I'm Mom to two small boys and we often visit kids attractions, including zoos, theme parks and children's museums. We also visit lots of attractions that aren't just for kids including historic houses and landscaped gardens.
In this article I'll share some of the things that we love to find at kids attractions and also things we don't like so much. Hopefully this will be useful to anyone that runs or plans to open a kids attraction. We often read reviews of kids attractions that say they were rubbish and not worth the money as it only took 30 minutes to see everything.
Often these places actually have lots to offer, but unfortunately they didn't manage to engage their visitors. Yes, parents should definitely make an effort to capture their kids' imaginations and get the most from the attraction, but it's very much appreciated if we get a bit of help with this! And simple things that are inexpensive to provide can make all the difference.
