    We started with the 7 story tower of adventure. The train is what they were pulling is to from the second we walked in the door! They could play in the driver's area and learn how the train runs and also in the passenger area.

    As we headed up to play the kids got to freeze their shadows, walk on a keyboard, and more! They had a blast playing with the air organ.

    They had a blast in the ambulance. My oldest daughter had to ride in an ambulance a few years ago and the kids always talk about it when they see one, I was able to use this experience to explain how they helped her!

    We then headed down to the space area and got to walk the planets and see how much they weigh on some of the planets. They got to see constellations. If you have kids slightly older than mine, they can do the moonwalk simulator. Make sure to wear sturdy shoes, hubby was in flip-flops so he didn’t get to try it out either.

    They also have a flight simulator and Planetarium show, both require an extra ticket.
