Miniland, USA is probably the most unusual section as it includes miniatures of seven large metropolitan areas at one twentieth scale. This section also houses the model shop with a large window where park visitors can watch the construction of new park projects.
The Duplo World section is a water attraction with many water related activities. You may just get a little wet as you compete in highly interactive games.
The Fun Town section has two driving schools where children can learn all the ins and outs of driving using electric cars. The Castle Hill section involves riding a roller coaster through a medieval castle and meeting a wizard who casts a spell that allows the coaster to speed up.

They are The Shamu Adventure and the Blue Horizons Dolphin Show. These animals are so well trained that their performances seem miracle-like as they glide over and under and above the water. There are several great attractions to check out.
Journey to Atlantis is a boat trip with exciting lifts, turns and twists. Wild Arctic is a simulated trip though the Arctic. Shipwreck Rapids is a raft ride which winds through several twists & turns and even under a waterfall. The 320 foot SeaWorld Sky tower is a great ride as you rise and spin above the whole park and get a great view of San Diego.
Penguin Encounter is a large exhibit of Emperor penguins who live their normal lives behind a glass wall as we watch and study their every move. To round our the greatness of SeaWorld there are also many exhibits and rides just for children and be sure to check out the interactive programs with both whales and dolphins.
Laguna Beach is a magical artists' hideaway surrounded by stunning ocean vistas, an abundance of flowers and filled with interesting art galleries, quaint boutiques and a wide variety of restaurants. I always stay at the Pacific Edge because of its central location to shops, restaurants and boutiques and also because it is right on the beach. No need for a car everything is in walking distance.
I start the day off with breakfast at The Beach House which is conveniently located right next to the hotel, followed by a walk along the gorgeous coastline and a stroll through the shops and then choose from a variety of options for the afternoon, but mainly I relax!
There are many wonderful hotels to choose from but Pacific edge is the best for families or anyone on a budget. It does not have all the luxuries of the higher priced establishments, but it is hard to beat for amenities which include a family friendly pool and beach front dining. The staff is always courteous, always accommodating and make me feel like family each time I visit.
There is so much to do in this little town that I can't imagine every getting bored. No matter where I travel or where I move, I plan to spend two weeks here every year of my life. It truly is paradise! - Denise from Riverside
They have every kind of coaster you can imagine. Loop the loop, tandem, stand-up, big drop and wooden. Now wooden has a special feature that none other have. It sways and vibrates in unique ways which adds to the excitement.
Their latest wood coaster is called "Terminator Salvation: The Ride". Selected portions of the park were used in the movies “Rollercoaster” in 1977 and it became “Walley World” for “National Lampoon’s Vacation” in 1982.
The park was also used in several TV programs. There is much to do for children who are too young for the big roller coasters. Thomas Town is an exciting play area featuring a replica of Thomas the Tank Engine. This replica is large enough to take guests on a trip through the park.
As you would expect, there is a smaller roller coaster for the younger children and Looney Tune characters such as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck roam the park and continually interact with the guests.
In modern times this situation was discovered and verified. Fast forward to 2010 and we find the George C. Page Museum in Hancock Park on Wilshire Blvd. right next to the tar pits.
The museum houses many of the bones that were found plus a history of the discovery and the excavation. On the grounds of the museum are many models of the animals and birds that were excavated from the pits and the admission is free.
