There’s a similar place here in Arkansas called The Wonder Place that we take our daughter to. This place was like that place only better! They had so much to do. There are all kinds of stations that have hands on experiences.

Took our grandkids to this creative and innovative learning center. They played on a fire engine, a race car and motor boat. Everything is interactive. You could spend hours there. The grandkids loved it.
