Time to pause the game controllers and get the kids out to play! Even though the summer is winding down, there is still plenty of time to plan getaways the whole family will enjoy. Whether you like amusement park thrills or outdoor adventures, our top 4 spots for Kid Fun will help get you started on your next holiday.
- Canada’s Wonderland, Vaughan – Thrill seekers of all ages love Canada’s largest theme park. Little ones can hang out in KidZville or ride the Taxi Jam, designed as a toddler’s first coaster. On wilder rides like Behemoth and the new WindSeeker, which stretches up to 91 m high, teens can test their fear factor. Plus, everyone will love cooling off at Splash Works, an 8 hectare waterpark.
- Long Point Eco-Adventures,Turkey Point – For a completely different adrenaline rush, take a 2.5 hour canopy tour – high above the forest floor – that includes eight zip lines, two suspension sky-bridges and a 12m rappel. The tour is led by two experienced and informative guides.
- Storybook Gardens, London – Enter through the castle where a make-believe world fires up your imagination. Kids will enjoy fun rides, entertainment and face painting, plus Slippery’s splash area for cooling down. A kid fave is the Enchanted Forest, a safe place for animals who are injured and can’t survive in the wild.
- Wasaga Beach – The longest freshwater beach in the world, Wasaga is sandcastle heaven for the little ones! Shallow waters and sandbars make it kid-friendly too. Picnic tables and change facilities cater to families, plus bigger kids will like the nearby Wasaga 500 Go-Karts.For more Family Fun getaways visit us online at ontariotravel.net.
