This was poor....we struggled to make the visit last 30 minutes. For $88 this was excessive!! I could go on and on but please just save your money and go somewhere else instead.

A brilliant place to take little ones. He had a ball and loved the movement and sound of the dinosaurs. Very cautious to pat the small one and the walking one but had a go anyway.
