Should I Take My Kids To See The Wonder Park In Theaters Now?

Wonder Park In Theaters Now! We Have The Inside Scoop On The Movie. Should I Take My Child?

Every time another new movie comes out, everyone wonders if they should take their children. Will the movie be too scary? Will it cause nightmares? Is there cursing? Is something inappropriate going to happen that I will have to spend time explaining later? All of these questions swirl in our minds before we pony up for the popcorn, drinks and candy.  Our family was invited to a fun movie screening and carnival to celebrate the opening of Wonder Park in theaters!

I have to admit that I did hold a breath a bit during this movie. After being to movie after movie where the mother or father die, it was actually refreshing to me that THIS movie had a HAPPY ending! It’s a great movie for kids. It does have a bit of heartache in the movie, but just like in life, children need to know how to deal with heartache. I think that the movie shows a more realistic view of just how affected children are when someone in their life gets sick or ends up in the hospital. I know recently my hubby landed in the hospital for six days and my tween daughter was extremely worried about the entire situation. I think this movie can help kids see that sometimes they are worrying for nothing and that, just like in the movie, there is a very happy ending. I also think that kids will enjoy the entire Wonder Park (Wonderland) part of the movie. 

The movie is filled with fun characters and friends! Your family will be taken into the world of Wonderland and end up cheering for happiness and imagination. It’s a great story starter for parents and kids and a great jump into boosting our children’s imaginations! I would definitely follow up this movie with an empty box, pipe cleaners, glue, scissors , straws, popsicle sticks and markers! Let the creativity begin! Let the conversation begin! See you at the movies!

Wondering what the movie is about? Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive. One magical day, June is running through the woods to find her way home where she discovers an old roller coaster car and climbs inside. She suddenly finds herself in Wonderland, an amusement park she had created in her mind and put aside. All of her rides and characters are brought to life but are falling into disarray without her. Now, with the help of her fun and lovable park characters, June will have to put the wonder back in Wonderland before it is lost forever.
