The park itself seemed to be an odd blend of colourful rides including giant slides, trampolines, dark caves and man-powered rides from the fair which passed through about 20 years ago.
The kids enjoyed themselves and it was a beautiful view seeing the clash of the rides contrasting against the backdrop of the mountains.
The entrance fees were cheap and a couple of the rides charged a minimal fee although we spent more on the icecream and drinks than anything else. And of course the popcorn vendor outside provided a good snack in the cab on the way home.
For the last two days we have been going to the local park near to our hostel on Recoleta and the kids have really enjoyed it. It is big enough to have fun in and keep themselves amused but not too big that they worry about what to do next.
For the first day Little Miss 8 was worried that she wouldn't make friends but after overcoming her shyness, by the second day she was Little Miss Popularity. The kids were all trying to speak to her in Spanish and ask her questions and while she couldn't answer them, that didn't stop them from having a bunch of fun making trains down the slide and having seesaw wars!
I was watching Master 3 and he was babbling away to the poor unsuspecting kids in English not caring whether they understood him or not. It was a funny sight to see!
My guess is that they will want to go back for a play tomorrow.
Lucky for us there are no shortages of parks for the kids to play in and I think it will take a while for the kids to get bored of them.
