I liked Playfair. The only reason I would say no is that it was way over crowded. They said they were only selling a certain number of tickets which was too many to fully enjoy the events. Since it was only 4 hours long. You had to spend your time waiting in line to see the characters and didn't even have time to wait in the lines for the other cool events if you wanted to see the characters. They really didn't have a good system in place for the lines for the events. They were just kind of all over the place. We started waiting in line to see Paw Patrol which started at 6:30 at 5:00 just to make sure that we were able to see them because they were cutting the line after you waited to see them.

Way too crowded. Long lines everywhere. Wanted to see Thomas & Friends performance - impossible, adults piling up with kids so that other kids can't really see anything. TTPM corner advertised $10 gift card for loading their mobile app - did not happen. Plus parking around the corner charged us $60. $15 parking coupon only worked for garages 8 blocks away which is a torture to walk with small kids in the freezing weather. Total waste of money.

I was really disappointed with play Fair. It was overly crowed and lines for everything were very long. Little ones get inpatient. The way play Fair was advertised seemed to be like an actual fair , actual Rides!! I was very disappointed!

It was an overly crowded venue with ridicously long lines for all of the "main attractions" that we didn't even get to do. If I had payed full price, I would have been even more disappointed. Did I really have to pay $75.00 to have my kids do some coloring and cry that they didn't get any Shopkins during the fashion show, because there were greedy parents who took more than one for their kids?! I will definitely skip this next year. There are better things I can do with my time and money.

We had a great time, fun for the whole family. Some of the line's were long but moved quickly. Staff polite and knowledgeable. I wish they had more for teens.

Bring your own snacks! A hotdog in a bun and a small bag of popcorn cost $5 each!
