Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might...more

My 9 year old daughter didn't want to leave after 5 hours if fun. So many paths and slides, you just don't know what you'll find! Tips: If it's summer, start outside before it gets hot. Wear comfy clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Wear...More

I would say no. It is not a child safe place. I would say a child would need to be old enough to be out of the parents site for periods of time. There are very small passageways and slides that only one person can go through... More

It is a downtown area but I consider it safe. It is close to the many parks along Market Street, and the Arch makes for a great twofer.
