Tips And Tricks To Outsmart Everyone At The Theme Park

  • Take zip lock bags for your phone and valuables on water rides
  • Take a picture of your parking spot
  • Walk through the park backwards to try to avoid the biggest lines
  • If you have kids, write your name and number on their wrist or on a tag on them, so they can be found if lost
  • Go on rides during a parade or fireworks show
  • If you’re traveling alone, look for the single riders line to get on sooner.
  • Go left! A lot of people go right in lines, sometimes it’s better to go left
