Bufalo Park has closed down and is now available only under reservation for events. However, since you can rent it for events such as birthday parties, etc. we've left this page up so you can read about it.
Buffalo Park is located on the 4th ring, just north of Santa Cruz’ famous Equipetrol neighborhood. A huge complex, kids will have great fun as they bounce around in jump houses (please take your shoes off), bounce on a trampoline (it has a safety net), play in the sandbox, take a train ride around the complex, or ride a mechanical bull (slowly and safely).
There are also go-karts, a food court, playgrounds, and several great stores (mostly kids clothing and toys), as well as a mini firing range, bungee swing, and two playgrounds. Cool off in the indoor food court or shop for great toys, kids clothes and souvenirs at one of several shops.
All of this is housed under a huge “jatata” (palm frond) roof which covers the entire indoor portion of the complex. Inside you’ll also find a stage. You can watch an amateur comedy show, music group or play bingo.
Open all day, Buffalo Park is great for kids who have been cooped at home or in a hotel. For about $2 (yes, that’s just TWO) dollars, your kids can enjoy lots and lots of healthy fun and exercise. The ticket booth is to your right just before entering the playground by the jump houses and go-kart area. You have to pay to enter and a wristband will be placed on all kids wrists.
As you walk in through the main entrance, the food court is directly in front of you. The stores are to your left and right. The mechanical bull, bungee swing, firing range, train ride, small kids sandbox / playground are all to the left side of the entrance. Stay all day or just a couple of hours.
Oh, and while you’re at the sandbox / playground near the bungee swing, get up close and personal with one of the parabas (macaws) you’ll find right under the tree. They aren’t caged (their wings are clipped) and you can walk right up to them or sit back and watch their antics. Please don’t get TOO close or poke your fingers at them – they have very strong beaks and can give you quite a serious, nasty bite.
Sundays are bit noisy and crowded. Weekdays and Saturdays are much nicer days to go. Take a couple of changes of clothes – the kids tend to get very sweaty, especially on the jump houses.
