Accompanying an octogenarian to a theme park slows you down and lets you see details that you previously have taken for granted. Most people in this age group are not interested in thrill rides, but they are very appreciative of the beautifully landscaped grounds. They enjoy a walk outside without fear of being approached by cars or dogs. The entertainment value of a theme park provides motivation to forget the physical exercise and the accompanying aches and pains necessary for the sight seeing. Stage shows provide good places to sit and rest while still being mentally stimulated.
You might wonder if a theme park is a good place for someone in their 80’s or 90’s. Absolutely! It is this time of life when they have the time and money to appreciate the amenities that theme parks offer. So ask Grandma and Grandpa to pack a bag and get ready to have some fun and a lifetime of memories.
