If the excitement of a morning at the waterpark wasn’t enough, our jaws dropped when we walked across the street to the Cultus Lake Adventure Park to spend the afternoon! We were at Disneyland Adventureland earlier this year, and couldn’t believe the similarities in atmosphere to Bear Country. This new theme park, only 75 minutes from our home in South Surrey, is a fun family day trip for kids of all ages (including their parents!) Even in the summer heat, it’s a shaded place to hang out.
I liked that the park is open to everyone, and those who choose to go on rides can purchase tickets or–better yet– unlimited access wristbands.
Here we share our favourite parts for a 5 year old. There were many more thrilling roller coasters and Cloud Buster drops for the daredevils out there!
As I mentioned above, we immediately felt like we walked into a mini-Disneyland with delightful country-western features at every turn. I’m glad the developers chose to keep many of the large evergreen trees on the property.
I’m not a typical country-fair or theme park fan, as I find them overstimulating, dirty, and hot… but Cultus Lake Adventure Park is an entirely different experience with calm, cool, and spotless. The different levels of activities maximized the land use to include three levels, in a way I haven’t seen before.
Everyone knows that kids love ramps and bridges, and this was the first thing we explored. Little guy loved walking over all of the boardwalks and looking down at all of the activity below. He would have been happy just running around here for the rest of the day!
Because who doesn’t like a vintage, timeless ride? This one has some interesting characters— I chose to ride the dragon!
This was so fun to discover. It’s a network of rope bridges, underground tunnels, water features, ‘gold panning’ and observation deck.
The lower level of the park is devoted to an underground railway theme. We didn’t keep score, but sure did enjoy playing with our new friends!
The Ferris Wheel is a classic ride, and this one has an interesting western wagon design, and wasn’t tippy at all like others.
Ok, so this one was such a thrill– we went on it 5 times. I was scared in parts, but my son couldn’t get enough of the twists and turns. Definitely try this one out.
