                Thanks to Peter Greenberg - Family/Kids Travel, Featured Posts, Theme Parks, Travel Tips

As summer approaches, it’s time to think about how to keep the kids entertained. And some of the big theme parks are coming up with creative ways to get your attention.

Colonial Williamsburg isn’t just about reenacting the old days. They’ve actually created an experience that requires a cell phone. You’ll explore Revolutionary City as an undercover agent, solving clues and cracking codes sent through text messages.

SeaWorld in Orlando has a new penguin exhibit opening this spring—and we’re not just talking about a few penguins walking around. This is a huge undertaking and it’s a totally immersive experience—getting you deep into the Antarctic habitat and up close and personal with a penguin colony

Now talk about crazy…and inventive: Luna Park on Coney Island was bought out by an Italian company a couple of years ago, and now they’re installing a ride based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying bikes.

And if you’re one of those people who only care about the high-octane thrill rides, then head to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. The new GateKeeper coaster is breaking records all over the place—including the longest track and the longest drop.
