Amusement Park Road Trip Tips

When you plan a road trip to an amusement park, you want everything to go as planned, the last thing you need is a few bumps in the road to throw you off schedule! Here are some great tips to help things go smoothly.

Don’t Over-Schedule: Planning is great, but don’t forget to leave in plenty of free time, the kids and the parents will be wanting to make memories, have a few laughs and most importantly enjoy time away from the daily grind, so bottom line, don’t over schedule and don’t get upset if you don’t get to do everything on your schedule! Sometimes spontaneous is the best plan to go by.
Map out Everyone’s Priority Activities: Before you head out on your trip take the time to sit down with the family and discuss who wants to see what and then narrow it down to a few things only. Make sure when you are making plans, you don’t forget ages involved. The amusement park for the toddlers is perfect for that age group, but a child of 10 and above may not want to spend time there. Take into account that as kids have grown up they will want to try new things.

Be Prepared: Remember you will be on your feet and out in the sun for most of an entire day. Wear comfortable shoes, and sunscreen is a must. Also – make sure you are aware and have planned for the entire cost of the trip. Beyond the entrance price, which you can find online, remember the cost of food for your family, as well as drinks, will be typical ‘amusement park prices’ – meaning it’s not cheap.

Visiting Six Flags over Georgia: If you live in GA going to Six Flags will be a blast for everyone. Here you can find rides for all ages. There are a variety of shows to go to, so all can sit down and watch and cool down a bit. The newest attraction is a water park, called Hurricane Harbor. You can ride the surf in the giant wave pool or slide down the enclosed tunnels. The good part about the water park is it is included in the price of admission to Six Flags. So, when everyone is hot and fussy, head to the water park and cool off. The park just opened spring of 2018. If you have a love for roller coasters, you have come to the right place. You can take a ride on the “Runaway Mine Train”, which is mild, or take a chance and ride the scream machine. This is an older ride but it’s a blast, it’s not for the faint at heart! If you are still wanting an adrenaline rush, ride the new Twisted Cyclone! It’s a Wood and Steel Twisted Cyclone Hybrid Roller Coaster!
