Family Focus: Kid's Kingdom

Posted: Updated:

If you have a small child who can't ride the bigger rides, the Kid's Kingdom provides an area designed for just kids and families.

"The main feature, it's just a nice park atmosphere. It's grass. There's nice benches there for the parents to sit on, watch the children," says Theodore Buzunis, Murphy Brothers Expositions.

The smaller Ferris wheel and younger kid-friendly rides can let parents relax and enjoy their time and feel safe.

"There's a beautiful carousel there for the children, a bunch of nice kiddy rides, a high Ferris wheel for mommy, daddy, grandma, grandpa," says Buzunis.

But there is still a height requirement on the kid's rides that parents should be aware of.

"Every ride on our midway has a height card for a child, you have to reach that height and that is done by the insurance companies, state inspectors, in coordination with our ride superintendents. If a child is lower than that, he cannot ride the ride for safety concerns," says Buzunis.

The family-friendly Kid's Kingdom is geared towards children ages four through twelve. 

"They have a nice place to go and sit and ride the children's rides and play the games. They have a nice duck pond, and you win a prize every time. So, that's what we feature over there and it's all in a special area for the kids," says Buzunis.
