Spring break is right around the corner!  While some families head out of town for the week, other prefer to stay right here in the Texoma area.

Thankfully, Wichita Falls has several family-friendly attractions, that will allow you to entertain your children while they’re out of school on spring break.  From racing go-karts to exploring the great outdoors, this town has enough activities that kids of all ages will enjoy.

I’ve compiled a list of a few fun places right here in Wichita Falls, that you can take your kids to over spring break.  If you have any suggestions or want to add to the list, feel free to comment on our Facebook page or message us on the station app.

Urban Air Trampoline & Adventure Park


I don’t think that there’s a single kid in the entire Texoma area who doesn’t love Urban Air Trampoline & Adventure Park. This place has something for every age group.  Not only can kids jump around on their trampolines for hours, but they can tackle their obstacle courses as well.

Skilled basketball players can shoot some hoops while on the trampoline, in the Slam Dunk Zone, while those who are more adventurous can try their gravity-defying ropes course.  There’s also an indoor playground for the little ones who aren’t quite ready for the main attractions yet.

Family Fun Zone

Family Fun Zone has enough activities to wear anyone out for a day.   Not only can the kids race each other on the go-kart track, but they can also compete against each other on the miniature golf course.  Baseball and softball players can practice for the upcoming season at their outdoor batting cages.

Rain and thunderstorms won’t spoil the fun here.  There are plenty of indoor attractions as well.  Not only do they have a video arcade with the latest games, but they have a roller skating rink, and laser tag as well.

Lucy Park

Every kid’s favorite subject in school is recess.  That’s what makes Lucy Park a great place to take the kids for a day.  The city park has three different playgrounds to choose from where the younger ones can run around.

The older kids can shoot some hoops on one of their many basketball goals, or play volleyball on one of their sand volleyball courts.  There’s even an 18-hole golf course where they can play some disc golf on.

You can also have a family picnic at the park, and even fire up some burgers or hot dogs on one of their many BBQ grills.

The Village Bowl

Bowling is a fun activity for all ages, and The Village Bowl is the perfect place for it.  Not only does this bowling alley have 16 different bowling lanes to choose from, but they have automatic scoring as well.  Since each lane can accommodate up to eight players, the entire family can join in on the fun.

The Village Bowl also has youth bowling leagues for the kids in the fall and summer months, where they can both compete and make new friends.

The Riverbend Nature Center

Not only is the Riverbend Nature Center fun, but it’s educational as well.  Kids of all ages can learn about nature, and explore the great outdoors.  During their Spring Break Animal Show on March 15th, and 17th children will be able to learn about wildlife and see the creatures up close.

For those who have a true love for the great outdoors, the Riverbend Nature Center offers their Spring Break STEAM Camp, where children ages 6 to 11, can explore both the forest and nature trails.  They’ll even have the opportunity to construct, paint, and design their own projects as well.
