Part One of my Mini-Series..
Fun Family Things to do in the Bucks County Area
It rained...A LOT...while we were in PA this summer. What's a girl to do with 5 kids, ages 1 to 12???
Well, she takes them to Giggleberry Fair, that's what!
Giggleberry Fair at Peddler's Village is a 10,000 square foot, indoor attraction that has something exciting for every age, adults included.
Head to Giggleberry Mountain, where adults and kids alike can climb the three-story, 6 level obstacle course, all while dodging the foam "berries" being hurdled at you by berry blasters and berry fountain explosions. My two year can tell you from experience that the custom designed, enclosed slide that coils down all three stories is pretty intense, and not for the faint of heart. ;) You may want to stick to the side by side racing slides!
The little guys will love Giggles Discovers!, an interactive "edu-tainment" area for the 5 and under crowd. The Waterway was a big favorite...yes, it does contain real water, and yes, they provide aprons for the kiddos! Our preschoolers loved playing in the Giggles Fire Station and putting on a puppet show for all of us big kids.
Be sure to take a ride on the historic Grand Carousel, built in 1922, and fully restored in 1998.
Want to keep it low key? Grab some tokens and hit the arcade, where you can play everything from racing games to Skeeball (they boast ever 50 games). My 12 year old spent all of his tokens trying to win the ticket jackpot, only to win it for my 8 year old when she asked him to help her. It was hilarious for the rest of us, but he was not thrilled! Be sure to head to the redemption counter to turn in your tickets for cool prizes before you head home (my oldest chose about 40 Smarties...seriously???).
If you are anything like me, you will want to check out the deals on the Giggleberry website before you head over. There are different deals everyday, and you can purchase an all-inclusive pass or just head to one area. Giggleberry Fair has won the Best of Bucks award for Birthday Parties, too...so be sure to check them out when your kids are ready to blow out their candles!
