Patience is totally worth it



Dan Wyson

Our family’s love of theme parks began when Launa directed the Dixie Children’s Choir and took them on a performance trip every year. We enjoyed watching the kid’s excitement as they passed by us throughout the day, hurrying to the next ride. From those days we have continued our theme park tradition, even taking time out of our last Italy trip to try out an amazing park at Lake Garda.

One day I decided to statistically analyze our typical theme park visit, (of course I did), and came up with the following numbers. On a normal day, we spend 8 hours in the park. During that time, we average about 8 rides. The rest of the time is spent walking around, eating or shopping. Though it varies, I estimated the average ride wait time to be 30 minutes while the average ride lasts only 3 minutes. This means that we spend four hours waiting in line and only 24 minutes of our day actually on a ride. Spending half our time at the park waiting in a boring line does not seem like a very good value proposition.
