We have a saying in Texas. “If you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes.” The weather has a mind of its own and is prone to change from time to time. We know when you’re on vacation with the kiddos; you want an entertaining plan so things don’t go awry. That’s why we compiled a weather-proof list of kid-friendly activities for you to utilize no matter what the meteorologist predicts.
1.) Kalahari Resorts and Conventions
Kalahari is an indoor African safari adventureland. It offers electrifying experiences all under one roof. The main attraction is their 223,000 sq ft indoor water park with exhilarating water slides, oscillating funnels, a lazy river, a wave pool, and a kiddie pool area. For more amusement, they have Tom Foolery’s Adventure Park, which includes thrill rides, 250+ arcade games, a ropes course, climbing walls, an indoor zipline, bowling, laser tag, and a mini-golf course!
2.) Uncle Bucks Underwater Bowling
Your youngsters will be happy as clams after bowling at Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl and Grill inside Bass Pro Shops. Every detail in this space is assembled to immerse you in the big blue. From the lighting to the ocean creatures, it feels like you’re swimming underwater. You and your kids can bowl a perfect 300-game, chow down on island-themed cuisine, and play the night away in their arcade area.
