FANTASTIC FANTASY ?? This is a Dream Come True! We celebrated my son's birthday this past weekend and for the first time the only "stress" I had, was not to stress about anything. Mark and his wonderful staff did it all!! THANK YOU!!

We all had a memorable time and what a WONDERFUL idea you brought to life for the little ones.

We had our daughter's 2nd birthday at Fantasy Kingdom and were very pleased. The staff was very attentive, friendly and on point. When we arrived everything was picture perfect. They assisted us in every aspect. It was a stress free experience. Thank you for all your hard work! My daughter had an awesome time and we will be back!

We went to Fantasy Kingdom for the first time this past Friday (1/15/10). I was very impressed with the attentive staff and the adorable play area for the children. My son (1 yr.) had a great time in the large, enclosed play area for the infants. The 4 yr. old boy I nanny for had a wonderful time playing in the miniature village with his friends. It was clean, inviting, and a great experience. The only reason I could not give it five stars was the fact that there was only ONE changing table for the entire facility that caters to a diaper-aged population. I waited in line to change a diaper for almost 20 minutes!

We have been coming to Fantasy Kingdom for over 3 years now. We had my son's 2nd b-day party there and could not have been happier with the staff as well as the party in general. My kids are 4 and 2.5 and I wasn't sure if my 4 year old would still enjoy it as much as he used to (we have been doing school and home stuff). When we got there, both boys were having the time of their lives. Running all over the place. Going up and down the slides, playing with the train sets, playing in the "fire station", etc. I noticed quite a few new toys and really did not see any run down things that others have commented on. It has been a good staple in our household, especially during the cold long days of winter!! I am looking forward to our next outing there.

Totally not impressed. The place was filthy. There was no one around to pick up the toys, most of which seemed very worn out. The carpeting was gross and I could swear smelled like pee. I'd rather pay a few dollars more and go somewhere CLEAN.

Fantasy Kingdom came to my rescue. I was stuck with dad duty with nieces and nephews and was not about to turn my condo into a playground...On my sister's suggestion, I packed them into the Outback for a 2 hour escape to Fantasy Kingdom. The indoor parking was a huge plus, and the place was clean, well lit and friendly. The kids loved the freedom to choose play areas, and there's plenty of room for them to explore. Staff is attentive, and they even sanitize the toys on a schedule, which set my mind at ease. A no-brainer, and a great way to save your place from getting trashed. It looks like I'll be headed back, this week. It's nice to have a place to escape to during the long Holiday break.

Fantasy Kingdom, in an old warehouse just south of the new Whole Foods. Fantasy Kingdom has two large structures with many different themes with costumes and toys for each theme. They also have two train tables and a toddler area for kids under two. In the center of the main area is a large open area for the kids to run around. Parking on the street can be a challenge but you can always park inside a heated garage for five dollars. When you first walk in, you are greeted by one of the owners while you are getting situated with the kids. There is a great eating area. You can bring in your own food and beverages and you can use there refrigerator to store you food. They also have paper plates, napkins and highchairs for your convenience. They have different fees from $12 daily pass, punch cards, and more. The staff is friendly and the facility is very clean. The best part is that you don??t have to leave after a 1 hours, you pay and you can stay as long as you would like. You can come in the morning, leave and come back the same day for no additional charge. Thanks Fantasy Kingdom, the Morgan??s

My children and I have had positive experiences at Fantasy Kingdom. The owners are personable and attentive. Though it can get busy in the mornings, we perfer afternoons instead. We've been going for about a year now, and my kids still have a great time. We appreciate everything you do, Fantasy Kingdom!

Once upon a time Fantasy Kingdom was the only place you could take a small child to play indoors. Other places have popped up around the city and I would like to think that Fantasy Kingdom would keep up with their competitors. Unfortunately, in comparison, Fantasy Kingdom is dark, dirty, and has hours that don't really work for me any longer. When I mentioned that I bought a punch card from a competitor they actually got mad at me for going some place else. On our most recent trip there last week I realized that the place smelled of urine and that my 2 kids were not enjoying themselves. There was no staff on the floor like the other places. The costumes smelled like they had not been washed, the toys that required batteries were out, and many other toys were worn/broken. The real clincher for me was the fact that when I left, my once-white socks were almost black from the dirty carpeting.

