Taking your toddler to her first theme park can be a wild ride, but if you plan well, you can make your child’s theme-park debut fun and memorable. We took our daughter to an amusement park for the first time when she was 18th month old. My husband and I were kind of hesitant to take her to a ride, but she did pretty good.

Any Family outing to an Amusement Park is a challenge for parents. Here are some tips to help make it more enjoyable and safe for all.

*Make sure Children know what to do if they get lost – stay where they are or go to a concession or park staff member and ask to be taken to lost and found. With older children pick a time and place to gather if they are exploring the park on their own.

*If children are old enough, pick a spot in the park, near the entrance, to meet at designated times.

*Dress children in bright colours so they are easily visible

*Wear lightweight layered clothes and comfortable shoes. A hat is a must but take it off on the rides.

*Insect repellent may also be needed.

*Teach children to keep an eye on you.

*Check height restrictions before you line up for a ride to ensure that the ride is safe for children (these restrictions are recommended for safety sake). Don’t coax children onto a ride they are unsure of or are too small for the seat/seatbelt.

*Avoid rides that go in reverse.

*Drink lots of water to help keep your energy level up.

*A disposable wipe or frozen cloth in a zipper bag can help cool someone down and reduce nausea.

*Bring along a stroller or rent a stroller at the park.
