Any time is a good time to organize a family plan. Kids love these little 'getaways' and, to be honest, we adults like them as much or more than them because they help us to disconnect and get out of our routine. Luckily, the leisure offer in Madrid for adults and children is very wide and there are many activities that can be done throughout the year.
If you have a free weekend and you are looking for ideas to spend it together, take note of these five essential plans, you will have a great time!
To start, we propose the best leisure in Madrid for the whole family: an endless adventure in Parque de Atracciones Madrid. Kids and adults can enjoy days full of fun and entertainment at the best prices with all the safety and health measures in order to spend a great day.
Rides with some of the most famous characters of the cartoons they love, such as Sponge Bob or the Paw Patrol, shows for all ages, a little bit of nature... nothing is missing! In fact, there are even walkers from The Walking Dead, and that's as far as we can read!
As you can see, we have proposals for the whole family, with more classic rides and other more modern ones, experiences in which everyone will have a 'scary' time, and the possibility of choosing an option with accommodation to make the most of the weekend. If you buy your tickets on our website, you will also enjoy juicy discounts and save time in lines, all advantages!
If there are a lot of you, you can benefit from discounts for groups of 20 people or more, and there is also the possibility of celebrating birthdays or first communions with everything organized in the park.
And as if all this were not enough, in summer everyone will love our water rides. You won't be able to say we don't offer you a complete plan!. You won't even have to come by car, just take metro line 10 and get off at Batán!
If you like your family getaways to have an educational component in addition to enjoyment, there's no doubt that the Zoo Aquarium of Madrid is one of the best options you will find. There is nothing a kid likes more than to be surrounded by animals that are not usually around and, in addition, to learn many things about them.
Talks by their specialists to learn everything about their behaviour in nature and the care they require in captivity, skills exhibitions and a wide range of species, including marine species thanks to its large and complete aquarium, which will make your visit to the center will become an absolutely unforgettable memory for everyone.
The Felipe VI Forest Park, located in Valdebebas (northeast of the city), is one of the most recently created parks and has become one of the most popular leisure sites in Madrid for kids and not so young people.
It is a very large space of about 500 hectares, whose silhouette represents a tree and is structured in the form of a maze. That is why it is a very good plan to go with kids any weekend, because they have plenty of space to play and enjoy the outdoors.
In addition, it has three giant slides in which kids will not stop sliding all day. But to reach them you must first pass through a row of vertical logs, ropes and a red net, as if it were a 'military style' gymkhana.
This place, unknown to many families despite the fact that it was inaugurated in 2015, is open every day of the week and access is completely free. In summer they are open from 8:00 to 20:00.
If you are looking for a good leisure plan with kids in Madrid, you can't miss the Bosque Encantado of San Martin de Valdeiglesias. It is a theme park and botanical garden located on a hill, with trails and even a waterfall. You can visit it with the little ones any weekend, it will be a magical experience for them.
Its main attraction is its living plant sculptures. You read that right. The bushes are molded with figures of all kinds: animals, dinosaurs, fairy tale characters.... It's really cool!
They will have a lot of fun, surrounded by nature and being outdoors. Adults can relax and, might as well, take some super nice photos as a souvenir and even to share them on social media.
It's open all year round from Thursday to Sunday, and also on holidays and long weekends, because it is fully designed to enjoy the best family entertainment in Madrid.
One of the best leisure plans in Madrid today is visiting MUNCYT, the National Museum of Science and Technology. It is especially prepared for families to visit with children because it is clearly oriented towards the youngest members of the family.
The entrance to the outdoor park is free -not only for kids, but also for parents-, although there are other areas where you have to pay a small fee.
It is a very interesting museum that shows how technology has evolved in a very entertaining way, so that they can touch and experiment with each machine. In this way, they will learn, for example, how clouds or tornadoes are formed, participate in workshops or visit the planetarium. There is also a play area with monitors.
The best of all is that you have two options to choose from, since there is one location in Madrid city and another in Alcobendas.
