    Re: Has anyone been to Adventure City in Anaheim?

    Never seen it in anahiem,But,from what I have seen and known,its a amusement park just a few miles past Knotts near the Doll museum(or the areas known as Hobby city).
    theres a roller coaster (you can see it on the main road) right on the edge of the park,plus a few rides.
    I never have been in the park, but seen it so many times when going just a small walk across to the card shop when I used to go out to buena park alot for trips.
    unless it moved from buena park to anahiem, this location is new to me.

    Its on Beach Blvd just south of Knott's. I never went to the amusement park - as a kid it wasn't there. But I did go to Hobby City quite often.

    And it is in Anaheim.

    It's $14 to get in... but worth a half day trip if you have little ones (anyone over the age of 7 or 8 would likely be bored by the tame rides). Imagine a mini Disneyland of sorts with all the rides centered on little kids! For us it was a pretty good afternoon, but our kids are in that demographic. They also do kids BDay parties (not sure on pricing).

    They do have a fun Wildmouse for us older kids though! And sadly the Doll Museum is no longer in Hobby City.

    Thanks for the information.

    I have several grand children that would fit into the demographic for this park but had never heard of it until yesterday (although I have lived in L.A. and Orange Counties my entire life!).

    It's tiny! We used to take the YMCA kids there during the summer. The rides are all kiddie rides and the lines are really short becausr there aren't that many people there. I remember having fun at the petting zoo there too.

    My best score ever!

    It was the first amusement park I took Wolfette to when she was under 5 years old. I considered it training for things to come.....it worked!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    It is very small... essentially comparable to a "kiddie" area in a larger amusement park. Well maintained, and has it's charms, and a very small petting zoo. The highlight is the Tree Top Racers, one of the few remaining Wild Chipmunk rides in the country. I understand they got new cars, although I haven't been in them recently. I can say that it is a very fun ride that is nearly worth the price of admission alone, and there generally isn't a big line for it.

    Also, if you happen to be an ACE member, you can get in for $5.

    That entire plaza was known as Hobby City for years, and had stores focused on model making, leather craft, reptiles, Cabbage Patch kids, teddy bears, and dolls. There was also a small train that took you around... I believe that train is inside Adventure City now. Many of the stores are still there, but it's not quite what it used to be.

    Also, this park was in the news semi-recently because it was about to be sold for condo development. As I understand it, though, that has been postponed for about a year... after that, the future is a bit uncertain. So go now, and support the local community!
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?
