Kids still love theme parks

Last weekend I was staying up at the Gold Coast for some R&R with the girlfriend and we decided to do a theme park for the day. We chose Wet N Wild as i’ve always love waterslides. Anyway, it was awesome, apart from scaring the shit out of my girlfriend on the ‘Kamikaze’ and losing the hearing in my left ear from the screams it was great to see thousands of kids getting into the fun. There were plenty of ‘big kids’ of the 30+ variety getting into the action. Good to see that despite the massive growth in gaming, kids are still getting outdoors and having fun at themeparks with their friends. I know the QLD themeparks are struggling with numbers and domestic tourism, hopefully parents will keep dropping their kids off on weekends to let them live it up, rather than keep them glued to PS3 or wi.. (although i do love wii…in moderation) 🙂
