Your kids’ favorite animals, cartoon characters and fairy tale legends come to life in Storyland, a charming fairytale theme park adjacent to Carousel Gardens and the New Orleans Botanical Garden. Brimming with 26 larger-than-life exhibits, this storybook fantasy play area is inhabited by sculpted characters created by New Orleans’ finest Mardi Gras float makers. Your kids can climb aboard Captain Hook’s pirate ship, journey with Pinocchio into the mouth of a whale or scamper up and slide down Jack & Jill’s Hill. They can climb aboard an old fire engine or they can test their agility by crossing a pond on stepping stones.
