My son is 12 1/2. He loved it. He met kids from all over the US, from Chicago, Missouri etc. He even got 2 buddies email addresses. At night, Carnival has a disco just for 12 to 18 years old - No adults allowed except Carnival Counselors. He loved that! If your kids are different ages, don't worry Carnival will have something that they like - there is too much for them not to like something. Have a Great time! Wish I was going again.
