When we were there we were able to interact with many characters (Spiderman, Dr. Doom, Oliveoil, Popeye, Cat in the Hat, Beetle Bailey). We got wonderful photos and really had a good time. The food was good and reasonably priced. The character we enjoyed most was a gypsy fortune teller who flirted with our adolescent boys. It was hilarious. She spent quite a bit of time at our table, did both of the boys' fortunes. Spiderman was also very accomodating. You should have lunch here if you have time.
I think the boys will enjoy it. Especially if the gypsy fortune teller is there. Also, the characters are differenct from the Disney characters, who are mostly geared towards very young children.
