Easy to order from, just print from email and show at venue. They had only been open couple of days. Nice interactive app as you go through. Great price and perks like picture packages and downloads. Staff was very helpful and nice. Very affordable. Loved it!

"4 hours of FUN"

We needed more than 4 hours! In missed several things my husband saw. I liked the savor challenge the best, then throwing the balls at the falling targets. Finally I loved the kaleidoscope photo we took with our cameras. We didn’t buy the photo package but if we’d have had kids we might have they were reasonably priced. I liked this place a lot. They had a couple cute things in the gift shop.

"Great fun!!!"

I am often very hesitant with this type of attraction. Do not miss out on this! What a great time. There are never any points of boredom. We got the VIP package through Groupon, but even at full price it’s well worth it. Everyone there was incredibly helpful and polite. Will definitely visit when we come again.

You need to be interested in the National Enquirer's take on events for this to be entertaining and/or educational. Most everything is related to celebrity gossip or theories surrounding JFK, Princess Diana, OJ Simpson, Big Foot, Michael Jackson, etc. Was not interested enough in any of the interactive things to bother doing them. For sure would not recommend paying full price for this or go a second time.

"Very Disappointed "

I was extremely glad that I got my ticket half price on Groupon. This museum requires a lot of reading and interaction with displays in order to be entertaining. The only cool thing is the bubble pit. Otherwise, it was a big waste of $13 for all of us. We regretted spending the time and money.

When we went in I was not sure I would like it at first but after the first room I was having a really good time. Great staff to help you get the most out of your visit. And we you get ready to leave make sure you say goodbye to Annette..
