BEST WAY TO KILL TWO HOURS WITH THE KIDS Phoenix 2004 - Kiddieland/Enchanted Island Amusement Park
There's nothing Mickey Mouse about this little amusement park, but be warned that it's only open on weekends (with a few exceptions). The place looks smaller than we remember it from our youth, but to our kids, it's huge. Either way, Kiddieland has all the prerequisites for a morning of fun: carousel, train, face painting, rides. Bring a picnic lunch to eat in the park, or buy from the traditional concession stand.
We love this carnival in the middle of the city -- and we bet you and your kids will, too.
