In a society where today’s youth is glued to a smart phone, computer or television screen, it is imperative that we take the initiative to encourage outdoor recreation. Outdoor activities not only improve a child’s overall health, it also improves their social skills and their attitude, thanks to the mood-boosting effects of Vitamin D!
Oftentimes, the most common response when you tell a child or teenager to go do something outside, is “there’s nothing to do!” or “I don’t know where to go”. Childhood obesity, another growing epidemic, can be prevented by making physical activity fun and enjoyable at an early age. Studies show that obesity is more strongly linked to the absence of physical activity than it is to calorie intake.
At Adventure Park USA, we are a solution to that problem. With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner, our outdoor attractions are the perfect way to encourage outdoor recreation that everyone in the family will enjoy. Thrill seekers are attracted to Adventure Park USA’s roller coasters, while “little tykes” enjoy the carousel and mini-helicopters and go-karts are a park favorite for everyone. A round of mini-golf is another fantastic way for the entire family to get active, enjoy the fresh air and incorporate a bit of friendly competition. With plenty of space to walk around and explore plus activities for everyone, you can fit in a full day of recreation and outdoor fun.
During your visit, we recommend wearing sunscreen and packing extra, even on cloudy days. Wearing a hat and light-colored clothing will also help protect you from dangerous sun rays. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids on hot days to keep hydrated and feeling your best. Outdoor rides will be open Saturdays and Sundays from April 1st – June 16th (weather permitting). Outdoor rides will be open daily starting June 17th through Labor Day weekend and then weekends only through November 5.
