Leofoo Village Theme Park doesn’t wind up on top of most itineraries when traveling to Taiwan. But if you’re traveling with kids and they’re looking for some more excitement beyond what the bustling cities can offer, Leofoo Village Theme Park is a great place to stop by.
Opened in 1979, it bills itself as the first fantasy world in Asia that combines an amusement park and a safari. Today, the park attracts guests of all ages, but children especially love it. Here’s why:
Hop on a tour bus and embark on an educational journey as you sneak a peek into the lives of the park’s resident animals such as tigers, lions, and monkeys—among many others. For the ultimate wildlife experience, check in to Leofoo Resort’s hotel, which boasts well-appointed safari-themed rooms. The best part? Each room has large windows, so you can view the resort’s free-range rather harmless animals like giraffes, zebras, and lemurs during your stay.
Now, what’s an amusement park without the rides? Leofoo Village has a lot of them littered across four themed zones namely Arabian Kingdom, African Safari, South Pacific, and Wild West. Youngsters will enjoy was rides like Bird Flight and Kid’s Catamaran. Meanwhile, thrill seekers will have a field day riding the three roller coasters in the park—Screaming Condor, Sahara Twist, and Little Rattler.
Taiwan can get really hot and humid during the summer months. So if you’re visiting between June and August, you might want to take a refreshing dip in the pool and frolic under the sun with the tykes at Leofoo Water Park. With a splashy playground and slides, you and the kids are sure to have tons of fun here! Don’t forget to slather on a good layer of SPF!
The dining experiences
Mealtime is never boring in Leofoo Village. Not only are the park’s restaurants scenic and picturesque, they also feature kid-friendly dishes, so you wouldn’t have to worry about your little picky eater. Of course, adults can indulge on sumptuous local or foreign fare. In fact, it’s a must! Stick around for a bit to catch the park’s performers entertain guests with a musical or tribal dance number.
The seasonal events
Believe it or not, Leofoo Village throws pretty awesome parties within the park! Visiting around October? Dress up the kids in their choice of costume in time for Halloween! Yep, the locals love celebrating the macabre holiday, so you might as well join in the fun! Christmas is quite a big deal, too, as the park transforms into a snowy village dotted with photo op zones.
