Theme parks have a way of making you feel alive. The way you feel going on roller coaster at a speed of 50 miles per hour with the air pulling on your cheeks is like no other feeling and the adrenaline rush that comes with it is truly euphoric.
Returning to theme parks as an adult was a whole new experience, I was suddenly not seeking a thrill and I was okay with that. Don’t get me wrong, I still love going to theme parks and still get that exciting feeling pulling up into the parking lot, but now it’s more because of the sights and sounds and less about getting my heart rate skyrocket high. I wouldn’t completely put roller coasters and all rides that you have to be a certain height to ride on out of the question, there is simply a whole new routine I have to go through before going on one. Where once I could easily go on a ride without any concern, now I simply need to do my best to stop myself from talking me out of it.
