Kind of Boring; especially for older children
I wanted my kids to like this place. I took my kids here for a couple of hours because I thought they'd enjoy it. They were totally bored. There isn't a lot to do for older children (meaning older than three) and they don't really have very many toys in general. They did do periodic activities, but they weren't that exciting. The rock climbing wall left a lot to be desired. For one, it didn't seem very safe, kids weren't strapped to anything in case they fell, etc, though it wasn't too big.

I'm just disappointed that this place was so boring for my kids. Before taking them there, I can honestly say that I've never heard "this is boring" out of their mouths.
Some of the staff were very nice, while others were just okay. Overall, it wasn't a horrible experience, but it wasn't great either and the prices were higher than other drop-in facilities.
On a side note, I'm mortified that the previous reviewer had to experience hearing inappropriate comments about her child who has special needs. This place is supposed to be a special needs-friendly place.
Overall, the promises made in the brochure were not delivered by the facility.
Pros: location and the fact that you can order dinner or lunch.
Cons: beginning hours, activities, lack of toys, seemed like a somewhat empty set of rooms
