Disclosure: We attended as media.
Easter season has officially begun! One of our favorite Easter tradition is taking the kids Easter Egg Hunting and getting their photos taken with the Easter Bunny. It’s fun to see the children searching for eggs as fast as they can, and they’re anxious to open them too. I love seeing the joy in their faces. We take photos with the Easter Bunny every year, because they make great
keepsakes, and their grandparents love them.
TIP #2: Get a timed ticket for Egg Hunting.
You’ll need to exchange 1 ticket ($5) for each child egg hunting for a wristband. There are different times for different age groups so you’ll want to secure a time that works for your group. Note: One of the time slots includes all kids up to age 12. If you have a small child and don’t want your child to compete with the big kids, pick a different time slot. I like that they always have enough eggs for everyone, however, there is an 8 eggs per child limit, and they can grab as much candy they can find. Eggs are filled with either candy, stickers, or prizes. (We won a free Hayride. Last year we won a free pony ride). We like to recycle the eggs after the hunt, and they have a recycling barrel.
Easter Egg Hunt Times (Daily):
- 2 – 4 years 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00
- 2 – 7 years 10:30, 12:30, 2:30 and 4:30
- 2 – 12 years 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30 ALL AGES
TIP #3: Get in line to meet the Easter Bunny.
If your children are dressed up to meet the Easter Bunny, get their photos done early so they don’t get their Easter outfits dirty! A print out of your first photo is $10, and $6 for additional copies.
TIP #5: Everyone wins a prize at Carnival Games. There are two games: a ring toss and a bean bag toss. To play, it requires 1 ticket per child. The kids have fun trying and they get a prize no matter what.
Other activities include: Hay Rides, Cookie Decorating, Moon Bounce, Face Painting, a coloring corner (free), and fun picture stands (free).
