AP9 Your Savings Club, a premier discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, invites adults to let their inner child out so they can openly enjoy one of the most popular activities of the summer -- theme parks. Sure, theme parks are thought of as the #1 kid destination, and in most cases, it is one of the least appealing activities for parents. However, AP9 YourSavingsClub presents a few tips to help everyone enjoy their next trip to an amusement park … yes, even the parents.
AP9 Your Savings Club urges parents to plan ahead, work on their patience and learn to have a little fun. Keep in mind that a positive attitude goes a long way. Parents can have a great time simply by noticing how much fun the children are having -- hopping on a ride or two wouldn't hurt either. It's as simple at that. However, AP9 YourSavingsClub goes the extra mile in making the theme park experience a happy one by providing the following tips:
-- Plan ahead. Researching the ins and outs of the park -- new rides, amenities offered, ride restrictions and health warnings -- before arriving can save walking time and allow more time for fun. Locating a map of the park and sitting down with the entire family to plan a course of action beforehand can potentially make or break the trip.
-- Get physically ready. A trip to a theme park means walking long hours. Training the kids (and yourself) in advance for the ultra-long walk is important. Trying walking around the neighborhood each night after dinner in the weeks before you leave -- you might find that it'll help your endurance as well as your health.
-- Don't follow the crowds. An excellent idea is to avoid the crowds. Shorter lines and fewer crowds is the way to go and can be achieved by starting with the attractions in the back instead of the ones closer to the front entrance. And avoid the food courts between noon and two -- eat an early or late lunch.
-- Be prepared. Being prepared doesn't mean carrying a backpack full of everything you may need while visiting a theme park. The idea here is to bring a light bag with useful items in travel sizes, like sunscreen, allergy or motion sickness medicines, etc. Distribute snacks and drinks among the oldest members of the family, and shop for souvenirs and stuffed animals at the end of the day, notes AP9 Your Savings Club.
-- Listen to the kids' opinions. They helped plan the itinerary for a reason, so asking them what they liked the best every day and what other things they'd like to do are an excellent way to keep everyone involved and excited about the trip.
Please remember that if things don't go as originally planned -- don't sweat it. Simply enjoy the experience, the rides and especially the quality time with the family. Happy travels this summer, concludes AP9 YourSavingsClub.
