Tour guides lead groups on a half-mile jaunt through these natural, underground caverns where illuminated pathways offer glimpses of stalactites and stalagmites. Once they get back to the surface, adventurous kids can take on the Canopy Challenge, a four-level obstacle course that rises 60 feet into the air.
Like all the Six Flags theme parks, Six Flags Fiesta Texas offers something for the whole family. Big kids and their parents can brave exhilarating coasters like the 4D Batman: The Ride, while smaller adventurers can enjoy age-appropriate thrills like Scooby-Doo Ghostbusters or the Kiddee Koaster.
Narcissus would certainly be at home in the Ultimate Mirror Maze Challenge, though he'd surely never find his way out once surrounded by infinite hordes of his own reflection. Maze visitors not distracted by their own chiseled jawlines must find their way through endless circles and dead-end paths in the black-lit, mirror-lined cavern. Once they've emerged victorious from the winding corridors, they can celebrate by morphing their appearances in "funky mirrors"—stretching themselves out, making themselves stout, or masquerading as clusters of beanpoles. Inside The Vault Laser Beam Challenge, players race the clock, dodging bright-green laser beams and maneuvering through tricky webs, careful to avoid breaking the light stream. They can play as many times as they wish to perfect their beam-evasion techniques or to practice craftily returning stolen art to museums.
In 1925, Kiddie Park first opened its doors, and since then, generations of kids have flocked to the park, and its classic rides. After a renovation in 2009, the grounds were augmented with modern facilities such as a new entrance. The revamping efforts proved fruitful, and the San Antonio Current lauded the facility as the Best Kid-friendly Park (& Comeback Story) in 2010.
Now more than 85 years after its opening, Kiddie Park welcomes visitors for days of fun and nostalgia. A train winds through turns, while a ferris wheel proffers elevated views of the historic grounds and lollipops stuck in visitors' hair. Hand-carved in 1918, the park's flagship Herschell Spillman carousel still beckons visitors aboard its decades-old horses. Elsewhere, a snack bar tempts taste buds with classic treats such as funnel cakes and cotton candy.
Encompassing an 11,000-square-foot indoor batting arena, an air-conditioned clubhouse filled with training videos, and an outdoor plot of screen-enclosed batting cages, Power Swing's facilities help train baseball and softball players of all ages and skill levels. Instructors train students in four private pitching tunnels and let them practice on a turf infield or field hits from regulation-size pitching mounds. Outside, players swing at four T-ball cages, or return machine-pitched volleys from 10 baseball pitchers and nine softball pitchers that launch balls and unwanted vases at up to 80 miles per hour. A team of coaches, many of them former athletes, can also help students hone pitching and hitting skills in private, semiprivate, and small-group lessons, and lead instructional clinics and athletic afterschool programs.
