We recently had the chance to head to Idlewild and Soak Zone. This is the best park, especially for kids 10 & under, so it is not a surprise that it's been voted the Best Children's Park in the World for the past 4 years! It's a bit of a drive from Pittsburgh, but definitely worth it.
This was the first time we were able to walk through Story Book Forest. We loved our walk through favorite stories & fairy tales!
Jumpin' Jungle is a great place to burn some energy as you climb the Net Climb, Cross the Swinging Bridge, head down Bigfoot's Mudslide, do the Tunnel Crawl, or climb the Tree House.
If your kids are a little older, there are more than 15 fast-paced rides in Olde Ildewild & Hootin' Holler' to give them a thrill!
We spent most of our time in Raccoon Lagoon which has so many great rides for little ones. When we've been there during the week, there have been little or no lines!
But that's not all...there is still Soak Zone to enjoy!
