My daughters are 8 and 6 years old, and over the last few years I've learned some vital things about taking young kids to amusement parks:

  1. It ain't cheap.
  2. Ride lines are usually long and waiting with excited, impatient children can be quite unbearable.
  3. Young kids aren't tall enough to go on most of the "cool" rides, and many parks only have a few rides that young children can choose from.
  4. Parents often have to accompany their young children on rides and may feel like puking before, during, and after the ride is finished.

If you really want to find an amusement park to visit that the whole family can enjoy together, look no further than Little Amerricka in Marshall, Wisconsin!
