    Activities We Did:

    My daughter spent most of the 3 hours in the play village! Definitely burns off cabin fever energy. She also rode on the train, boats and carousel.

    Good to Go!:

    I think it’s worth it to come just for the play village — it’s huge and big enough for you to go up with your child,

    Not so Much/ Suggestions for Improvement:

    It gets crowded and then the lines are long for rides and there are a lot of school age children, so if you have a younger child go early.

    Lots of rides for all ages and the train is great for the whole family. Only $15 for a play all day pass! Great Value.

    Activities We Did:

    My husband and I took our 3 year old daughter and got the all-day passes (around $15 each) for each of us. We spent about 3.5 hours there and also had lunch there as well.

    Good to Go!:

    This place is perfect for a 3 year old – there are only 2 rides (airplace and bumber boats) where the kids have to go on themselves, all other rides one parent or both parents can go! She is still too small to go on by herself, so we did all the rides other than the ones mentioned above. My daughter loved the choo-choo train the most – we did that one twice . Also a big favourite was the bumpy-twirly thing, not sure what it was called – you sit in your own cart and the ride goes around and around with bumps and jumps along the way. After we did all the rides we had lunch at Subway, followed by an ice cream at Baskin Robbins.

    Not so Much/ Suggestions for Improvement:

    Wish there were more food places for kids – there were too many options so we went with Subway. Would be nice to have a Pizza Pizza perhaps?

    Quick Tips for Others:

    There are lockers behind the airplane ride, where you need to have a loonie to get a locker – so come prepared .
    Also, come early, right when it opens – we came at 11AM and it was perfect – by the time it was 1pm it was very very busy, so many strollers you could not get by, and very long line-ups (half hour or more!) for every ride.

    Date of Visit: Jan 2012

    Activities We Did:

    Rides- train, carousel, Fantasy Flight (balloon ride that goes up and spins), Ships Ahoy (like tea cups), play village.

    Good to Go!:

    I paid $30 for myself and my daughter (just under 36″) and had to drag her away after 3 hours she was having so much fun! We did everything we could have done given her height and with me accompanying her except for the ferris wheel since there was a long wait. (She also could have done the bumper boats but didn’t want to do it alone.) I was really impressed by the number of rides she could go on for her age, the whole setup and design of the place, and the fact that we didn’t have to walk far to get from one side of the place to the other!

    There’s a toddler area in the Play Village for children 4 years and under. Not too much to do but look at mirrors, climb up and come down a wide flat “slide”, but my daughter had a good time here. We went up to the top floor to explore (not much there but a mirror maze and tube slides, and another party room)- lots of older kids running around but they were surprisingly good about watching out for my daughter!

    There are 3 or 4 games that are friendly for older children (older than my daughter anyway) and adults who really want to win a prize for their child

    Lots of parking of course since it’s in a mall. Food choices in the “amusement park” include Baskin Robbins, Tim Hortons, Subway, funnel cakes and mini doughnuts. There’s a spa beside the carousel where you can get a pedicure and manicure for a good price if your other half doesn’t mind taking your child on a ride or two while you take a break

    Not so Much/ Suggestions for Improvement:

    I was surprised that there weren’t any smaller toilets for kids or family washrooms. My daughter is still scared of the “big” toilets and takes some convincing to use them!
    Not many places to sit and have a snack or meal except in the fast food places. We had a quick snack and sat on the edge of a low wall by the carousel.

    Quick Tips for Others:

    Half lockers are beside the Play Village for $1 and full lockers beside the big washrooms also for $1. There’s also a family rest area beside the big washrooms with 2 single chairs and a baby changing area.
    After the ride is over staff need to “undo” your seat belt with a metal “tool”. Don’t be like me, ultra confused about how to get this darn thing off (this should be simple, right?!), and the staff person grinning at me, “I will help you”.

    We watched a girl get very upset on the Spinners. When it stopped, she seemed extremely relieved… but then it started again and went backwards! Be forewarned if you are thinking of trying your child on this ride!!
