  1. Sunshine Play & Learn is another great indoor play place with a membership card that you buy preloaded, and it doesn’t expire so you can use your six visits whenever you want throughout the year!

  2. Adventure Landing’s customer service is non-existent. They don’t answer their phones. They ignore emails. They ignore their Facebook messages. We had a season pass last year but we won’t renew it. I wish they cared more about connecting with their customers. We also have a membership to Tree Hill and to the Cummer and cannot say enough GREAT things about them! Highly recommend!
