One of the largest modern parks inside Beijing's Second Ring, Longtan Park boasts elegantly arched bridges, towering rock formations – and a whole lot of recreational activities for kids. Take a duck-shaped boat (30-60RMB) to the island, where kids can zip around on their rollerblades or ride in the Challenger, a virtual spaceship not designed for the claustrophobic (15RMB). The play area has an indoor playground (20RMB), an outdoor play area and the requisite rides – trampolines, mini ferris wheel and helicopter rides (all 8RMB). Bigger kids can enjoy the plethora of Chinese gym equipment, badminton courts, sporting and games quarters. A climbing wall and an old MiG fighter jet complete the picture of unabashed fun.
