We learned tons of amazing facts about animals (both kids have been reading books like crazy and having me look up info on the internet about animals since then.) When I was young, they pretty much only had animals and a few kiddie rides, but now even the kiddie rides have gotten fancy! There's at least 3 large areas of kid rides, including roller coasters. For the first time ever, Little Miss was able to ride a coaster! She was thrilled and has been strutting her stuff like a big girl.
Just a small sampling of what we saw:
A Camel wandering through the park
Little Miss staring at the Shark Exhibit
We saw just how far an elephant's trunk stretches
...and how trusting her trainer is
and Bok Boy got to feed her a banana!
We saw Orcas jumping
...and tigers diving,
and drinking a bottle!
and gorgeous butterflies fluttering.
Next time you're heading to an amusement park, see if you can find one that has interesting and educational things! We all love the rides, but animals can teach us so much about the world. This way you can do both in one day (and give your stomach a break in between roller coaster rides!)
What's your favorite theme/amusement park and why?
