One of San Antonio’s best-kept secrets for family fun is located just a few miles from Brandon Oaks.
Morgan’s Wonderland is a 25-acre amusement park that was purpose-built to accommodate children with special needs – but everyone is welcome! Preschool and elementary school children especially will enjoy a couple of hours at this beautiful park. Morgan’s Wonderland features several rides, including a Ferris wheel that’s over 5 stories tall, a train that circles an 8-acre lake, a carousel and a jeep your kids can “drive.”
Sensory Village includes indoor exhibits that encourage creative play. Kids can shop for groceries in a pint-sized market, pretend to be a TV meteorologist, design a custom car or ride an animatronic horse that simulates the real thing. There are several outdoor playgrounds, including one themed as a “Pirate Island.” At The Wharf, kids can try catch-and-release fishing and pilot remote-controlled boats. In the Music Garden, kids can play a variety of percussion instruments. There are also areas for playing in the sand and playing in the water. http://morganswonderland.com/attractions/rides-and-attractions
