This place shut down over a year ago, August '07 I believe. It was great for ages 4-10. They charged $6 a head. I have no idea where or how they failed. The building is still for sale with no takers, and at $250k I don't forsee anything moving in soon. I wish they'd revamp the concept, maybe include daycare to make up any deficit!

They had a reading loft filled with books, a toddler pen, a play gym for older kids, video games, a computer lab, a giant maze, and vaguely educational toys involving magnets, giant lincoln logs, and a big chessboard.

I got bored pretty quickly, but hey- I'm not a kid anymore. My daughter was always bugging me to take her here, and the parking lot was usually full.

If I were going to revamp this business, I would include more physical play areas, games led by staff, and special activity days.

I think the idea of Minds in Motion is great, especially here where winter days are rainy. The basics of MiM are good, but they need more. It's kind of a cross between McDonalds PlayPlace and Chuck E. Cheese. I think the whole game area really distracts from the educational aspect of the place. I guess they need things for older kids to do. The discovery area with the play houses, giant chess, magnets, etc is great. They should expand on this. They have lots of area that they can use to grow. I think more climbing and more educational things, would make it a ton better. Food prices are outrageous. Party rooms are convenient, though.

PROS: Great for rainy day
CONS: Not much variety
