Parks, Trails and Recreation
From amusement parks to bowling alleys, Wichita has something for everyone. If you're looking for some water-filled entertainment, try the Rock River Rapids which houses a giant tree house-themed water spray ground, six crazy water slides and more. All Star Adventures offers a variety of rides, along with miniature golf, a driving range and an arcade.
Corn fields are abundant across Kansas, so every fall, area farmers take advantage of their crops and open their fields to the public after plowing "mazes" through the tall stocks. Pumpkin patches also provide a fun outing in the fall.
The Greater Wichita YMCA has nine sites well stocked with workout equipment, pools and indoor basketball courts. The North branch even has an outdoor aquatic center with a wave generating pool!
