I hate going here
Feb 20, 2015 by: John P from
My daughter and her little friends enjoy this place but I do not. The place is a madhouse. It's loud. It's messy. It's chaotic. The activities never change. Some of the activities are broken. The giant climbing structure is kind of fun but why are there so many rude, pushy children. Just wait your turn, kid! The art area is good. Kids can make a little themed are project. The area for really little kids was actually quieter than the rest of the place. Nice for a little break. There is very little staff around so don't expect much assistance. There is no food here aside from the vending machines in the locker area. I was actually glad of this. When lunch time rolled around, it was a great opportunity to leave. If you're looking for something for young kids in the Inner Harbor, skip this place and go to the aquarium or the science center or anything else.
Great for older kids

Went with my 4 yr old and 16 month old. The huge climbing thing right when you walk in is def for more older kids as my 4 yr old had trouble on a lot of the rope ladders and spaces to climb up. There is A LOT to do in this place and we only saw 1/4 of it. There is a small place with lockers where you can feed your kids. Bring your own lunch, all that is here are 3 vending machines. The eating area was filled up VERY fast. We ended up leaving and going to the Subway next door which is small and fills up fast too. They will validate for parking in the parking garage right there. It's not free but is $7 which is nice. Only on weekends. I had planned to spend all day there but my 4 yr old asked to leave after only 2.5 hours. Like I said, more for older kids 6+
fun for 6 or under

We took our 7 year old and he had fun but much of the place is too juvenile for his age group. The 3 story climbing structure was the highlight for him. It seems like a good place for a 4 year old. It is clean and well staffed and priced under $15
Great Place for Kids to Discover

Great place for kids to run around and play. Lots of opportunity for kids of all ages. Both my 1yr old and 3 yr old enjoyed themselves, and found great things to do. Toddler room was a huge hit!
One word: WOW!

The moment you step into the Center for the ticket lobby you come face to face with the extraordinary three story tall structure of tunnels, ladders, climbing walls, rope bridges and an assortment of caves and hidey holes. Surrounding the structure are rooms which house the likes of the Water Room, Indoor soccer field,hand-eye coordination games that would leave any child occupied for,hours!
