Wish kids that love to explore new things might want to visit the Explorium of Lexington. It is a highly interactive children's museum with multiple hands-on exhibits. Youngsters head to "The Bubble Zone" where they can blow all the bubbles they please and even enclose themselves in a giant bubble. The "Hold Your Horses" exhibit flaunts the Bluegrass Region's signature industry: horses. Kids can saddle up on life-size horse replicas or test their grooming skills in the stables. A kid favorite at the museum is the F-16 flight simulator, where physics and science collide in a fun, exciting and interactive way.

Kentucky Action Park is home to luscious landscapes full of thick forests and several rides and activities that any child might wish to enjoy. The Jesse James Riding Stables are the largest stables in the state and are a great place for kids of all ages and skill levels to take a horseback ride around the park. Little spelunkers have a blast touring the Outlaw Cave as they come across gorgeous stalactites and stalagmite formations. Children thoroughly enjoy riding the Alpine Slide down through the forest. Following a scenic chair lift to the top of the mountain, youngsters hop in their sled and head down the quarter-mile-long track, twisting and turning to the bottom. The more adventurous children can try the trampoline with attached bungee cords making all their back and front flips that much more exciting. Kids can also ride on the single or double go-karts or the bumper boats and cars.

Discover The Joy Of Helping A Lexington Child's Wish Come True

Wish kids can discover what used to be the only means of mass transportation at the Kentucky Railway Museum. Full of railroad artifacts and memorabilia, the railway museum features dining cars, handcars, track inspection cars, steam locomotive whistles and a ticket office all in a replica of the original New Haven Depot. Kids love heading off on a 22-mile excursion through Rolling Fork River Valley on the restored passenger train. Children love to interact with the actors over the course of the train ride as they need to be on the lookout for train robbers in the area and inform the lawmen on board if they see anything suspicious.
