Snapology Discovery Center in Lancaster is a place where children can have learning experiences through interactive play. Snapology instructors use STEM/STEAM learning concepts and interconnecting blocks, robots, virtual reality and more, to give your child an active play experience. Teamwork and social skills are also important at Snapology, as children work together to build, learn, and grow.
The Center offers a myriad of programs to fit your child’s age, interest, and availability. From preschool programs, to robotics and video game programming for older children, there is something for everyone. Open play allows the children to explore and find where their interest lies. More specific themed classes and camps give kids the skills to take their building and creating to the next level.

Tips for Visiting Snapology Discovery Center
- Google Maps is mistaking the location of Snapology as being on the Fruitville Pike end of Granite Run Drive. It’s actually close to Manheim Pike in the shopping center with Dream Dinners, Cinnaholic, and Isaac’s Restaurant.
- Open play costs the same whether you “drop-off” your child or stay and play with them. Max play time is 3 hours, so arrive early enough during the open play session to take advantage of all three hours.
- There’s a family discount! Pay for the first child, and there’s a discount on admission fee for additional children.
- Parent’s Night Out classes are also available, which include dinner and activities for your child.
- Keep in mind all teachers at Snapology have clearances and many are school teachers.
- Memberships are available and include unlimited creative play visits during your membership period.