Sadly, we won't be going back there.

You cannot beat this place for birthday parties. Over the past 2.5 years I've been to three Fantasy Kingdom parties, one of which was for my daughter. They offer a lot of extras in case you need help with balloons, goodie bags, or entertainment like a face painter, and I could not believe it but Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" was actually at the party we went to last week.

From the perspective of when I was the "hostess", let me tell you the stuff that went the smoothest was the stuff that they handled. Just try to make your own goodie bags that will be cool for different genders, etc. The whole party ran like a fun-loving and upbeat Swiss clock. There was a smoothness about the timing of activities and an anticipation of guest needs that was undeniable.

I definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a memorable birthday party absent of chaos.

It was a nice place for kids, but now the toys are dirty and broken. They need to use some of the expensive admission price to replace and clean their toys.

This place is such a welcome diversion! It's like an indoor park with a whole bunch of totally safe activities for kids. There are options for physical play (big open area for running around, giant climbing castle) and also make-believe (cute costumes and a mini town). There is a separate section for Under 2, which is good because when it's crowded, the bigger kids can get a little rough for the baby/toddler set. Make sure you wear socks since no shoes are allowed in the play area!

My kids enjoy playing at the Fantasy Kingdom. The have a huge castle where they can pretend to be knights and pricesses. The also have a police station, a fire stations, a market and even a pink Tudor house where they can let their imaginations soar. Dress-up clothes and props are available in each area so they can pretend to be policemen or firemen. They have an admission charge for each child which can be a bit expensive if you have a lot of kids.

PROS: Lots of pretend play
CONS: Admission price a bit high

So much fun, the place makes you wish you were a kid again. I love to bring the kids here whenever I can. I find a place like this is better than Navy Pier especially for the younger kids. More social interaction. Get good directions, though. I drove around and around the first time I came. I was expecting the outside to look different.

PROS:
CONS: Not open 24/7.

Fantasy Kingdom is a great idea - something fun for a rainy day, and a place to have birthday parties. They also have attached, garage parking for free which is a plus. On the down side, it's a bit small of space inside with not a ton of different things for older kids. Also, be prepared everyone (adults and kids) need to have socks or you have to buy them to go in.

I took my nephews here to burn off some of their large amounts of energy. It was money and time well spent. The palce is huge and has lots of toys, rides and play equipement for all children . My nephews didnt know where to start first, so they decided to run around in the running area and play tag. The admission prices were good value considering the boys and I were there for a good 4 hours playing. Parking is easily acessible. I would not recommend however going there on a busy weekend as it can get very overcrowded.

PROS: Lots of things children can do
CONS: Can get too over crowded.

Fantasy Kingdom is a great place to take toddlers on a rainy or wintry day, or when it's super hot outside! Bring your lunch/snacks as there is a charming eating area. Socks also required, but can be purchased on site. There are themed rooms such as a grocery store, fire & police stations, fairy princess dressing room w/dolls & strollers. There is a seperate play space for infants/crawlers. You & your child will have a wonderful time here in this clean, friendly, fun environment. Free indoor parking available.

Once you're able to find Fantasy Kingdom, tucked away in a warehouse in what seems like an unlikely (though totally safe) area to have a children's play place, you'll find a big, open, clean, vibrant and exciting place for your young one to play. First things first, this place has no shortage of free, totally convenient indoor parking immediately adjacent to the property. You're greeted by a reception desk and an area to place your belongings - shoes off for everyone. They have a great separate eating area, so when you're little one needs a snack or lunch, little tables, little chairs, and even highchairs await. The main play area affords kids lots of running space, and they jam-pack the place with ride-on toys, slides, a brio train table, tons of toys, and more. There are little themed areas, such as a police station, fire station, grocery store - each with appropriately-themed toys for pretend-play. They have various payment options, including a one-day pass for around $12 - which is great if you just want to pop in now and then and not commit to a long contract. I would say it's best for boys and girls up to age 4.

PROS: clean, attractive space, fun, worthwhile
CONS: can seem a little crowded at times
