Kid's Kingdom and The Missing Fantasy Fountain!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker C&C Properties

So what Happened to the big Volcano at Kid's Kingdom?

IT'S GETTING A MAKEOVER!!

Kids Kingdom Fantasy FountainFor a while many here in Redding, CA have been wondering what's happening over at Kid's Kingdom and its iconic Fantasy Fountain, especially during these long, hot summer days!

I realize times have been tough for our local economy but really? No Fantasy Fountain, just before summer! BUT NOT TO WORRY...It will be back, this time just safer.

Anybody with young children (including myself) have terribly missed Kid's Kingdom Fantasy Fountain, one of Redding's unique recreation places, especially if you're a child!

For those new to Redding, Kid's Kingdom is located next to Enterprise Park in South-East Redding and if you go today, you'll still see the wooden fortress but not the famous volcano! The spray features, water cannons and rumble of pending volcanic eruption have generated thousands of exciting squeals, laughter and good memories over the course of 10 years.

Makeover In Progress

I'm pleased to report that Fantasy Fountain is recreating itself, it's getting a makeover, complete with a NEW VOLCANO and WATER SPRAY PARK! The goal: A safer and efficient place for our children.

I'm glad for all of you who like such a thing.  Personally I think places like Disney are the most unhappy places on earth.  I'd rather be a stand up comic on a cruise ship.  lol

Come on, stop fixing things to make them safer... Kids love these things just the way they are. Hopefully it will be just as fun for the kids, they have been ruining parks left and right here with safety.

Thank heaven the fantasy fountain is just being rehabilitated.  It sound like it was a major attraction in Redding.

@Chris, Dick, Erica, Todd and Evelyn: Thanks for stopping by...yeah this is a very big deal here in Redding. As a parent, I wish there was more local attractions for our little ones but we're getting there.
