Survival Tips for Your Next Amusement Park Visit
Are you planning to visit an amusement park this summer? Don’t head off without some prior planning. The time you spend getting ready before you go can save a lot of headaches later on. Make your day the best it can be with these theme park survival tips.
Know the Rules
All parks have rules and restrictions in place to keep visitors safe. Note rides that have height limitations or may require kids to be accompanied by a parent. Find out if there are items that you can’t bring into the park so that you know what you can pack and what you’ll need to buy. Discuss these rules with your kids and set guidelines of your own. Explain your expectations regarding behavior during the trip and at the park to minimize disputes once you’re there.
Set yourself up for amusement park success with these essentials in a backpack or fanny pack:
• Bottled water
• Spending money
• Fully charged mobile phones
• Extra clothes
• A first aid kit
Also make sure to have a detailed plan that includes what to do if the family gets separated. Take photos of everyone just in case you need help finding each other. While you’re snapping pictures, take one of where you park the car so that you can find it at the end of the day.
Avoid the Crowds
Try to arrive at the park shortly before it opens. Being first in line gives you a clearer shot at popular rides and makes it easier to navigate. Talk to ride attendants to find out the best times to enjoy your favorite attractions.
Budget Your Time
Chances are everyone will start to get tired after hours of walking and going on rides. Avoid fatigue with planned rest breaks throughout the day. If you’re staying in a hotel nearby, consider going back for a power nap to recharge before heading back to the park.
