Phoenix Arizona’s beautiful weather makes it an ideal place to enjoy the sun, and if you’re looking for a little fun with your sun, try one of the many amazing amusement parks that dot the area. From coasters and waterslides to miniature golf and activity pools, you will find enough to entertain the entire family and keep everyone happy throughout the real estate in Phoenix Arizona. Plus, a day full of activities is a great way to tire the kids out and ensure a good night’s sleep for all.
Arizona’s parks offer a diverse range of activities to please the adventure-seekers and the leisure visitors alike. For a wild, toe-curling time, visit Arizona’s most thrilling roller coaster at Phoenix’s Castles ‘n Coasters. The Desert Storm will dip, flip, drop, and spin you and win you over with its many twists and turns. The Patriot is designed to thrill those of all ages and their newest ride is their official “Scream Machine” called the Sky Diver. Or head to CrackerJax in nearby Scottsdale, to perform amazing aerial feats in the new Bungee Dome, or stop by Golfland Sunsplash for the 5-story, stomach-dropping Thunder Falls water slide. There is never a dull minute at Arizona’s best amusement parks.
Perhaps you are looking for something a little more mellow or little kid-friendly? No problem. Visit Sunsplash with your little ones and try out the Toddler Tadpole Pool or their incredible zero-depth Caribbean Water Works. Either way, your child will have a blast, cool off, happily play away the day. For older kids and adults, there are lazy rivers, water slides, and much more to keep everyone busy. Play in the 1.3 million gallon wave pool at Breakers Water Park, or try their incredible New Captain’s Kidd Surfari. No one has to be left out of the fun because they’re too young – or too old. There’s something for everyone.
Arizona pays homage to its history with a great selection of western theme parks. At Old Tucson, for instance, you can pan for gold, ride the trails and see saguaro cacti and the rugged beauty of the landscape. Drive antique cars or hop aboard the CP Huntington Train. Watch out for desperados! Step back in time at Rawhide as you watch Wild West stunt shows, go on train or burrow rides, or see if you have the fastest hands in the West. Best of all, after a long day of playing cowboy, stop by the Rawhide Steakhouse & Golden Belle Saloon for unbelievable BBQ baby back ribs, fresh-baked apple pie with cinnamon-swirl ice-cream, and other delicious treats.
One should never hear any complaints from people about there being nothing to do in the Phoenix Arizona area. Whether you love twisting water slides, gentle wading pools, laser tag, golf, or having your loved ones arrested by a Wild West sheriff (which you can do at Rawhide), Arizona’s amusement and theme parks can keep you busy all year long. Take advantage of the sun, great weather, and all of the excitement Phoenix has to offer.
