A Visit to Calaway Park

The weather forecast wasn’t great, but we had family over last weekend and decided to have some fun at Calaway Park. None of us had ever been there, so this promised to be a day of exploration.

This is not a sponsored post. 🙂

What I really love about Calaway Park is how family-oriented the place is. Usually, theme parks have one little section dedicated to kids, while the rest of the park caters for older thrill-seekers. Calaway Park focuses on kids, with many rides exclusively for kids or families, and just a handful of rides only teens or adults can enjoy.

I appreciated the park layout–you don’t have to go too far to reach a food stall or find a washroom, more proof that they really had families in mind when designing the place. There are few things that suck more than to walk 800m with a small kid who needs to pee, and moans all the way about needing to pee.

Also, the group ticket we got included a pizza for lunch. A really good pizza, with this delicious spice-infused crust. Again, a good deal for a family. Everybody loves pizza.

It’s not the world’s biggest park, but there’s just enough to do to have a full day and not walk until your legs come off. I also really appreciated the fact that it wasn’t as busy as other parks–though this was admittedly due to the weather. I reckon the crowds will arrive with the summer holidays.

Anyway, because the park wasn’t so busy, we barely had to wait in line for any of the rides, except for two of the biggest rides (Timber Falls and the Vortex).

All in all, we had a great time and will definitely revisit Calaway.

Thanks again to the cousins for the visit, we had a great time.

Hope you all have a fantastic week. 🙂
