Not amazing, not horrible. A delightful rainy day activity. The tilted room and the bubbles were a hit. Everything else is pretty random.

My husband and I went on a whim and were actually surprised how we enjoyed it! It is not a gimmick but a natural phenomenon. Good for a rainy day.

It is amazing the Great Science Lessons and Having fun at the Same Time. It is a very small place, but lots of hands on stuff to explore.

I found this attraction to be cute, but not worth the price of admission. The place was quite dirty and smelly. We did it. We won't do it again!!More

We were in the area so stopped by Mystery Hill. Some interesting finds. The kids had a really good time. May be a little pricey for what you get, but worth stopping by if you've already done the big area attractions.More
