New for 1997: KidZville is a town filled with rides, activities, shows, games and attractions. Built on the site of the former Hanna-Barbera Land, KidZville features an interactive play area, a kiddie coaster and a town square, in addition to the Hanna-Barbera rides that remain.

At the Kidz Construction Company, children can crawl through a full-size cement mixer, explore a real dump truck and crawl up and through a crane tower. Taxi Jam Coaster, which parents and children can ride together, has a speed chase theme.
