Explore Kansas with Your Kids!
Finding enough activities to keep the kiddos entertained isn’t always easy. As parents, those of us here at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram feel the pain. That’s why we put our heads together and came up with this list of ways to explore Kansas with your kids! From Nickerson to Newton and beyond, these are our best kid-friendly activities in the area. Feel free to let us know if we forgot any of your kids’ favorite spots. And if you need a reliable and safe ride to go to and from these great museums, parks, and gymnasiums, don’t forget to check out the new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram for sale at our Hutchinson dealership.
Remember when space was cool? Reignite the desire to explore the universe in your children with Cosmosphere (1100 N Plum St, Hutchinson, KS), a space museum, STEM education center, and so much more. Opened in 1962, Cosmosphere offers visitors the delight of the Hall of Space Museum, the Carey Digital Dome Theater for documentaries, a space-age naviGATOR simulator, and more. You can buy tickets for individual attractions, or splurge for the affordable unlimited access pass and make a full day of it.
Here’s a suggestion: salt. Wait, don’t leave, there’s more! Strataca (3650 E Ave G, Hutchinson, KS) is more than just a lesson on the mineral your kids put on their french fries, it’s an underground mine—a real one—that you can explore with guided tours and train rides. Exhibits include the Dark Ride, a 30-minute ride on a tram detailing the difficulties of maintaining a mine, and True Geology, an exhibit that details how underground mining has contributed to our understanding of Mars.
Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park
The Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park (8545 W Irving St, Wichita, KS 67209) is sort of self-explanatory. The indoor trampoline facility hosts a wide range of fun activities, from a Warrior Obstacle Course to jump-filled birthday parties and dodgeball. Needless to say, this is a great way to wear the kids out!
