Adventure City Theme Park Review & Ticket Giveaway!


Stacie Avalos & Griselda Gray Romero!

Congrats on winning a Family 4-pack of tickets to Adventure City, please email me at within 48 hours to claim your prize :)


Have you ever felt like all the Theme Parks are aimed at pleasing the older crowds? I frequently felt this frustration when visiting all the Southern California Amusement Parks with my young son. Sure there are a handful of ‘Kiddie Rides’ at most theme parks but after getting on the few rides that your child is tall enough to ride, you wonder what to do the rest of the day…

If you have ever felt that way, then I am pleased to share with you a wonderful little place in Anaheim, CA called Adventure City! I had the pleasure of being asked to review this Theme Park whose motto is “The Little Theme Park that’s BIG on Family Fun!” and I must agree it was a ton of fun! Best of all admission is only $14.95 and parking is FREE!

My son is 3 years old and 38 inches tall and he was able to ride every ride there! The rides range from simple kid-powered trains called the Crank N’ Roll to a really exciting Rollercoaster and even a ride that made my tummy drop (in a good way 😉 ) called Drop Zone.

In addition to the fun rides the park offers Shows, Arcade Games, Rock Wall, Thomas the Train Play Area and my son’s favorite – the Petting Zoo where you can actually feed the friendly goats. While these activities do cost extra (excluding the Shows & Thomas Play Area) it was a very small fee to feed the animals and simply petting them is Free :)

Some other great ‘extras’ offered at the park is definitley an adult favorite – Starbucks coffee! I saw parents everywhere with smiles on their faces and I couldn’t tell if it was due to the joy of watching their children have fun or simply from being able to enjoy a fresh cup of Starbucks coffee at a Theme Park. Food is not allowed to be brought in to the park, so be aware that if you plan an entire day trip you will have to pay for meals. Not to worry, they offer a restaurant with affordable food. My family of 3 ate lunch for under $20, which at an Amusement Park is unheard of! They also had a snack cart with a variety of treats priced around $1.50.

I highly recommend Adventure City for families with children under 10, older kids may think that its a tad childish since its geared towards smaller sized humans 😉
