What people are saying about Connecticut

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

The staff were very knowledgeable and engaging when performing demonstrations or managing activities. Our kids had a fabulous time exploring and doing the activities!! (Ages 9 and 11). They even sat still to listen to demonstrations! There was a great mix of open exploration time and events. It was a nice, non-stress vacation day. Only comment I would make is that the drinks (water and soda) were way overpriced at the tavern-$5 each! Make sure you bring plenty of water, especially on hot days, to avoid that cost.

The staff was very kind and very professional. After the ride one of the staff members saw me in a shop, she remembered me and asked how my ride was. I was impressed with that. Overall from beginning to end it was a great experience.

The staff were so kind and helpful, knowledgeable! It was a delight to learn about it all! My only complaint is ME not having lots of time to really savor the wonderful story!

We went during a heat wave so it was not always pleasant to go into the shops in the village. It was very interesting and the staff are very knowledgeable. .

Incredible!!! The view from the top was stunning. You really do “fly” down to the bottom. Def an experience for the books!
