Not one but two giant mazes, a stingray petting pool, a four-story science puzzle paradise – just a fraction of attractions for kids in Panama City Beach! Fall in love with fun at Coconut Creek, mini-golf at Barnacle Bay or the charm of the of amusements along the beach. If you’re not down for go-karts and putt-putt, no worries – the beach isn’t the only all-ages game in town! Shipwreck Island Water Park has everything from the toddler-friendly Tadpole Hole to racing slides and “river” rapids, while the popular Gulf World Marine Park can fill your day with animal shows and exhibits, and even the chance to shadow the Park’s animal trainers for a day. Nature-lovers love our eco-tours and the wilderness of Camp Helen and St. Andrews state parks. Or take the family to gaze at 400+ bizarre exhibits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium.
For the wise-in-years but young-at-heart, attractions in Panama City Beach let you swim with dolphins or launch yourself at 100 mph from a giant slingshot 300 feet in the air. And, if you’re going to stay a while, check out The Science and Discovery Center of Northwest Florida where they will educate and inspire children and adults through hands-on, interactive exhibits and programs that promote discovery of science, technology, and history.
