Amusement parks are recreational locations where families can visit for a weekend of exciting activities, great fun, and bonding. Whether you are an out-of-town vacationer or a local resident living within the city limits of such popular entertainment venues, you will have the pleasure of forgetting about the daily grind and enjoying yourself to the fullest.
Some of the most popular amusement parks in America includes:
Although there are hundreds more, these are some of the most popular among world travelers and ordinary Americans. According to statistics, the Magic kingdom Theme park was visited by 20.96 million people in 2019.
Making a weekend of amusement park fun obviously eradicates the stronghold of boredom over the lives of many families once affected by the post pandemic shutdown. Waiting a hold year just to be together was trying time that we thought would never end.
Enjoying the atmosphere of a make-believe world will help us families forget about fear and anxiety which accompanied one of the worst times in modern day history: Covid 19.
To enjoy an amusement park to the fullest, you must provide your family with some of the most memorable experiences.
First, I hope you bring a camera. It would be a mistake not to. Refuse to miss some of the most creative experiences in a lifetime. Capture those moments with a good camera or a quality camera phone. iPhones are the best, not to be bias, but other high-level brands will do wonders as well.
Nevertheless, to be able to place those moments in pictures into a beautiful photo album will provide enjoyment for decades and generations to come.
The Joy Ride Experience
Going on a wild ride with someone can create a bond that will last forever. The thrill of sharing the same emotion with a family member or friend who you have been at odds with can prove very valuable to the relationship.
I remember riding going on a joy ride with significant others and found it very insightful. During those times, you really can get to know what is in the soul of a person. You get to see them at their most vulnerable moments.
You can see that beneath that stiff exterior there is a person with a tender heart or a person who can really laugh and have fun with you. This person can be your teenage son, daughter, your wife, or in-laws. Begin noticing these moments. Such times may provide opportunities for releasing misconceptions about the person and forgiving them or yourself.
The Wonderful Custom Experience
Dressing up as your favorite western character, superhero, or actor from another era are exciting ways to show your appreciation for the people and things you value in life.
Most amusement parks have a variety of custom exhibitions. For example, if you like dressing up in customs from the old wild, wild west, you can become characters such as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday who participated in the Tombstone encounter.
This life changing experience will provide many opportunities for great photographic moments that will live forever.
Game Exhibitions: A Time for Winning
Make sure to play plenty of games. Don’t just be an observer and walk by. Play some games and enjoy adding the winning experience to the vacation. Whatever you win provide opportunities for more photos
Once upon a time, when I am visiting Six Flags Great America with a bus load of my field trip students, I won one of the biggest stuffed bears on the planet. I still have the bear and the photos that it provided for greater memories.
Celebration of Creative Food
There is no going to an amusement park without experimenting with the delicious, creative food by which venders entice the crowd. Enjoy the mouthwatering taste of a fried pickle, or baked sauerkraut, or footlong corn dog with raisons inside.
Walking and eating provides more picture taking and more opportunities for filling your photo albums with unforgettable memories.
Good food is the hallmark of a fun and exciting day at an amusement park. If you are a party pooper and do nothing else, to have a taste of delicious food will give you a good experience.
Things to Observe in the Amusement Park
Going on rides, playing games, and eating delicious food are not the only opportunities to enjoy our amusement park experience to the fullest. Observing the wonderful people and things around us is also a delightful experience.
I have always been an avid people watcher. Boredom goes out of the window wherever I am observing people interacting in an exciting place such as amusement park. The sight of some people just excites you. Others give you a feeling of weirdness. Still others will probably leave you with no experience at all.
However, if some ordinary person interests you, don’t take pictures without permission. You might find yourself on the rough end of a disagreement.
But if a person is an entertainer at the center of attention, you can take pictures but keep them securely in your album. Don’t sell or commercialize such images. You may end up with a case dealing with copyright issues.
In an amusement park, you will discover several exciting exhibitions. Some will be demonstrations, highlighting extraordinary skills and abilities. Other exhibitions will feature semi-popular musical acts and localized bands. Stand still for a while and enjoy the sounds. Dance if you are daring enough to express yourself in that way.
Whenever I am at an amusement park, I grab some delicious food and sit around listening to or observing some live performances that leave me in shock and awe. I take pictures and share them with family and friends when I get back home.
Landmarks and Monuments.
If you are an out of towner, your trip to the amusement park will not be complete without, pictures of nearby landmarks or monuments. These are the times which provide many opportunities for taking photos with different family members and friends.
Most of all, these popular locations tell everyone that you are there, especially if you are sending photos of the vacation to family and friends back home.
An amusement park vacation is the solution to a boring stretch of time during the year, that you and your family want to get away to create everlasting memories together. Take advantages of such an experience. No one knows what tomorrow may bring.
