Quality family time is important, and Seattle understands that, which is why they have a ton of fun, and interesting things that the whole family can enjoy and participate in. Some wonderful examples of family fun activities in Seattle include, but are not limited to:
Wild Waves Theme Park
This theme park, which is a great combination of a water park and an amusement- themed park, has over 60 fun rides, slides and attractions for all to enjoy (including THREE roller coasters, a 24,000 square foot-sized wave pool, and a lazy river for relaxing).
During the month of December, this park will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland, with added festive twinkling lights, holiday cheer and a visit from Santa. This attraction is less than 12 miles from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Ever have a desire to skydive, but the thought of jumping out a plane is terrifying? Well then, you can experience what true skydiving and free-falling conditions are like, without actually having to jump out of plane.
iFLY is one of the most popular and highly recommended indoor skydiving experiences, that the whole family can enjoy, because it is challenging for adults, safe for children (over three years of age), and an exciting experience for teenagers.
Just about anyone can learn how to fly in the wind tunnel that generates speeds of up to160 miles per hour. There is no previous experience necessary, as you will be instructed by an experienced professional, and all flight gear will be provided.
Step off the beaten path and tour the area from a Kayak. A professional guide will supply you with a rich history of the area, and more than enough opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Other kayaking tours take place at sunset, so you can have a unique view of the sun melting over the Olympic Mountains. This natural spectacular light, displayed over the Seattle skyline, is not to be missed.
This museum, which inspires creativity and celebrates imagination, is located at the Seattle Center (325 5th Avenue North). This non-profit museum is dedicated to the risk-takers that fueled the world of pop culture. The majority of the exhibitions, interactive technologies, collections and educational programs are based on Rock ‘n Roll.
See the workers working on actual planes from the rafters of this factory. In addition, you will be able to see planes, like the 747, 777, and 787, up close and personal. This is an amazing educational tour that should not be missed.Phones and cameras are not permitted on this tour. There are lockers available for your convenience and protection of your valuables.
