  • It's a 5-minute drive from Pasadena's Old Town. It is a place like the Youth Science Center in the Japanese style in nature. There are a lot of learning attractions of the experience type, and you can play carefully. I think it's wiser to bring a lunch box at a coffee shop and on Saturdays and Sundays. I don't think it's a place to go over and over again, so you don't need an annual pass.

  • What a great day! Our family had a great visit while visiting with an 18 month old. Plenty of activities to keep the entire family entertained.  more »

  • We frequent this place a lot. Last week my daughters and I had the best time. Jonah, Vanessa, and Dustin were amazing! They were great with the children. Jonah made a bracelet for my daughter. We had a friendly chat with Vanessa. Dustin had stickers for the kids and was super sweet and attentive. It's nice to see employees who really enjoy interacting with the children. I hope to see them again.
  • Really fun place to take the kids. On the weekends it’s really busy and the wait for lines are long but on weekdays, it’s great. However, on most weekends, you have a person that gets your kids to sing and dance. Kids love it, although kids younger than 13 years will love it more. I took my niece and she was about 14 years of age and she did enjoy herself but not as much as the younger kids. There are a lot of activities for them to do there. It would be a whole day affair.
