When I was a kid, my family would take small vacations over the school breaks.
Most of the time these vacations were to amusement park destinations, and I loved them! Nothing else can compare to the feeling of excitement you get when going up the steep incline of a roller coaster, or the rush you get when going downhill.
We’d always wake up early to go to the park before it opened, so we would be some of the first people in the park, and stay out until it was almost time for everything to close. We were able to get a lot done in the day by doing this, but it was a lot of time spent on our feet out in the heat. Some days when this took more of a toll on us than usual, we’d go and watch the shows multiple times just so we could have a seat. It was even better when the shows were inside and had air conditioning. We’d also redo the rides that were indoor attractions so that we’d be in the air conditioning while waiting in line. The cool air from the air conditioner was a big relief and helped us to make it through the day at the park. When we visited over the winter break from school, these rides were equally great for the heating they offered when the air conditioner was switched over to a furnace. Despite the weather outside, the indoor attractions remained at a comfortable temperature. At some point in my life I’d like to go and visit one of the amusement parks that are completely indoors. They’re an amazing idea for the convenience and comfort of the guests.
