Como Town is the amusement-park cousin of its neighbor, the (free) Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, as well as the other nearby attractions in the historical park. Rides have been available on the site since 1949, but the version of the 4-acre park you can visit today first opened in 2005—and has been adding new features ever since.
Kid-sized carnival: Classic, low-pressure attractions include bumper cars, spinning teacups, the swing ride, and the Como Town train. (The merry-go-round-esque Classic Cruisers and Pony Carts are even vintage models restored to mint condition.)
Thrill rides: Start slow with the Frog Hopper, a lift-and-drop ride more likely to elicit giggles than screams, then proceed to the tilt-a-whirl. From there, visitors are ready for the swinging pirate ship, the figure-eight Tiger Trax coaster, and the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride, which seats two at a time and offers panoramic views of Como Park from 85 feet up.
Interactive experiences: Kids can expend whatever remaining energy they have exploring Hodge Podge Park jungle gym or getting soaked in the Splash Zone water park. New this season is a free kids’ foam party every day.
