Kids and ATV Tours: Clothes, Safety, Snacks


There are a few activities that may involve a bit of extra preparation when kids are involved, and a guided ATV tour is a great example. It’s easy to bring children of most ages along for these kinds of ATV tours, and parents will just need to do a bit of advanced planning to make sure everything is kosher here. 

At Mild to Wild Rhino Tours, we’re happy to welcome children three years of age and older for any of our Zion National Park ATV and UTV tours. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over several important preparation tips for parents planning to bring their kids on this or any other guided ATV or UTV tour. Let’s get started!

Proper (And Comfortable) Clothing

Firstly, just like for any adult, it’s important that children are dressed in the proper clothing for an ATV or UTV tour. We strongly recommend long pants and closed-toed shoes for everyone participating. You may also want to consider bringing a few extra layers of clothing, especially if you’re visiting Zion National Park during cooler months.

With kids, particularly young ones who might have shorter fuses, ensuring comfort is also important. The last thing you want is your child raising a fuss about tight clothing or an irritating label. Tagless shirts are always a good idea, and so are layers that can be easily taken off if kids get too hot or start to overheat from all the ATV fun.

Helmets And Other Safety Gear

Next, safety gear is an absolute must for any guided ATV tour – and when you work with a team like ours at Mild to Wild Rhino Tours, all of this is covered for you. But it’s still important to make sure that your child is comfortable with the helmet, as well as any other gear they may be wearing throughout the tour.

For very young children who might not be used to having a helmet on, consider having them wear it around the house for a while so they can get accustomed to it before you head out for the tour. This is also a great way to ensure that their helmet fits properly and does not slip off during your ATV adventure.

Pack Some Snacks

We all know kids can get hungry quickly, so make sure you bring some snacks or a light meal for your little ones before starting the tour. There are usually plenty of stops during our ATV tours to allow everyone to stretch their legs, so these can be great opportunities for kids to munch on something and get fueled up for the next part of the adventure.

You may also want to bring some water bottles and keep them in an easily accessible spot. This way, your kids can stay hydrated throughout the trip and prevent any unnecessary temper tantrums from happening.
