Visiting a theme park in the near future? These are our top 5 steps for a smooth theme park day!

Avoid Peak Hours

If you are able to be flexible, visiting a theme park during the early-mid fall, late winter or early spring is prime time. Plus you won’t be exhausted from the heat or frozen from the cold. Just think of how many you wouldn’t see while waiting in all those lines during the summer!

Set a budget

Theme park visits are expensive, but with some small planning, you don’t have to feel like you are breaking the bank. Pack lunches and “tailgate” ate your car, this can cut costs dramatically. Don’t waste your money on games, souvenirs are always a favorite to bring home!

Plan Your Adventures

Check the theme park’s website before you go! Make a list of all the rides you want to hit before the day is over, and get the most out of your day. Plus, having a game plan can be handy for everything from locating bathrooms to knowing how long the wait is for rides and attractions.

Bring the Right Supplies

Bring swimsuits and if you don’t want to get wet bring a poncho. A waterproof case for your phone is always a good idea as is a power bank. A lightweight backpack is ideal as sunglasses and phones are usually not allowed on some of the rides. Don’t forget sunscreen!

Discover hidden attractions

There are hidden gems in every theme park! When you’re not spending your time waiting in lines, take a stroll to the often overlooked areas.
