A Note from your Publisher:

I took my boys to Conejo Valley Days in Thousand Oaks a few years back - twice in the same week actually. We arrived just before sunset and the weather was perfect, there was plenty of parking and we had a great time. My youngest won a cute stuffed dog playing playing the balloon dart game, he also played basketball but walked away empty handed from that one. This was their first time going and they had a blast. I have to give a shout out and thank you to Conejo Valley Days and Kastl Amusements for hosting us. We are most definitely going back for more Family Fun this year so we can ride even more rides, I know as some point I'm going to have to get on the Hyper Loop - Yikes!

The first thing my youngest said when we pulled in was that he wanted to ride the Farris wheel, it's the first thing we saw as we pulled into the parking lot. My response was "sure, but you're going by yourself, I'm not going."  Yeah, well I ended up riding the Hy-5 Ferris Wheel with him after all, #MomLife - I was doing OK till I looked over my shoulder and the whole bucket started to rock, yikes. It was lots of fun and I got some great photos while I was up there. My youngest loved the Pirate Island obstacle course - twice. Then we walked through Mardi Gras, it's two stories with a glass maze on the bottom and fun house mirrors up top with a slide to exit. We also rode the Cliff Hanger round and round and round. Afterwards we visited the Mister Softee Ice Cream truck (my personal favorite), it was sooo yummy. I had the foresight to get my son's ice cream in a bowl but had no idea I should have don't that for myself too, lol. I had a chocolate, chocolate dipped cone and since it wasn't hot out I though I could manage without making a mess - boy was I wrong, it was very tasty though. My advice, just suck it up and get the bowl, you'll thank me later. #MacKidEvent

Still wondering what there is to do?

I can share that there are plenty of rides for everyone in your family, from the littlest of littles to your thrill seeking teens you will not be disappointed. If you are hungry or need a quick snack there are lots of options too. 

  • Rides and food offerings may vary each year, but it's always a family fun thing to do in Conejo Valley - Thousand Oaks.
  • Also of note the live entertainment is back, offerings change each day, so check the schedule
