The Pavilion has regular performances by the Houston Symphony Orchestra and it’s fantastic. My husband and I went for date night, but it definitely was great for kids. Bring a picnic and sit on the hill. Wonderful music and the mezzanine and grass seats are free on these nights.

This has to be our biggest entertainment let down ever. The games are over priced and many take your money and don't deliver the game. For example, the ice ball (aka skee ball) only dispensed 1 ball. The game to pitch balls at the clown...MoreHey mccarthyde, I’m very sorry to hear about your experience. I'd love to learn more about your visit at our Shenandoah location!

This place is an awesome place to visit if you like plants and gardens. They have a diverse population of plants and the walking paths are great. You can spend a lot of time here or just a short while, all of it enjoyable. The ponds and water bodies as well as the walking courses are a great place to unwind and enjoy nature!

This was the destination for our long weekend to The Woodlands, TX.

It was easy making reservations via their website. You can do all of the waivers on line to save time at the front desk. Check in was easy.

As we were walking in, my son and I both admitted we were a bit nervous. We've never done anything like this before and we had a fear of the unknown. If you have these natural feelings, they will soon vanish once you see the place.

We were brought into a room to watch a video. Very detailed explanation about hand signals.

Then it was time to suit up. You are given a small locker and everything, I mean everything, has to come off: watch, wallet, keys, wedding ring, etc....Nothing that can get caught on the netting.

First on is the big, baggy suit. Then goggles, eye protection, ear plugs and lastly the helmet. Safety first.

Once your group is ready, you walk, single file into the waiting area. Once in there, your instructor will take you, one by one, and help you "fly." Yes, it is so exciting. We paid for 2 flights. Each flight lasts one minute. Many pix and video are taken which you can purchase later.

The first flight was difficult. I had a problem getting my legs straight. The wind blowing up is very, very strong. But the second flight was much better. My legs were straight and I had much better posture. Looking at the video, I was able to "fly" almost the full minute. The instructor then took me on a "ride" and we went up a few feet, no more than 15, and back down again, spinning all the time. All I could do was laugh my head off! It was so fun. Not like the sensation you get from an amusement park ride; much smoother and you don't get that tickle in your stomach.

Yes, the prep and the wait are time consuming but it is all part of the experience. Our flight instructor then gave us a show with all of his flight skills. Amazing what he was able to do.

Would definitely again when we're in the area.

This is hit or miss so it is worth checking their calendar. The staff is amazing but if you go when there are daycares visiting it's packed with older children.

On quiet days it's a lot of fun for a toddler. There's a decent size fish tank to explore and lots of neat toys.

The events are super educational and are done with the children in mind. Lots of colors and sounds.

Worth checking out.

I took my father for his 81st birthday, along with my elementary-school-age daughters, and all three generations had a great time! The park is lovingly maintained and the animals are healthy and used to being around people. There's quite a variety of animals and an opportunity during the visit to duck into air condition - which is quite a plus on a warm day. The staff are very attentive and hospitable - allowing us to go at our own pace. They even provided my dad with a chocolate chip birthday cookie! My children did not want to leave and now want to go back! PS: Make sure to interact with the otters. They are beyond darling.

Reviewed By amarinesmom226 - Spring, Texas

My husband and I have been to several plays at the Crighton and we always enjoy it. The theatre itself is like stepping back in time. The smaller size makes for a more intimate feel and in my eyes, enhances the overall experience. We're going to see Ricky Skaggs there next month. This will be our first concert at the Crighton and we're truly looking forward to it.

GenuWine Tasting Room

Reviewed By Matthew A - Conroe, Texas

We saw that this place offered a great wine selection and craft beers so we decided to give it a try, we were highly impressed! There was a large wine selection (although we didn't have any). The beers on tap were Lone Pint (Magnolia) and B-52 (Conroe), they also had a nice selection of bottled craft beers. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The food was awesome! My wife had the gluttonous grilled cheese and I had one of their pizzas, the pizza is sauceless but still super satisfying. We had a blueberry Meyer lemon cheesecake which was Devine. We will defiantly stop by here again.

Our family of 4 found ourselves trying to escape without the benefit of having someone who had done this before. We weren't sure what to expect. (The groups usually consist of up to 10 individuals.) We got off to a slow start but luckily got help by the staff to keep us motivated to hang on there. Fun time. Look for a Groupon coupon. We paid full price and it was money well spent.
