Genius Theme Park Tips For

FAMILIES

Going to an amusement park with kids can be challenging; here are some theme park tips for families to get the most out of your trip and avoid meltdowns.

1.
set budget

Going without a number in mind is a rookie mistake, and you're going to spend a lot more than you thought.

2.
Plan as much as you can in advance

this includes buying tickets, securing times for particular rides or shows, and familiarizing yourself with the park so you’ll know what rides to hit.

3.
Make sure everyone picks a must-do ride

Make sure everyone is able to hit by planning at least one ride of their top choice and trying to do them first.

4.
Prepare for the elements

And by that we mean bring sunscreen (even if it’s not particularly hot or sunny), layers of clothing, and a change clothing, especially if there are water rides.

5.
Choose your backpack wisely

A backpack is a must at an amusement park, and you want to look for a few key features: lightweight, multiple pockets, brightly colored, with comfortable straps.

6.
Pack treats

Your family won't be able to feast at the park, but you don't want to depend on their expensive snacks. Bring fun things from home - maybe something they don't always get at home.

7.
Pick a kid, any kid!

It can sometimes be handy to have a parent designation for a particular child to make sure everyone is taken care of.

9.
Leave time for hotel fun

Whether you are staying in or near the park, enjoying the hotel facilities is a great way to take a car breaks, relax and unwind.

10.
Load up on wipes

You want to make sure you have a healthy supply of baby wipes. Between clingy treats, dirty hands, and cleaning dirty tables, these are going to be your best friends.

11.
Take a picture of your parking spot

Friend. You'll think you'll remember, but you won't. It takes three seconds. Just take a picture.

12.
Bring a charger

If you have a charger for the power bank, bring it with you. If you don't, it may be worth the investment. You don't want to be without a phone.

13.
Don’t force your child to go on a ride

 if you know they would like it. Let them decide what’s scary and not scary for themselves — everyone will have a better time this way.
