    Absolutely amazing place with so much to see, for the young to adults. Grab a map and figure out what’s your move. I found myself having to stop the kids from just running up to an exhibit and touching everything and if it would interact in any ways, and if not then they’d run to the next thing- there is a some of reading involved so you know the instructions before you can do the actual activity for most of them. So, I had to call them back, read the instructions to them, then it was actually a cool thing to do. I have two kids ages 4 & 6. They just wanted to physically do everything without really knowing what they were supposed to be learning about and I tried to explain few things from science prospective. So, adults, keep up and get engaged along with them so they know how to complete the activities and maybe learn something from them.
    they have indoor water activity a lot of other play activities including slides and play areas. The aquatic animal exhibit is also awesome. A mesmerizing view of the lake Champlain from this place is so great that you can’t compare with anything else. If you visit this place in the evening he can probably get a chance to take the sunset pictures from upstairs which is breathtaking. There’s a cafe and gift shop. So much to do and see, could be an all day thing if you want to get your money’s worth.
    if we visit Vermont anytime in filter, this is gonna be our first thing to do for the kids and for ourselves.

    Stopped in to pass some time before our flight. This is a great business to bring kids big and small. Lots of fun exhibits. They have short movies showing often, interactive experiences from natural ecosystems to IT. Their rotating exhibit was Dragons and Unicorns when we went. Very cool place and I highly recommend it.

    Enjoyable kids museum even for adults. I recommend looking at the the museum pass that covers other science museums as well. The live animal exhibits are great, and the interactive science displays are interesting, informative, and well made.

    The whole museum doesn’t take too long, so its a good stop between activities in Burlington.

    Good place to go while in Burlington. This place isn’t an aquarium. It’s a children’s museum with a water theme. There’s a lot of turtles and some fishes. We liked the 3D show and the demo/class teaching us about rat snakes. The children love the play areas where there are grocery store, cafe, water tables, boats. The grownups enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and enjoying views of the lake. And the soft serve ice cream outside was so good, try the orange flavor! Overall it was a great time for the children and lots of hands on learning to take advantage of.

    My husband and I had an awesome time bringing our son for the first time! I can’t wait for him to be a little older to really enjoy everything they have to offer. They have exhibits of local wildlife and so many interactive science activities

    I had a blast time with my friend going bowling here! It’s my first time going bowling since October 2018; I still have some of experience in myself (including bowling tricks) it’s so fun to get yourself back into track to go join bowling league (I might be doing that in my state [California]). This place is definitely recommended for people who wanted to have fun going bowling and drinking beer (more seriously if you are bowling league!) ?❤️

    Lost track of time there. So fun and so much variety. Felt like a kid again. There’s something there for everyone. Many family’s and couples of all ages. The Staff are very pleasant & helpful. And they also seem to enjoy being there. I can’t say enough about this place. Can’t wait to go back,
    Highly Recommended checking them out if you haven’t already had a chance. Thanks again Spare Time

    Great destination place! Bowling, arcade, and laser tag…you can really spend a full evening there. Prices are good and the staff are great. And I hear they’re adding onto the arcade and adding escape rooms as well…super pumped! Love this place.

    Hands down the worst time I’ve ever had the staff was rude we showed up at 4:00 was told an hour and a half so we went to the bar and had some dinner and a couple drinks was eight people then we went back up the hour half was up and they told me another hour to two hours so we decided to stay there and continue playing in the arcade which was another $300 between all eight of us on top of the 500 in food then I had gone back up about an hour and a half later and was told another hour so I asked for the manager into the girls decided to give me attitude so therefore I asked again I got the manager we had discuss it calmly that I would get into a game 15 minutes so then I waited another 25 minutes to be paged to the front desk to be told we were being asked to leave after spending almost $1,000 on top of the $100 it cost me to cross the ferry to go from New York to Colchester needless to say I will be calling the manager or whoever corporate is because I feel discriminated at the way I was treated we had gone there a week prior had no problems and had a great time so we invited more of my friends and this is what happens we were there at 4:00 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. well other people were just walking in and getting in right away

    The lane was in bad shape. Staff said it hadn’t been oiled for days because it wasn’t used for league play.

