Love Find a Bathroom and Car Option

This option has been a life saver for our family. The park is amazing and easy to drift away from the car. This option allowed us to find our car and public bathrooms.

Out of date, messy

Too messy. If you want to see what exhibits are on, you click on the museum’s icon and go to a page about that museum. (If you tap the “Exhibits” button there you get sent back to the app’s home page.) Then you need to go to each museum’s website for current exhibit info. Food: out of place and out of date. You can’t eat at Alfred’s, it’s in the Zoo. And Tobey’s is far away in the golf course. And there’s a new place in the NAT. And you missed the place in the Fleet Science Center.

The Events section seems to be the best bet for current special exhibits - if it’s up to date… It shows opening dates only, so some may be closed already.

The narration part of the trails section is neat. It only plays when the phone is held by your ear. Move the phone away and it stops. Walk to the next location, put the phone up to your ear and it picks up where it left off.
