Sedgwick County Zoo

To inspire discovery, appreciation, and respect for animals and nature.

Reviewed By David S - Piedmont, South Dakota

I'm not particularly a zoo person - but my wife is. I was pleasantly surprised that this zoo was not only just right sized - could be visited entirely in 2-3 hours but it was also well thought out. Animals are separated by area of origin and efforts have been made to tailor both the animal enclosures and the human areas to reflect those geographic origins.

Reasonable admission price and free parking.

Located all but right next door to the Kansas Star Casino. Through the years we've enjoyed various aspects of this winery - wine tastings, dinner theaters, winery tours and classes. All were quite enjoyable. And, the wines are VERY good!

Real-life escape room games are new and fun way to spend time with friends and family! These adventure games challenge you to use the elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. Can you make it out before the timer expires?

Reviewed By ThiryLove - Rose Hill, Kansas

I booked this as something fun to do with my husband and kids during Christmas vacation. It was challenging and a lot of fun. I’m happy there are other options besides movies and dinner. I would definitely recommend booking a room and trying something new. We all really enjoyed it.

Botanica is a wonderful place to be alone with your thoughts. I would highly recommend visiting for the Christmas light display. The team spends a lot of effort turning the park into a winter wonderland.

High Park

Reviewed By NancyinDerby - Derby, Kansas

High Park is one of the best Derby parks. There is something here for everyone. So many teams use the fields on weekends. The children can enjoy the multiple playground areas. Fun seeing people enjoy the ponds for fishing or just watching the ducks and geese. There are so many walks to get in a good hike. You can just sit in the gazebo and enjoy the views!

Reviewed By REF W - Wichita, Kansas

Seating is pretty good no matter where you sit. Security check points are extremely slow and massively under staffed. Consession prices are better than most large concert venues.

The Keeper of the Plains

The Keeper of the Plains stands at the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers with hands raised in supplication to the Great Spirit. Renowned Kiowa-Comanche artist Blackbear Bosin donated the Keeper of the Plains to the citizens of Wichita on May 18, 1974.Since the sculpture's installation to commemorate the United States Bicentennial, it has become a symbol for the city of Wichita and a tribute to the local American Indian tribes. in 1974. A complete renovation of the sculpture and installation of the Keeper of the Plains Plaza now brings people out each evening to see the Keeper and the "Ring of Fire." The 44-foot Cor-Ten steel Keeper of the Plains statue is now 30 feet higher than before with its new pedestal,surrounded by a plaza which describes the Plains Indian way of life. The Keeper also serves as the focal point of an eight-year, $20 million restoration and river beautification project completed in May 2007. Pedestrians can access the area via two bow-and-arrow-inspired cable-stay bridges which span the Little and Big Arkansas rivers. Fire drums on boulders at the foot of the Keeper dramatically light the night. Plantings of sage, bottlebrush, medicinal herbs, prairie grasses, yuccas and cactus add to the sense of place and time. The area is free and open to the public year-round.

Reviewed By Denise W - Oklahoma City

This is a beautiful lighted night time delight. The Keeper of the Plains is well light and visible for a distance. There are paved sidewalks along the river where the Keeper of the Plains overlooks. There are beautiful bridges to the small island that hosts the Keeper of the Plains. On the small island is a display of Indian related trivia. There's also an exhibit of signs Indians used to communicate on caves and they tell a story along with the translation. We were there in February so the fire and water 'show' was not active. Would love to see them in action! Nice break for an evening stroll weather permitting.

The Museum of World Treasures, with more than 3,000 artifacts on three floors. Discover your inner explorer!

Reviewed By TheBlackCondor - Colorado Springs, Colorado

This place is really cool. They have a ton of stuff for such a small place, and I was told that's about 25% of the entire collection! They really should find a bigger building.

The first floor is all about history, with mostly complete dinosaur skeletons, and artifacts from ancient Greece, the Orient and Egypt (with two real mummies!).
The second floor is mostly about wars (WW1, WW2, Civil War, etc.). There's also a hall of presidents where they have little fact cards about each that I went through and was thoroughly entertained.

Third floor has some more WW2 stuff and some random things from movies and such. There's also a little room where kids have some stuff they can play with.

Unfortunately, my 3 y/o son got bored and I had to cut my reading short (there's a lot to read!) so we could go. I could have spent another hour at least looking at things. This place is nice for some of the exhibits, but most of the war stuff on the 2nd and 3rd floor wouldn't interest young children (or even teenagers, unless they are studying this particular subject at school and might have an interest).
