Kids - they grow up so fast, the next thing you know they’re going off to university. Here is our list of 10 places best experienced before your kids grow up and great for the whole family.

1. Ocean Park (Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong)

It’s the ‘World’s Seventh Most Popular Amusement Park’ and features the world’s largest aquarium dome which displays more than 5,000 fish. From roller coasters and water luge rides to dolphin attractions, there’s much to see and experience with the kids at the oldest theme park in Hong Kong.

2. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Orlando, Florida, USA)

If your kid is a Harry Potter fan, this will be the dream trip of their childhood. Live and breathe the life of Harry Potter at this unique amusement park which is actually two different lands – Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.  Travel between lands on the Hogwarts Express, ride with dragons and Hippogriffs and chow down on some fish and chips washed down with Butterbeer. If you didn’t understand what any of that meant, just ask your kid.

4. Rainbow Springs (Rotorua, New Zealand)

Set amongst beautiful native trees and streams, Rainbow Springs is home to a huge variety of New Zealand’s most precious inhabitants. Walk through the many free-flight aviaries, feed the biggest wild trout you will ever see and come face to face with New Zealand’s iconic Kiwi bird! This beautiful park is one of the most idyllic places to get your child acquainted with nature and wildlife in a fun and friendly environment.

5. Ghibli Musuem (Tokyo, Japan)

This is where fantasy and reality collide. The Ghibli Museum showcases the work of Japanese animation studio ‘Studio Ghibli’. This is the studio that brought us “Spirited Away”, “Princess Mononoke” and “Totoro”. Visiting the Ghibli Museum is like being “Alice in Wonderland”, and the wonder starts right at the entrance where you’re greeted by Totoro (which isn’t really the entrance). Your kids can be “Spirited Away” in the Central Hall where the wind whistles and the light shines through or hop on to the Cat Bus from “Totoro” which is specially designed for kids 12 and under.

6. The Skyline (Queenstown, New Zealand)

Take the gondola (the steepest in the southern hemisphere) up to Bob’s Peak to catch awe-inspiring panoramic views of the region at 450 metres above Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. Try the Skyline Luge, a gravity fuelled ride where you sit in a purpose built Luge cart and ride down the tracks at your own pace. There’s also The Ledge Bungy and Swing, paragliding and stargazing at the peak.

Spend the day hand-feeding kangaroos, joining in the interactive farm show, meeting wombats and have photos taken with koalas! This is a great Australian meet-and-greet experience for the whole family, in one fantastic day. Don’t wait till your kid has grown out of the magical joy of animals before making this trip.

This interactive attraction features superbly executed paintings in which visitors are invited to be part of dozens of fantastical scenes ranging from ‘Ride a Flying Carpert’ to ‘The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’.

9. The Original Legoland (Billund, Denmark)

Inspire wondrous awe in your child at this unique park located next to the original Lego factory. Teach them they can build anything, and their imagination is the only limit. Travel through ‘Miniland’, the heart of Legoland, and see the world in miniature! Spot famous buildings, capital cities and villages, all built with 20 million LEGO bricks.  There are a host of other side attractions and rides for the whole family and DUPLO Land for the very little ones.

10. Disneyland Park (California, USA)

You need to make a trip with the kids to Disneyland Park simply because, ‘It’s The Happiest Place on Earth!’ Who doesn’t want to visit the Happiest Place on Earth?   The trip can be tiring with young children, but seeing the joy on their faces meeting Mickey Mouse for the first time and visiting Cinderella’s Castle will make it all worth the while. And the nightly fireworks display right before the park closes is not to be missed. Don’t wait till your children have grown out of the magical joy of Disney till you make this trip. Then again, some of us never do grow out of it.
