Why should families visit theme parks?

For most people, a day at an amusement park has both physical and mental benefits. According to Pete Trabucco, author of America's Top Roller Coasters and Amusement Parks, thrill rides “help you mental health-wise in that you can actually overcome your fear. Once you’ve overcome one fear, you’re like, ‘Let’s look for the next one.’ ”

Michael Olpin, director of Weber State University’s Stress Relief Center, agrees there are positive benefits in an amusement park visit:

[A theme park visit] “provide stress relief by letting us recharge and relax from the daily grind. Anytime you can vacate yourself from those situations that you find stressful is a good thing.”

Benefits of Family Theme Parks

  • stress reliever
  • a break from the daily routine
  • time spent together as a family
  • practicing courage and trying new things (for both adults and kids)
  • time spent outdoors and walking
