Atlanta Children's Museums
Downtown Atlanta is home to many great attractions for kids - including the popular Georgia Aquarium and World of Coke. One more to remember is the Imagine It! Children's Museum. With rotating exhibits, there is always something new for kids to explore.
North of Atlanta, there is also the INK Children's Museum. Located in Gainseville, INK is set up like it's own little town that kids can explore. They can try out different pretend "jobs" and act out real-life activities. The museum is a bargain at just $8.
Atlanta Trampoline Parks
Indoor trampoline parks are a fun, new activity that have made their way to Atlanta. They are basically a giant room where the whole floor - and even the walls - are made from bouncy trampolines! These parks are mostly geared toward kids, though they have fitness classes and jump time for adults too.
Atlanta's first trampoline park is SkyZone, up in Suwanee. Prices to play are: 30-min jump: $9; 60-min jump: $13; 90-min jump: $17; 120-min jump: $20. Jump times start every 30 minutes. At most times, open jump is available. They also have special teen and tween jump times.
Opening soon, Hang Time will bring the trampoline park phenomenon intown to Buckhead. There will be two areas, divided by age for a safe jumping experience for everyone. They'll also have fun activities like dodgeball tournaments and foam pits. Hang Time will be located next to Fork and Screen.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center
Coming soon to Atlanta, LEGOLAND Discovery Center will bring the fun of LEGOs to a whole new, life-sized level! There are tons of attractions at LEGOLAND. Kids can see how LEGO blocks get made, check out a 4-D film (with wind, rain and snow), see Atlanta landmarks in LEGO form, play with lasers, race cars and more.
Tickets to LEGOLAND will be $19 for adults and $15 for kids. You can save by booking tickets in advance. They will be open daily and recommend 2 - 3 hours for your visit.
LEGOLAND is located at Phipps Plaza in Buckhead.
Water Fun in Atlanta
Water parks are another summertime favorite! White Water has activities for all ages of kids - and adults, too! There is also the modest but fun Sun Valley Beach, located in Austell. A little bit out of town, take the family for a day or even an overnight stay to Robin Lake Beach at Callaway Gardens or Lake Lanier.
