Awesome park!

Flag review

LOVE Sea World! Lots of shows to take in, so look at the schedules first to make sure you get to them. My 8yr old was much more able to sit and take them in than my 5yr old. He was excited for shamu and the second show, but after a while, he wanted to play, not sit. there is a great penguin exhibit, too. Best part for both kids was the sprayground. Lots of things to climb on and get wet on.

Tips for Families

Bring a change of clothes or bathing suit, even if you aren't going into the main water park. The spray ground is outside of the water park and will be hard to resist. There are a few places to eat, but lines are long andseating is scarce. Best bet is to bring your own, or at least snacks to get you through, so you don't need a full lunch. If you are military, be sure to sign up online first - you can get in free if you do that!

Watch the weather - could be unpleasant if weather is not right.

Flag review

We have visited Dinosaur World twice, both with mixed results. You enter through the large gift shop, where you get your tickets. Tons of dinosaur toys, figures, stuffed animals, books, etc. Be prepared for the whining to start as soon as you walk in. The main attraction is the walking trail that showcases more dinosaurs than I ever knew there were. They are nicely done, colorful, have signs with information on the type, and several good spots for pictures. There is also a toddler playground and a dino-dig, allowing kids to dig in the sand for shark teeth, gems, and other treasures, which they get to keep. Nicely done, but we do think it is a bit overpriced.

Tips for Families

Watch the weather. The trail has you out in the sun, and if it's a warm day, or if it's been a long day, the kids will be done about half way through. Be sure to have lunch first - will keep the energy up longer. Hammond's BBQ in town is a great family-friendly place.

Kids loved it!

Flag review

We have visited Fossil Rim several times, and the kids always enjoy it. It's a drive-thru wild animal park that allows visitors to feed the animals: several varieties of deer, zebras, giraffes, ostriches. There is a lunch spot half way through where you can grab a bite to eat, picnic with your own lunch, and visit the petting zoo.

Tips for Families

We let the kids ride in front with us as we drive through. Pace is slow enough that it's safe for them not to be buckled. Makes it easier to feed the animals together, control the windows as needed, control the food as needed.
