Theme parks have been entertaining Americans since the early 1900’s. Back in those days the early roller coasters wowed crowds with its exhilarating dips and climbs. Times have changed since then. Mainly the size and scope of the amusement rides. Some roller coasters reaching towering heights and speeds that would rival a race car. While many things have changed with theme parks America’s love affair with this beloved past time has not. When it comes to making decisions about your next vacation destination you can’t go wrong with choosing to spend it at a theme park.
Theme parks make excellent vacation destinations over visiting other landmarks such as the Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon. It’s not exactly a secret that kids love theme parks. Ask any kid whether they’d rather see a dam named after a former president or the home of their favorite Disney character and 100% of the time the kids will choose the latter. While visiting the Hoover dam may make for a great educational opportunity on the American waterways and former presidents a theme park is fully focused and designed to be fun. Isn’t that what a vacation is all about? Having fun.
