“Are we still in Toledo?” exclaimed my youngest as we made our way through One Seagate tunnel to our destination. A LONG awaited destination, a destination 2 years in the making! So was it worth it? Was that LONG wait worth it? YESSS!!
OMG! As we entered the Key Discovery Theater I was legit thinking the same thing, are we still in Toledo? Maybe my youngest was right, maybe that tunnel took us to another city? Talk about an epic experience! We watched an IMAX Original 3D film on a 58-foot wide, 4K screen, in Toledo. Oh, and there’s concessions!
We watched Superpower Dogs, an awesome educational feature on the bravery and lifesaving skills of dogs. It was one we all enjoyed, ages 2+. And the best part, it only cost $4.50 for members (kids 2 and under are free) and it’s $6.50 for all non-members.
It was so much fun the kids asked if we can go back today and see the other film, Hidden Pacific. At this point they’re not certain how often the films will be on rotation but I’m hopeful they will have a variety of films for the summer.
And then after the film we went home, well, we didn’t leave, we explored Imagination Station. And for this momma who spent most of her time here when her kiddos were little, walking through the Little Kids Space felt like home, a warm hug, an official welcome back!
And of course we had to hit up some of the classics while we were there…
Huge shoutout to all the employees at Imagination Station for making our welcome back so amazing. Everything was extremely clean, safe, and most importantly thank you for bringing back the educational fun. Kids need Imagination Station now more than ever, they need to be reminded that science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are FUN!!
