Without too much more gushing, here are the Top 5 rides as agreed upon by my favorite 5:
Fievel's Play Land
Misting fans greet parents as they settle in to watch their children explore this giant play land. Our kids rode Fievel's water slide over and over and over...
This was another ride our kids asked to repeat x3 (at least!). The vehicle for this adventure is an old fashioned bicycle that flies through several familiar scenes from E.T. and ends with an "It's a Small World" vibe as E.T. is reunited with his family.
The Ball Factory
Our family had a ball in the factory! The kids could seriously have spent an entire day with Curious George in his splash pad play land created with sets taken right from the stories. We were brainstorming how we could bring a ball factory back to Holland. It would be a blast for birthday parties or a family night out.
This well designed parade included something for everyone. The music and dancing were so entertaining and the colorful floats and costumes are so attractive. (It didn't hurt that we had VIP seats for viewing)
Everyone from our family enjoyed this 4-D attraction. Kevin and the boys sat in stationary seating where they watched the screen as a 3-D movie and loved it. Anne Hope and I took a risk and sat in the seats that move taking us on an inside, outside, upside down adventure.
In Springfield, home of the Simpsons, which just opened last week! the oldest 3 loved Kang and Kodo's Twirl and Hurl ride. The ride spins with a video game vibe and the kids most enjoyed being able to control how high or low their vehicle traveled. (Oops, I guess I couldn't resist listing 6)!
