Balboa Fun Zone
It’s all about of games and entertainment at the Balboa Fun Zone. The place is really lit, and a must visit for couples, families and especially children. An estimated whopping seven million people visit this area each year for recreation, which is really something.
So, rent a bike, take a harbor tour, enjoy the games or just take a beach boat out in the open sea – Balboa Fun Zone has got it all.
For the Food-Lover
As a foodie, you can be just as excited as those who came for the games. You can find some delicious barbeque at Balboa Bar-B-Que, grab a bite at New York Style Pizza or have some Sushi at the beach at San Shi Go Sushi. Alternatively, you can also feast on some Vietnamese-French cuisine at Chez Vu Bakery Café. And these are just a few names. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafés here for you to choose from.
Well, to begin with, there is the huge archaic Ferris Wheel that has been standing there since 1936. It has become a sort of a cultural landmark, and is probably one of the longest Ferris wheel rides you’ve taken.
Apart from the Ferris Wheel, there are plenty of other rides too, like the exciting Ocean Motion or the Happy Swing, both of which are perfect for some family-fun. There’s also an arcade that has over thirty classic games that families can enjoy.
Finally, there is also the rare Coconut Tree Climb activity where three family members can go head-on against each other, and just have an absolute blast.
If you are craving some edutainment then you can always opt for one of the many traveling exhibitions that are available here. Moreover, you can take the harbor tour, and even go freakin’ whale-watching with the family if you feel like it.
