If you are planning a family trip to Los Angeles, you will be amazed at the amount of attractions for children. It is worth taking some time to pick out the attractions you are most interested in rather than waiting until you arrive. Some benefits of early planning are getting more for your money – often if you book online in advance you will pay less for your tickets.
Legoland is a wonderful place for children of all ages. There are over 50 attractions and rides, all themed towards kids. Your children will see their favorite Lego characters, as well as toys brought to life. At Miniland USA you can find seven areas of the United States, all in miniature. It’s made up of over 30 million building blocks. It can be very educational to see this particularly for young children and it gives them an idea of areas different from their own.
If your family enjoyed the LEGO Movie, then they will enjoy seeing the 4D A New Adventure, with their favorite characters like Emmet, the beautiful Wyldstyle as well as Unikitty, Benny and the others. Legoland celebrates its 20th birthday in 2019 and there are lots of new adventures to be had, including a new Duplo section for little children as well as many more exciting new rides.
If you like extreme rides like rollercoasters with fast speed drops, then look no further than Knott’s Berry Farm. It’s not all about the thrills and spills though, there are slower rides for the younger kids like Balloon Race and Grand Sierra Railroad. But if you have the need for speed, then La Revolucion, or Supreme Scream might take your fancy. And if you are brave then there is Wipeout!
Families that play together stay together, so why not get everyone together to try the Timber Mountain Log Ride or Bigfoot Rapids? For the older members of your tribe, Wheeler Dealer Bumper Cars could bring back some fond memories.
Older children and adults will love Madame Tussauds in Hollywood. The opportunity to wow at the amazingly lifelike waxwork models (they are life size) means also you can take pictures with your favorite stars. Famous characters and actors from yesteryear sit beside current favorites. Have your picture taken next to your idol and show your friends who you met in LA!
Whatever your kids enjoy watching, there will be something to keep them amused. The actor your daughter loves will be here waiting for her. Your son’s secret crush will be here too. Even comic books are featured with lots of Marvel action figures for you to see.
This is perhaps the most interesting museum in California. With 400,000 feet of scientific exploration, you are sure to be a popular mom bringing your children here. Little ones will see their movie favorites in a new light when science is presented through exhibits that they already enjoy. There are plenty of hands-on exhibits for them to get really into the experience.
You will be able to see the space shuttle Endeavour, follow how it was built and used then brought back home.
Whatever you choose to do in Los Angeles, you are sure to find something suitable for every member of the family. Get searching and book your trip today!
