Review: They re-did this place in late 2017, so I decided to check it out. We had taken our son there when he was 1 and 2 years old because the area designated for really young children was decent, and was at least better than what I had seen at that time for small toddlers in other play places. That being said, until they re-did the place this year, I hadn't thought to go there because I've become a kid play-place snob after living in Korea. (Darn it Korea and your way too cool kid cafes and Pororo Parks...) Anyway, after checking it out, I'd say it's now one of the better places in the Twin Cities thanks to the remodel. It's $5.50 for admission (only kids are charged) and the open gym with things to scoot around on, plus that bouncy house is only available on Monday and Wednesday mornings. My son's favorite area is the digital slide. When you slide down, the digital images on the screen are impacted by your body sliding down. It's almost like a life-sized iPad, but your kiddo is running up the padded steps again and again getting lots of exercise.
