The children's area was smaller than I expected, and somewhat dangerous. The majority of the fountains in the children's area shoot straight up. That's all well and good unless you are 2 1/2 feet tall and keep chasing the water towards the ground when it disappears, and a little slow to recognize that that never ends well. The boys kept getting a face full every time the fountains disappeared and reappeared. To their credit after wiping the water out of their eyes they went on like nothing ever happened despite being practically drowned by the mini geysers on a regular basis.
