Ayden (4yrs) and Dylan's (2yrs) 1st time playing in snow and they had a blast!
1st timer Tips to Soda Springs (that I learned):
Check their website for times.
Ask the parking attendants where to park, cause if they don't pay attention, they'll make you move.
Take the sleigh ride directly to Planet Kids and buy a ticket there.
Don't need tickets for planet kid tubes. Each kid ticket includes an adult guardian.
Bring a backpack with your own food and drinks.
Bring snow toys, cause they kids ended up wanting to play in the snow more than ride.
It was a holiday weekend, so it was crowded. Wish they used iPhones with Square's credit card readers and a digital waiver so we could have spent less time in line.
Ditch the DSLR
I brought all this gear including my Canon 7D DSLR with 24-70 2.8L, but I ended up just using two small cameras. The GoPro Hero 2 (using that for the 1st time too) and Canon s100.
