Not for young kids, I brought my two young children for some bug ice cream and to see some aliens etc. The ice cream was no longer available, although they had big bug cookies. Most of the things that I brought my kids to see, turned out to involve adult themes as there was a sign with a warning. I purchased a couple of fun items, but before I left I couldn't help but notice the smell of marijuana smoke inside the store.