    For $40/hr I expected a better experience. That’s insanely pricey for bowling so it’s a deal breaker not to have at least a somewhat decent experience. Could care less about the fancy HDTVs with my score, just wanted to bowl. Didn’t expect to be bowling on a chalkboard.

    The area desperately needs some competition.

    Fun place for kids. They get tired out VERY quickly. The safety video and what actually goes on are very different. It’s like a free-for-all in there with no staff supervision or enforcement. The only staff seemed to be at the front desk. Seemed clean but recycling bin was overflowing. Many of the vending machines and arcade games were broken or the card swiper didn’t work, so bring lots of one dollar bills. I think they need more benches for parents/spectators as many people were sitting on the floor. Overall though the kids loved it and can’t wait to come back.

    One of the few indoor places left where kids (and adults!) can run and jump wild and free, without worrying about a million and a half rules, while getting truly creative with using their bodies and athleticism.

    Everyone watches out for each other, is respectful and responsible every time I’ve been, so it’s not chaos either. It’s extra entertaining with the wide variety of things to jump on, climb on and swing on! They offer healthy beverages for sale which I truly appreciate, since most places just offer junk food (they do have that as well with the candy and vending machines). Get Air really gets it right. I’ve decided to buy an annual pass.

    Fun place for kids and adults but it is not clean or well kept, by any means. Also, I’m surprised that no one mentioned anything about the exhaust vent/fan that was about to fall through the ceiling in these reviews. The entire vent/fan system was shaking the ceiling panel – it looked like it had been repaired many times but was about to break free. Parents were telling their children not to stand underneath it. I’ve contacted customer service but this needs to be addressed asap before someone gets seriously injured.

    Wonderful, safe way to tire out the kiddos on a rainy day.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Zachary Kent (3 months ago)
    We attended a birthday party for a 6yo. As long as a parent is next to the kids jumping….its great.
    Except the back 1/4 lights were broken so that part was in the dark, it was still open, but we avoided it.

    It’s a nice facility. Very small compared to other inclusive indoor water parks like Kalahari or Great Wolf Lodge but the rides are smooth and the lifeguards adhere to rules. If you’re local I recommend a trip but, for this itself, it’s probably not worth the cost for offered amenities.

    We had fun, I had 3 teenage boys with me. The day we went they were only open 4pm-8pm, but they were running a buy one get one free sale so that helped with the lack of hours.

    We ate there first, the food was very good.

    Then we went and did the waterside for about an hour and a half, after we went to the arcade for about 30 minutes, then headed back to the waterlslides, water basketball and rock wall pool.

    I personally planned my entire evening around the lazy river – I had never planned on leaving it, May for the hot tub every once in a while. But did that happen, no it did not why you ask be cause and also the whole reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the lazy river (or as they call it “adventure river”) was closed for the season! It’s an indoor water park – aren’t all the seasons in season.

    ✭✭✭✭ By D. Roy (5 months ago)
    Great place, never had to wait to long for any of the slides. Lazy river is only open Friday and Saturday. Kids had a blast. Parents can get a drink and sit overlooking the park. Would definitely go back.

    This place is a great way to escape for a weekend and have fun with your kids. We were there with two other families for a long-weekend, and we went to the water park on both Saturday and Sunday, and my kids loved it so much I had to claw them out of there kicking and screaming… While it doesn’t have as many slides and water attractions as the Bora park in Village Valcartier in Quebec city, this indoor water park does have most of the major ones (flowrider, double tube slides, single tube slides, lazy river, solo slides, and the “drop under your feet” knock your socks off rocket slide) and enough variety to keep you and your kids entertained for a day if not two. The snackbar on the other side of the bridge makes having lunch pretty convenient, with sub USD$10 chicken-finger+fires which are popular with the kids. I also appreciated the fact that they were projecting the World Cup 2022 games on the big screen above the Flowrider.

    It’s only partially open due to staffing shortages (the lazy river is closed until further notice), the indoor hot tub is lukewarm, and one of the waterslides broke right before my partner went to use it. Staff there are less than friendly too. You couldn’t go in one of the pools but it wasn’t blocked off. You just had one of the kids blowing his whistle at people and waving them away without explaining anything to anyone.

    Prices need to be decreased if you’re not going to staff it and have half the park closed.
