If you’re yet to spend a summer visiting one of the many themes parks around the world, here are 7 reasons you should book your tickets now!
1. There’s something for everyone
One of the biggest draw cards for visiting a theme park is the variety it offers. There’s something for everyone in the one venue. There are rides, entertainment, games and food for the young and old, so no one misses out. Adrenaline junkies or those who like to be in the slow lane will also find plenty to do that ticks all their boxes.
2. You’ll burn plenty of calories
You might be surprised at just how many calories you’re able to burn whilst visiting a theme parks. Large theme parks will require you to walk from one ride to another which will could help you burn about 1000 calories. You’ll also be burning calories while screaming on all the scary rides. And the best part? you’ll be having so much fun you won’t even realise you’re exercising!
3. You can get discounted entertainment
If you love visiting theme parks, buying a seasons pass will see you receive discounted entertainment throughout the year. A season pass to some parks will provide you with unlimited access, and for others it will give you admission to several participating parks under the one pass. Buying a season pass is also an extra incentive to drag your kids away from video games to spend some quality time outdoors with the family.
4. There are plenty of theme parks to visit
Water parks in Melbourne, drive through safari in New Jersey, Disneyland in California, PortAventuraresort in Spain – there are literally hundreds of theme parks all around the world to visit. Even the fussiest of people will find a theme park they enjoy. We thinkIt would make one great bucket list to visit them all!
5. You’ll get a good dose of vitamin D
Vitamin D deficiency is becoming a serious problem as more people spend longer days indoors and consciously limit their sun exposure. While sun protection is important, low levels of vitamin D can have a serious impact on your health, especially with yourbones and muscles. Heading to a theme park means you’ll be spending most of the day outside and soaking up a decent dose of vitamin D.
6. You’ll come home in a better mood
Even if the kids have been little terrors, you’ll return home from a theme park in a better mood. The adrenaline rush and higher altitude will release plenty of endorphins making you feel more energised and alert. Nothing better than coming home from a day out with the family feeling amazing, rather than totally drained.
7. It’s an opportunity to bond with your family
Our lives are so busy that spending quality time with the family for many households has become a rarity. Going to a theme park is an opportunity for you to drag the entire family out for one memorable day of entertainment. Trust us, both the big and little kids will love you for it!
