Fun activities will be available in Orlando next week for children under the age of 12. This high-energy age group is perfect for theme parks, and just like Legoland, this age group is also being targeted by a new attraction opening February 24 near International Drive in Orlando. Close to the heart of the tourist area, and close enough for locals, an attraction such as this is just what kids need when it is raining outside, too hot, or just looking for a new way to burn a little energy.
Galaxy Fun Orlando is located next to the World Bowling Center at 7500 Canada Avenue, Orlando, FL 32819 (just off i-drive). For local residents familiar with the area, this is where the old ice rink used to be. It has been transformed into a 48,000-square foot indoor playground with three gigantic areas:
- Maxi Rocket – for kids 4-12 (max 60 inches)
- Mini Rocket – for kids under 4 years
- Mezzanine – restaurant, Wi-Fi, arcade
The Maxi Rocket playground has more than 100 slides, ramps, tunnels, cannons, bridges and more. Kids can run throughout this multi-level playground until they are exhausted. There is even a specially designed Brazilian street-soccer court if they are up for some indoor soccer.
The Mini Rocket playground separates the big kids from the little ones where children can play with their parents. This new attraction has been specially designed for smaller sizes and abilities. Let your child explore like never before!
Parents are sure to love the mezzanine area. Comfortable seating is provided overlooking the entire playground. Food, drinks and high-speed Wi-Fi (free) are available. The food consists of children favorites such as pizza, chicken tenders, hot dogs and cheeseburgers. The concession is affordably priced. For adults, beer and wine is also available.
The cost for this new Orlando attraction is $9.99 (kids under 4) and $19.99 (kids 4-12). Prices are also available for groups and birthday parties. Hours are Monday to Thursday 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm; Friday 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm; Saturday & Sunday 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. Kids must be accompanied by an adult, and adults must be accompanied by children. For more information about Galaxy Fun Orlando, call 407-247-0881 or visit www.galaxyfunorlando.com.
Once the kids have depleted their energy (is that possible?), why not head down the road to Capone’s Dinner & Show. It is a great place for parents that want to have fun with the entire family. If you thought you couldn’t have a fun night out at a dinner and a show with the kids, think again. Many families have enjoyed this Orlando dinner show. Read visitor’s comments and try it out for yourself. After all, kids shouldn’t have all the fun!
