Our family (kids ages 5, 3, and 3-months) visited Fairytale Town during our 4-day getaway to Sacramento. We'd planned to go to Fairytale Town right after going to the Zoo because it's right across the street and the two together (you could also add in Funderland) would make a really great day. But there was a serious heatwave going through town so we opted to break it into 2 days and go to the Zoo first thing one morning ahead of the heat and then Fairytale Town the second day ahead of the heat.
Our kids loved it. So many places we tend to take our kids when we're traveling are places where we constantly have to say "no." For example, the Railroad Museum is great, but I'm constantly telling my kids no. No, you can't climb.... No you can't touch that..... I didn't have to say no once at Fairytale Town. The kids just play and let their imaginations run.
We also had the Zoo Keys, which allow the kids to actually listen to the stories and songs. I'd say adding this is a real plus and totally worth it.
I can totally see this being a locals place for parents to gather and let their kids play. Get the annual pass! We drive through Sacramento frequently on long road trips between Tahoe where we live and Santa Barbara where my in-laws live. We're planning to make Fairytale Town a regular stop to let the kids play on on roadtrips since it is just a few miles off the freeway.
The food was also really reasonably priced.
Loved it. Very cool place.
