Looking back I loved amusement parks. As a kid it was heaven on earth and a trip to the park was like a national holiday. I remember saying to myself "I hope this day never ends". I also remember saying "I will never outgrow this 10-hour day at the rides". Now what's good about growing up, at amusement parks, is that even though you can't handle the "big rides" you do find other things to enjoy. I remember my parents saying we will get coffee and watch you on "Lightning Loops" lol Well now that's my "amusement". I'm still good for a few good rides but upside down and twirling in circles, those days are over. I remember when taking a break to eat at an amusement park was a terrible waste of "ride time" Now that is the amusement. So as you see as you go through the circle of life, you literally go through "circles" and you find different things to do at an amusement park. My point here, yes it took a little patience lol, is that a good amusement park is one that offers various things to do in addition to really cool rides.
