Family fun in San Diego

Thursday, 25 May, 2023 0

There is an abundance of exciting new additions at some of San Diego’s top attractions.

In theme parks and attractions, LEGOLAND California, SeaWorld San Diego, the San Diego Zoo and Sesame Place San Diego all have new experiences this year.

LEGOLAND California debuted Miniland San Diego this year. Created over thousands of hours, Miniland San Diego features LEGO versions of iconic landmarks inspired by the Gaslamp District, the San Diego Convention Center, Coronado Bridge, Petco Park, Balboa Park and more.

SeaWorld San Diego’s highly anticipated roller coaster, Artic Rescue, launched in the spring, taking the title of longest and fastest straddle coaster on the West Coast. The multi-launch ride invites guests to hop on a snowmobile for a chilly adventure. Also new this summer is Rescue Jr, a kid-friendly play area where children become park heroes while learning about animal rescue.

The San Diego Zoo’s all-new Wildlife Explorer’s Basecamp is now open, inviting children to “go wild” as they learn about nature. Basecamp blends learning with physical activity and play.

Belmont Park has big plans in motion for its 100th anniversary in 2025, including opening a new ride. In the meantime, a new interactive climbing tower called Sun Kid Tower will debut this summer, offering thrill seekers views of the Pacific Ocean and Mission Beach boardwalk. The park recently replaced its Control Freak ride with Flip Out, and expanded its Lazerblast Arcade.

Sesame Place San Diego is home to family-friendly rides and water slides, shows and parades, and this summer the park will debut Dine with Elmo & Friends. This interactive adventure includes a buffet-style meal and entertainment. Sesame Place is an accredited Certified Autism Center, with team members trained in sensory awareness and program development.

To celebrate the Fourth of July, the USS Midway Museum is hosting a fireworks viewing party from the flight deck of its historic aircraft carrier. In addition to the best view in town for the Big Bay Boom, guests will enjoy live entertainment, barbecue, photo opps and more.
