The National Museum of Play is a truly unique facility that any child might wish to visit. Dedicated to the history of games and trends that children love, this museum is full of classic toys of yesteryear and the new toys of tomorrow. Kids get a rush when they enter the “eGame Revolution” exhibit as they find old arcade games like Tetris and Pac-Man or vintage video games like Sonic the Hedgehog and SimCity. They can become their own superheroes in the “American Comic Book Heroes” exhibit where they go through a field of tests to secure super powers. Kids obtain super strength by absorbing “gamma” rays in the lab or super balance by walking across a steal beam with a kid-size city beneath them. Youngsters love traveling to Sesame Street and sitting on the 123 Sesame Street stoop or stopping inside the crayon-drawn house also known as Elmo’s World.

The Seneca Park Zoo is a great place for wish kids to spot big animals as they roam, or cast their eyes on the majestic Bald Eagle as it soars overhead. Lions, tigers, elephants, orangutans, sea lions, wolves, rhinos, snow leopards and polar bears all call the Seneca Park Zoo home, and children enjoy watching them interact in their habitats at the zoo.

The Kango Play Center is a kid favorite in Rochester. This play place has something for kids of all ages. The climbing structure has tunnels, ropes and slides that kids love running up and down. The bounce area is a great place for children to burn some energy and hop over obstacles or dive down an inflatable slide. They can hit the roller skating rink and race their friends around the circle before heading to the arcade.

Make A Splash In The Life of A Rochester Child

Nothing says fun like an amusement park and Seabreeze Park is the place to be for wish kids of all ages. Kids can’t decide which of the countless rides at Seabreeze Park to ride first, including four roller coasters, flying chairs, bumper cars, a log flume, a tilt-a-whirl and much more. Kids love cooling off at the water park in the 260,000-gallon wave pool. The young thrill-seekers can race to the top of the Helix water slide and then plummet four stories through a dark tunnel and into a gigantic bowl before spinning down to the splash zone.
