I'm a social anthropologist working in marketing and I'm passionate about food, traveling to big cities and dogs. I like being that person everyone comes for recommendations especially if it is in Bogotá, a city I love dearly and where I been living intermittently for over 12 years. Instagram: @mariaisaturtle

If you are seeking some good old-fashioned fun, there is nothing better than a visit to an amusement park! Luckily for you, there are 4 in Bogotá where you can laugh and play like a kid.

Bogotá is a city that has it all. From cultural events and amazing food to iconic architecture and more, the city offers something for everyone. That is the case of these four amusement parks where you can have as much fun as you can possibly think of.

Salitre Mágico

This amusement park, named after Ciudad Salitre, the neighborhood where it is located, has 34 attractions for kids and grownups, including roller coasters, bumper cars, kids games, etc. The park also offers shows for kids and classic county fair games where you can win anything from cotton candy to an oversized stuffed animal. The park is famously known for its annual “Festival del Terror” (Horror Festival), which takes place during the whole month of October. Professional actors and stunt artists take over the park at night and take you on a scary walk around the haunted castle located in the north part of the park. This festival is a fully immersive experience that has become more famous over the years.

My favorite ride: it’s actually not a ride, but if you enjoy some classic fun and laughter, then you should go to the glass house. It’s really funny to see some people struggling to find their way out.

Mundo Aventura

The park was opened back in 1998 as a gift from the city’s chamber of commerce as a place where all the citizens could go and have a great time. It has since become the biggest amusement park in Bogotá with 13 hectares of rides, areas for games, food courts, and much more. Because the park belongs to a public entity, anyone can access it without paying. Once you want to jump on a ride, you’ll have to pay a single fee or get a bracelet if you want to try more than one ride. There is also a farm and an aquarium in the park where little kids can go and learn more about different types of animals.

My favorite ride: Ikaro and the Skycoaster are always great for a shot of adrenaline.

Parque Multiparque

This is a 100% outdoor park located in the north of the city, which is characterized by its more than 80 non-mechanical attractions for kids, big kart course, loads of jumping activities, and its outdoor restaurants and commercial furniture and design shops. The whole point of this park is that kids and grownups enjoy the nice weather while engaging in physical activities filled with fun. The park also has a farm where people can interact with animals and loads of really nice restaurants where you can enjoy your food under nice sunny weather.

My favorite ride: the go-karts in Multiparque are the best in the city!

Parque Jaime Duque

Created back in 1983 and named after the guy who envisioned it (an eccentric pilot) and was enthusiastic about building a cultural and recreational space where families could go and have a great time while collecting money for different non-profit organizations, the Jaime Duque Park is located a few minutes away from the city. This place holds a weird and eclectic amount of buildings like a replica of the Taj Mahal, an HK 136 plane, a medieval castle, and a dinosaur garden. There is also a zoo where you can go and see tigers, flamingos, and other different types of wild animals. The park also served in the past as a venue for artists like Jamiroquai, The Killers, and even Guns N’ Roses.

  • Make sure you dress comfy by bringing a spare set of clothes in case you jump into a water game.
