Main Event for combination bowling/ropes course/laser tag (they also have a video arcade).

Depending on their age, they may like the Institute of Texan Cultures (my kids started going when they were 4 and 7), Japanese Tea Gardens, Riverwalk and Museum Reach (go in the evening when it's cooler.

Oh gosh. You will probably be glad to hear that I looked at Top Golf and have decided against it. We finally got our rental booked and I noticed that the Chuck E. Cheese that was recommended is very close to where we will be staying. (78259 Zip Code). I also noticed a Main Event nearby, so we will probably go to Chuck E. Cheese for a little while and then head over to the Main Event if anyone gets too bored there. Thanks for the laugh, (sorry that your legs are probably beyond tired by now from the standing in line!), LOL.

That Main Event sounds pretty good. I will certainly check out their website. Thanks.

About how long does it take to see the exhibits at the Institute of Texan Cultures? Are the Japanese Tea Gardens by the Zoo? What is Museum Reach? Thanks again.

And another vote for Cool Crest mini golf.

I have never been to Schlitterbahn. Water parks are fun, but I am not a strong swimmer, so I have to say that Sea World tops any waterpark for me. Besides, Sea World has sea animals you can't see just anywhere AND a waterpark, Aquatica, a short walk away. What is not to love?

I will have to look into Cool Crest. Thank you.

ITC: about 1.3-2.5 hours, depending on how you move.

The Tea Gardens are very close to the Zoo, and are also in Brackenridge Park (don't forget to ride the train if you go)

Japanese Tea Garden - San Antonio Parks Foundation

Museum Reach is an extension of the Riverwalk opened a few years ago, extending the Riverwalk to the Pearl Brewery Complex: https://www.sanantonio.gov/portals/0...seum_Reach.pdf
