Kids on the Fly has always been a great distraction from the delays and stopovers at O’Hare International Airport. The Chicago Airport is always filled with travelers and full of activities. Hence, it is, without doubt, one of the busiest airports in the world.
Recently, we had a trip from grandma’s house in Chicago to our house in the big New York City. As expected, we found ourselves in the busy O’Hare International Airport. I was very pissed as the security guard ushered us to the Kids on the Fly zone in Terminal 2. Unfortunately, my angry moment does not always last because we are going to a play area.
Kids on the Fly is an interactive zone of the children’s museum. The design is as real as a runway itself and children often have that feeling when they are there. Not only children are thrilled by this architectural zone but older ones too.
There is a colorful incline that serves as the entrance. It is always full of activities because it is the source of play for many. Kids move into the lifted cockpit, assume to board and pilot a play plane, control traffic from a height, pay attention to the recordings of the air traffic control, fake moving baggage on the runaway, and experience a great view of real landings after take-off.
This has been a fun-filled section that has not made many worry about the delays in the airport. Especially for kids, stopovers could be a difficult one to handle because they don’t even understand the reason for the delay. However, thanks to Kids on the Fly – they have a reason to want to stop over and enjoy some fake trips before their actual trips in some hours.
