The entertainment venue features a kids-only roller coaster and the Max Flight Simulator, also known as “the roller coaster of the future.” Another kid-friendly destination is the tropical-themed Coconut Creek Family Fun Park fit with a mini-golf course and a giant labyrinth.

For indoor fun, head over to the Emerald Coast Mirror Maze & Laser Craze at Pier Park and engage in fun group activities like laser tag. With 30,000-square-feet full of trampolines, a foam pit, a climbing wall, and more, also add Just Jump Trampoline Park to your family trip itinerary.

Fun for the Entire Family

Get up close to some of the local wildlife on the Panama City Beach Sea Screamer. Its two-hour cruises offer a narrated look at Shell Island and other local sights. Be on the lookout for dolphins, marine life, and shipwrecks. 

Rated one of the best waterparks in the nation, Shipwreck Island Waterpark appeals to both the young and young at heart. The 15-acre park features several water slides, pools, a lazy river, and one-of-a-kind attractions, like The Great Shipwreck, which features a zipline that starts at a sailing ship replica and ends with a big splash in the pool.

Fun for the whole family, SkyWheel, a state-of-the-art Ferris wheel, gives you a bird's eye view of the beaches, parks, and attractions. Open day and night throughout the year, you and your family are sure to be comfortable in the climate-controlled gondolas.
