"Fantastic place for kids to burn off energy, play and learn. Different activities will help their motor skills, stimulate their imagination and educate especially with help from an adult. What a deal compared to Bay Area admissions... Please expand to the Bay!"



 
We go here frequently and have for years. Staff members are always so wonderful and friendly. There are many fun areas for children, including a baby area (where my now 4 year old started!). A local gem- do support them, because they do it for you!

Thank you, Santa Cruz, for voting us
