San Antonio has a few amusement parks that would make tons of fun for the children. I have not been to any of these places, but was amazed by what was available and thought I would share this for future travelers with kids.
For starters, San Antonio has Fiesta Texas. Fiesta Texas is now owned by Six Flags. Fiesta Texas is know for its huge roller coaster called the Rattler. There is also the Superman Krypton coaster, Boomerang, and Scream, all three are thrilling rides. There are plenty of family rides, fun rides, and entertainment throughout the whole park. The park offers shows and live musical performances that are at no extra cost. There are tons places to eat and lots of little stands to refresh yourself while waiting in lines.
Admission to the park is $46.99 and $31.99 for children 48" and under with kids under 2 FREE. Daily parking is $12. The park hours are different throughout the year, so check for your specific visit.
Next is Sea Wold San Antonio. This is also an amusement park with roller coasters and rides. This Sea World has more to offer than San Diego. There is of course the usual Shamu show and plenty of other live animal shows. They have a dolphin show, sea otter and seal show, they also have tons of animal attractions where you can get up-close and personal with the animals. Like Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World offers tons of family fun and entertainment and endless choices of food.
Admission to the park is $44.09 for adults and $35.09 for children. You will also have to check the hours here as they change throughout the year.
The next place worth mentioning is the Tower of the Americas. The tower is 750 feet tall and offers breathtaking views of San Antonio. The tower hosts an observation deck, an upscale eatery, and a 4-D multi-sensory theater. The cost of the observation deck is $5 for adults and $3 for children. The hours are 10am-10pm daily. You can buy passes for multiple attractions, such as the observation deck, the 4-D theater, and also a theater ride. Of course, the restaurants will also have their normal menu prices. The restaurants that are offered are Salt Grass Steak House, Landry's Sea Food, and the Rain forest Cafe.
These are just a few of the places I thought would be worth mentioning as great places to take the kids and would be fun for the whole family. I hope you will have fun and consider these places when choosing San Antonio as a vacation destination.
