Sender City
What an incredible experience! I thought rock climbing was mainly for adults but I definitely changed my mind after visiting Sender City, an amazing indoor interactive climbing center for kids. Adults can climb with their kids as well, and let me just say, you need to try this place out. You get to climb letters, ladders, turning wheels, buildings and even a glow-in-the-dark tunnel.

And to challenge your fear of heights, you can try reach for a punching bag suspended twenty feet above the ground.

Jump Catch

Or you can try their giant slide where you hold on to a handle bar and get pulled up higher and higher until you let go. It gave me a major adrenaline rush and to be honest with you I didn’t dare to try it a second time :).

Giant Slide

We had such an amazing time. It was incredible to watch my 5 year old climb these high walls with no fear and my 8 year old son jump off the high tower with no hesitation. I have to say it is one of the best family outings we have had this year! I totally recommend it.

  • You need to arrive 15-30 minutes prior to your reservation.

ice-skating-in-orange-countyIce skating with kids can be so much fun during the “cold” winter months but even in summer when you desperately need to cool off. Lucky for us, most ice skating rinks in Orange County are open to the public all year long.

Some rinks offer special tools, such as a pile of buckets, to help the kids skate on their own. I actually found these skating tools very helpful and even essential if you have more than one kid.

Below you will find a link to a list of all ice skating rinks in Orange County. Notice that the prices vary tremendously from one ice rink to the other. For example, a 4 year old will pay $6 at the Rinks Westminster Ice but will pay $19 at the Aliso Viejo Ice Palace. So make sure you compare prices.

Cheapest Ice Skating Rinks in Orange County:

  • For ages 4 and under: The Rinks Westminster Ice and the Rinks Yorba Linda Ice offer ice skating for $6, including skate rental.
  • For age 5: The Lake Forest Ice Palace is $8 including skate rental.
  • For ages 6+ : KHS Ice Arena is $10 including skate rental.
