San Antonio’s outpost of the national amusement park chain is Mexican fiesta-themed, with more than 50 rides that start with the Kiddee Coaster and ratchet up to Fireball, Pandemonium, and Spinsanity. Get a nowhere-else thrill: the Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster is the world’s first single-rail roller coaster.
As one of the biggest cities in the US, San Antonio is packed with awesome things to do for all the family; kids and adults alike. What we love most about it are the historic attractions that make learning fun: places like the Alamo that take youngsters on a journey to Texas’ past, and the nearby River Walk and Pearl neighborhood that bring them back up to modern speed. Then you have Six Flags, i.e. the Queen of all theme parks in the South. Yes, South Texas may be toasty spring, summer and fall, but the locals sure are pros at cooling off in these times too. They’ll seek out AC-chilled indoor activities like bowling or lots of splash at local water parks, so nothing gets in the way of a swell time. We’ve plucked the best things to do with kids in the San Antonio area, so y’all can have a blast the whole year round.
