Sands Kids Club

Sands Kids Club

Family vacations often turn into a getaway for the kids and even more work for the parents. In an effort to keep the little ones happy and entertained, the adults often go home feeling like they need a vacation from their vacation.

That’s why Sand Resorts has created the Sands Kids Club, a group designed to give your children plenty of fun activities to do on-site while the grownups get a little down time. Let the counselors at Sands Resorts show the little ones a good time with games, arts and crafts, dancing and other fun events while mom and dad get some time alone.

Each week features a new lineup of activities, and the list is posted so that families can check out the upcoming events and decide which ones might be best for the kids. Pool and beach games are alternated with arts and crafts and other outings to keep kids of all interests active and involved. They also make friends with other kids their age who are also guests, giving them playmates to hang out with at the resort.

Most Sands Kids Club activities are free, although some craft projects require a small fee for supplies. Ice cream socials, pizza parties and movie nights are often held in the evenings, so parents can even find time to do something special together while the kids mingle with people their own ages. The Sands Kids Club is open to children ages 5-12.

Parents are asked to register their kids for the chosen activities at the start of each day to give counselors a good head count and to sign any required permission slips. Then it’s time to relax and enjoy your stay while the little ones play.

Broadway Grand Prix Offers Fast, Fun Times!

logoGuests at the Sands Resorts family have plenty of entertainment options to choose from, but the Broadway Grand Prix at Broadway at the Beach may be the fastest and most fun.

Replacing the old NASCAR SpeedPark, the Broadway Grand Prix opened in 2014 to rave reviews from racing fans and fun-lovers. In addition to go-kart racing, the complex also features miniature golf, amusement rides, a high-tech arcade and much more.

Guests receive Buy One, Get One tickets to this popular attraction, which includes seven unique tracks for racing. Among the courses are the slower Family Track for parents and small kids and the more daring Fast Track and Speed Racer layouts for the more daring teens and tweens.

In addition to the racing action, Broadway Grand Prix features the popular Sky Coaster ride that gives passengers the thrill of flight and freefall. There are kiddie rides for the little ones, as well as two 18-hole mini-golf courses for those who prefer to putt than drive. A giant arcade features the latest interactive video games.

Broadway Grand Prix offers guests the option of buying individual ride tickets or purchasing an all-day pass with unlimited rides. Packages are also available for a limited number of ride tickets and a meal from the on-site snack bar. Broadway Grand Prix is also available for birthday parties and group functions.
