For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a big fan of amusement parks. I find them highly fascinating, and it’s always a great joy to visit one. I’m a big kid at heart, so it’s the perfect place for me to have some fun. There seems to be a joyful mood pretty much all around, and it’s just amazing. I can’t imagine anyone feeling low with so many fun things to explore.
These parks are just a world of their own, and I always immediately get sucked in. The amount of detail that goes into designing and building these incredible sceneries is insane. Pretty much every park I’ve been to, and it’s been a few in different countries, is worth a trip. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris and California, which are obviously perfection. In Germany, Phantasialand is my absolute favorite, and once, I went to Europa Park by myself and had a good time, as well. I can also recommend Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California, where I also swam with dolphins. As you can probably tell, if you want to win my heart, take me to an amusement park.
I try most of the rides unless I already know I’ll get sick or something, but I’ve ridden some crazy ones. Unfortunately, I feel like the older I get, the less my body likes riding roller-coasters. The thrill is amazing though, and I’m always really proud when I pull through. But I also love the little things like merry-go-rounds, and on a hot day, I’m a big fan of water rides. Furthermore, there are usually lots of artistic shows with singing and dancing, or ice skating, which are great to watch, and maybe 3 or 4D movies. Not to forget VR-Rides. So much fun.
And because I’m actually 12 years old, I always try to get some character pics and also some with fun setups throughout the parks. When my mom took me to Disneyland in 2009, I stood in line for ages to meet the characters and get some pictures. I’m always there in between all these little children. I love it. But I also take pictures of the wonderful buildings and just the whole scenery. Around every corner, there is something new to see.
I’ve collected some fabulous memories over the years with many different people, and I always had the best time. The whole day is usually just perfection. You get up early in the morning, cause you always want to get there as soon as possible since there is always too much to do and see in one day. And lines can be super long. You eat junk food all day long – burgers, churros, cotton candy, you name it – take funny pictures all over the place, and are happily exhausted at the end of the day. I’m always glad when I’m not the one driving. I also have to buy souvenirs cause I just can’t help myself, and for me, is just part of the experience. A little something to treasure.
