One of the best things about going to amusement parks is the food! Sure, you could get all that in a food court of your Mall but nothing beats walking around a huge park all day. Burning lots of calories and finally sinking into a nearby chair and digging into a well-earned slice of pizza. The joy of eating cotton candy while walking around, getting Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream and apples dipped in caramel is something you can only experience at an amusement park. Large cans of coke with unlimited refills, Donald Duck’s waffles seem like ambrosia after a hard day of rides!


2. Memories

An outing to a theme park is a very memorable event. From the long journey to the actual rides and shows- it is something that you will never forget! It is a proven fact that experiences make us much happier than buying ourselves things ever will. Going to an amusement park is an event rich with multiple emotions, from joy to fear. And these lead to creating some of the best memories we will ever have.  Looking back a few years later, you might not remember which pair of shoes you owned but you will definitely remember having a great day at an amusement park.


3. Photo Opportunities

We, as humans, love photographs. We trust our memory cards more than our own memory. And what better a place to capture some of our best moments, than at an amusement park? As shallow as it might sound and though we might never admit to it, one of the main reasons we love amusement parks is because of the amazing backdrops to click pictures. Wouldn’t you want a picture of yourself with a long, 150-foot drop, looming in the background, to put up on a social networking website? Of course, you would. Amusement parks are a great place to pose for a lot of stunning pictures which will be looked at in awe a few years down the line.


4. Escape the Stressful Life

We all live rather hectic and stressful lives. From studies to work to social problems, we have a lot to deal with on our plate. When we go to amusement parks, we seem to forget all this for a little while. We forget that we have a project deadline or a nasty person to deal with the next day. We let go of all our worries and just have simply having fun and live for the moment.  That is why we love amusement parks so much- you leave behind all the tension and just freak out by having a whole day away from our worries.


5. Sober Fun

You could go with your family, friends or colleagues, with people half or twice your age and still end up having a ball. You can run from one place to another, jump, splash in the water, let loose and unwind. There is no restriction on the amount you can enjoy there. Amusement parks have been and will always be a great source of fun and entertainment.
