You’ve probably seen this epic video of a father recreating his daughter’s favorite amusement park ride. But if you haven’t, here you go.
So maybe you don’t have the energy (or time) for all that, but you can still take your kids on a virtual trip to your favorite amusement parks.
Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.
