OK here is the deal,

My parents are flying up from Texas in a few weeks. We are looking for something fun to do. We are planning to go to go to Columbus on Saturday afternoon and spend the day in Columbus. That night we are going to a Columbus crew game. We are also planning to go to the Columbus zoo – not the waterpark section of the zoo – cause we got free tickets to the zoo. I have 2 kids boy and a girl who are 9 and 8 years old. Is there anything fun to do in Columbus or surrounding areas. FYI we have already done COSI.

Looking for fun hotels because we are spending the night or fun things to do before the soccer game and so on. Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Fun before soccer game -
The Water Park at the Zoo is a blast.
Spaltterpark paintball http://splatterpark.com/
Franklin Park Conservatory is free and has a cool butterfly exhibit: http://www.fpconservatory.org/

Tons of other parks. Downtown is a blast these days.
Easton Shopping Center is a cool outdoor deal to hang out.

go to a three A auto club and get a columbus visitors guide. It has all the things listed of what to do. Places to go, eat and stay. Don't miss cosi. It the number 1 science center in the country by parents magazine. The schools out there make trips there a lot.

How about one of those zipline tree tours in Hocking Hills or Loudonville? How about a trip to Amish land? Lehman's Hardware in Kidron is a hoot for your parents. Millersburg, Charm Etc. ( Not on Sunday)

North market
North Market is great. I would also recommend a lunch at BD's Mongolian Barbecue in Eaton Place. Your kids and parents will have a blast there. You pick your food, they cook it on a giant hot stone. If you tip them, they bang the gong (kids love that). It's a neat place and a relatively cheap meal.

There's a LOT to do in Columbus.

I would also consider a trip to a Columbus Clippers game. Their new park is one of the best you'll find.
