We can’t pass a fair on a road trip without squeals coming from the back seat. When K-Days is in town, those squeals are just as rampant, and they fun is in our own backyard. Over the past six year we’ve brought infants in strollers who have slept the entire way through, brought toddlers who wanted to spend the entire amount of time on the merry go round, and most recently, adventurous young children that the thrill of going on their first kiddie-roller coaster. Along our summer adventures, we’ve learned a few things about bringing kids to K-Days in Edmonton.
Buy Ride All Day Tickets in Advance
Save up to $18 per pass by purchasing your Ride All Day Pass before July 16. Just $47 dollars will get you gate admission into K-Days and on every ride for your entire visit. Compare this to Onsite Ride All Day Pass sells for $49 and does not include K-Days gate admission and it’s easy to see those savings add up for one of the highlights of summer in Edmonton.
Go Through the Gates with a Plan
Have a look through the programming and make a plan to tackle the adventure and fun that comes with visiting K Days, whether you’re coming for the Kid Stage entertainment or the midway. Plan which exhibits you want to see most, and see those first. For us, planning around nap time or the time when the kids are going to be the most agreeable have made for the best experiences.
Go Back Again
For $30, you can get admission to K-Days through the entire ten days. This is a great idea for parents of young children that want to break up the visits and experience everything there is to do, over a course of two or three (or daily) visits. It’s also a great way to experience the awesome children’s entertainment and fun, on a budget.
Go With a Friend
We’ve always gone to K-Days with kids that are a couple of years apart. This is the first year that the girls are interested in going on the same rides together. Bringing reinforcements or coming along with another set of parents gives Mom and Dad the option to see that sheer look of delight on the first roller coaster ride, while the younger kids go on something a little smaller scale, or take part in one of the many things to do for little kids.
Go Right at Noon
There’s something about going when those gates first open, driving to K-Days and surprising the kids with a fun day out of summer fun. You’ll hear the excitement when they see the signature rides, and instantly demand to go on their favorite rides, like the big slides. Plus, when the gates open at noon you can avoid some of the lines.
