  • This was a fun little park to go to. There was a zipline in the park area and a place to buy drinks and snacks. The carousel was $3 each kid or $10 for.the day. The balloon ride is free, you just have to sign an online waiver and wait until you get a text. We waited almost 2 hours, but we did the carousel, playground and saw the garden while waiting. The garden (food lab) has a banana tree! That was awesome. They also.had a little free library, so my boys were able to pick put books.
  • We visited this place on Irvine Global Village event day. Vast park with 7 parking lots. They have 2 attractions, the main one is the great park balloon and a carousel. You need to scan a QR code and submit waiver form to ride these. Balloon is free ride but has long queue, so check-in early and ensure you submit details with the staffs , you will get a notification when it's your turn. I have uploaded pic of balloon timings. Carousel is $3 for single ride and $10 for full day pass.
