Description And Comments
A great place for the little ones to blow off some steam, the idea behind this whimsical playground in Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone is that you've been shrunk to the size of An American Tail's rodent protagonist, and let loose to explore the detritus in an old West town. The playground features ordinary household items reproduced on a giant scale, as a mouse would experience them. Kids can climb nets, walk through a huge boot or 1,000-gallon cowboy hat, splash in a sardine-can fountain, sway along elevated wooden bridges, seesaw on huge spoons, and clamber onto a cow skull.
Most of the playground is reserved for preschoolers and grade-schoolers, but a combo waterslide and raft ride is open to all ages. The 3-story water slide's rafts hold two people, so you should start faking that old war/football/child-bearing back injury to other adults in your group as soon as you get near the Playland. You will get wet.
Most of Fievel’s Playland requires no waiting, so you can visit anytime and stay as long as you want. Younger children love the oversize items, and there’s enough to keep teens and adults busy while little ones let off steam. Most of the playsets are designed for kids old enough to run, climb and slide by themselves. If your kids aren't quite ready for Fievel, there's an interactive play area called Barney's Backyard located next door, for smaller kids.
The waterslide is extremely slow-loading and carries only 300 riders per hour. During warmer months it's possible for the water slide to develop a wait of 20 to 30 minutes. We don't think the 16-second ride is worth that kind of wait. If riding the slide is important to your child, try visiting right after lunch or dinner, when many other families are still eating.
Lack of shade is a major shortcoming of the entire attraction--the playground is scorching during the heat of the day.
