We had heard great things about the Space Foundation but had never had a chance to get there. We decided to go out on a limb and have our son's birthday party there and we were blown away! We were impressed by the staff, the facility and everything that the kids could do! We will certainly recommend them to everyone and we'll be back! Thank you!
