Brooke and I are not typically “party animals” though you probably can‘t tell by the summer agenda. However, the most recent stop on our activity list was a place full of fantasy. No, it was not like “the plane, the plane” Fantasy Island. We visited the next best thing, Lincoln Park’s very own Fantasy Kingdom.
A couple of years back, Brooke had a princess party at Fantasy Kingdom and there was non-stop fun for the kids as they dressed-up and ran around the boutique-style miniature town. Tried and true, it was definitely a kiddie haven. And as we saw this past weekend at another birthday celebration, Fantasy Kingdom is still a top pick.
It doesn’t surprise me that the toys, dress-up clothes and play structures at Fantasy Kingdom are still in pristine condition. I’d say that it’s partially due to some basic rules. For instance, you must have on a pair of socks and sanitize your hands before stepping one foot into the play area. But for the most part, this family owned businesses’ preservation and overall success can be attributed to a huge amount of care and professional hospitality. Always welcoming and attentive, the Allen family runs a well-functioning play-land that is great for private parties, public play times and special holiday events.
So get ready to see sparkling fairy princesses, knights in shining armour, and “a magical world of make believe” (rest in peace Mr. Rogers) as Fantasy Kingdom proves to be a wonderful world of fantasy right at your finger tips.
Brooke’s Blog: Fantasy Kingdom is fun! It makes me happy because I had my 4th birthday there and all of my friends came. I love the dress-up part and giving pretend flowers to my mom and dad.
