This park ruled for the little kids. The wonderful Kinderhaven area was large, but positioned in a way that the children were contained. The Lazy River provided unique rafts that had child “seats” built in them that could hold up to 50lbs. So, I was able to take my 3 & 5 year old on the Lazy River by myself by putting on the Schlitterbahn Free Life Jackets and riding in one raft with my little guy and hanging onto my big girl in the other raft. It really made this mom's day easier to take them both at the same time. Also, Schlitterbahn’s wrist bracelets make it easy to enter and exit the park. So, if you do not to tote a cooler or have other incidental needs the Kansas City, Kansas Legends (an epic shopping/ restaurant district) is only 2 miles away.
