Beneath a tangle of ivy and vines, a giant python slithers past a giraffe and his rhinoceros chum. As youngsters rush toward the clutter of creatures, what sounds like a scene from the jungle transforms into a day of indoor amusement at Go Bananas. In addition to the miniature python-themed roller coaster, tykes defy gravity in the bounce castle, collide into other bumper-car drivers, and calculate friction coefficients while pummeling down the slide. After scaling the multilevel climbing structure and navigating its tunnels and tubes, kids can return to terra firma to dispense tokens into the arcade's abundant machines, which include classics such as Centipede, skee-ball, and air hockey and newer games such as Big Bass Wheel and Deal or No Deal. At the snack bar below a mock thatched roof, staffers reenergize guests with treats such as pizza and ice cream before they revisit rides with their parents, who can ride along for free.

Lambs Farm has since relocated and expanded into a 70-acre campus, which has a variety of residential and vocational programs that continue to help those in need. Nearly 250 individuals take part in the services, including group homes and individual apartments, access to employment opportunities and a number of recreational services, such as camping and hobby clubs.

Without trips to museums, the most exciting thing to happen to most families would be the periodic elections to determine who gets to be Dad that week. Shake things up with this voucher. A giant tree spreads its limbs across a softly lit room as soothing forest sounds play. On a child-size stage, kids manipulate controls to flick theater lights on and off. In an art studio stocked with supplies, budding artists make creative messes. This is all taking place in Wonder Works' 6,400-square-foot space. Children aged 8 and younger explore six hands-on exhibits that help them express their creativity and develop mental and social skills. Wonder Works is able to cater to children with special needs. The children's museum also hosts school field trips, and a variety of special activities and events including a children's music concert series, African American History Month, and the paleontology-centric Dino Works. In addition, an outdoor organic garden onsite gives kids an opportunity to marvel in the great outdoors without having to pay tolls to riddle-spouting trolls. Admission grants you access to six experience zones: an art studio, a theater stage, a produce-harvesting area, a forest-exploration area, a reading castle, and a creative construction room. Kids can also frolic in an outdoor organic garden that opens for seasonal exploration.
