It is in the high school. Look for signs. It was very neat with the idea that high schoolers created it. There wasn't much information about how it was created, how it works, how long it takes them to do each sign, just warnings about how much the machine cost and to keep your kids from getting up and not to leave garbage because she wasn't out maid. It was awesome for my 9, 7, and 4 year old, but we can say we've done it and can mark it off our list.

The show was good, as expected. The staff was friendly and kind. Deducted 1 star because it wasn't clearly marked exactly where the entrance was and we ended up driving around for 10 minutes in the pouring rain in the dark trying to avoid a long walk. (fwiw, between the schools is a 2nd floor walkway that connects them. If you go, park as close to the front of that as possible. The entrance is in a recessed area.)
