 yr old loved it.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
