Peaceful Thrillseeker Gives Tips on Attending Theme Parks


In this episode, we get into another podcast with Oscar, The Peaceful Thrillseeker Podcast. His show talks about fun, new theme park rides, roller coasters, and new park openings! Even though we are in the middle of COVID, you can plan today what you will dream tomorrow, so look into the park you are interested in going to and keep your eyes open for new park openings.


Remember to be safe, wear a mask, wash your hands often, and definitely do not travel if you are in a high-risk group for COVID.


The Peaceful Thrillseekers Advice on Attending Theme Parks


When you are planning to go to a theme park, and you are bringing the family, make sure to have your reservations ahead of time as soon as possible. If you’re going to Disney, create a Disney account for all members of your family, and connect them under your name. You can reserve FastPasses for all your guests at the same time, right online!


Are you an Amazon Prime member? If so, you can order supplies ahead of time and have them shipped right to your Disney hotel room! He definitely recommends doing this in advance of your trip to avoid any “hiccups.”


If you are going with a group of friends, Oscar recommends starting at the back of the theme park, working your way forward to avoid the crowds. Many people start at the front of the park and move to the back end. Doing this in reverse helps to cut down on groups and wait times. He also advises avoiding crowded holiday times, as this will increase your wait times on rides and reduce the chances of riding on all the spins at the park you are visiting. 


Definitely bring sunscreen, sun hat, poncho and sunglasses that you are not afraid to lose! These are essentials, especially in Florida theme parks. Wear comfortable walking sneakers - definitely don’t wear flats or heels to any of the theme parks. If you’re wearing sandals, make sure to wear the type that has the strap across the front and back of your foot to keep them secure, especially when you are riding coasters!


And, if you go to a theme park more than once a year, definitely invest in an annual pass for that park. This will save you hundreds of dollars and give you the flexibility to go to your favorite park for fun, once a year, special events.


Disney’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge


“The thing that makes it so spectacular is the cast members. I think the cast members have done an amazing job with Galaxy’s Edge. I think that if it weren’t for them, the experience wouldn’t be as special as it is.” Checkout The Peaceful Thrillseekers episode on Star Wars experience here.


Theme Parks for Kids and Parks for Adults


For kids, Oscar recommends Disney, Legoland, Sea World, Fun Spot.


Adult-centered theme parks include: Busch Gardens, and Universal. Although Universal does have more adult rides, they do also have rides for children. Oscar mentions that Cedar Point in Ohio is his dream coaster park and that he will make a mecca there one day.
