Tips for writing reviews:

  • Think broad: What can you review? An attraction? Of course. An activity? Definitely. A restaurant? You got it. My neighborhood park? Now you’re catching on. Think where you’ve been with the kids in the last 3 months and I’m sure you’ll have more than plenty to add.
  • Think age: Some families have kids of different ages, share about the activity from your perspective, but mention what age your kids were when you experience this attraction with them.
  • Think details: Resist generalizing in your reviews. Provide details that you think would make a difference to families.

– Attractions: Highlights or low-lights? Long lines? Best time to visit? Available food options? Tips for saving money?

Restaurants: How was the food quality, noise level, service, prices, wait time for a table and food? Special play areas or activities for kids?

Hotels: What was the pool like? What other amenities highlight or lowlights? What were the rooms like? What did you like and not like? Kid programs or special features? Food options? Location? Value?

  • Think You. Express who you are. It’s more fun to know the family behind the experience rather than a list of facts. Tell stories that illustrate your point, or get us laughing with you.
  • Think expert. Whether you’re a local or have first hand experience, your point of view counts. So express it boldly.
  • Think visual. A photo can speak a thousand words. Have a picture. Add a photo together with your review.Splash Pad

    I submitted 10 reviews and I’m wondering if I can receive the gift card? How does this work? Thanks for the great website.
