Ideas for things to take to a park

Friday, May 3, 2002 12:30 PM
In another topic, someone mentioned taking ziplok bags with them to a park to put their camera into in case it rained. I actually do the exact same thing when I go to parks. Though in my case, I have mainly used the bags to put my wallet and money in when going on water rides.

Does anyone else have any handy suggestions like this for the rest of us?

My solution is not to take anything. Of course I take my wallet and keys. My wallet is safe in my back pocket and I put my keys on my belt loop.

It makes ride operators happy if the rider wears actual shoes or sandals that won't fall off their feet. Technically footwear is required on all of the rides, especially if the ride has a floor, which means trouble on rides like Chaos.

Clothes might be nice...

If you have the clothes downpat then you could take those little kleenex packets if it's allergy season. Their's nothing worse than having a hand full of snot covering your hand while waiting in line.

I always like to go through my wallet before I leave for the park and take out all unnecessary things. This way if I lose it, it cause the least amount of chaos in my life.

I always wear pants with those outside pockets. The ones with the velcrow that way it closes and I can be sure nothing falls out.

...always wondering about the packs of 15-20 teenagers, all with their own backpacks stuffed FULL of "stuff". I'm more like Den and jdancisin...want the least amount of stuff to carry/lose...call me a "minimalist"!

I take a hip pack with me and always wear cut off cameo's. I put my wallet, keys, and camera in the hip pack and shove my hat in one of the pockets on the side of my leg. The ziplock bags are a good idea too along with extra film.

I'd never want to lug around a huge bookbag with all sorts of garbage in it. It makes it a pain if the park searches you upon entry. Plus who wants to keep jumping to the exit side of a coaster drop your bag off in a bin then try to remember to grap it on your way out. If I can't hold onto it I don't want it with me.

Car keys, Drivers License, Season Pass, Cash. I keep a cooler in the car. No hats or glasses. Simplicity is the easiest way to go.

Things I always take:

Spare glasses in car in case something happens to mine.
Retainer strap for eyeglasses ( I couldn't find the rides without my glasses)
Camera
Season Passes
ACE membership cards
Money
Sun screen (Usually leave in car.)
Any medications that may be needed.
Zip Lock Bags. Think I started this. They are good for cameras, wallets, hearing aids, insulin pumps, medicines, and a host of other things that you don't want to have get wet. They also keep wet bathing suits etc. from messing up other things.

Leave hats at home, they just blow off. Hypersonic XLC must average 5-10 hats per hour.

When I go to a park, I usally hide my wallet somewhere in the car, but take out only the amount of money that I think I'll need while in the park...which is usually about $10 for drinks or something. The season pass goes in the park with me..obviously. Keys...I separate my ONE car key from the rest of my keys, leave the unnecessary keys in the car, and attach that ONE key to my belt loop. If I'm wearing cargo pants, my things go into one of the zip up pockets...if not, then they go into that little small hidden pocket. The only thing that I would worry about losing then would be any loose change that I get when I break a bill.

Plastic or Zip-Lok bag for my wallet on water rides, Visor to keep the mean ol' sun out of my eyes (and it can easily be pulled down around my neck when I go on rides), wallet with lots of cash inside, zippered pocketed jeans or shorts, and if it is cold outside I wear one of my zippered hoodys which can easily be taken off and tied around my waist if it gets hot.

I keep extra clothes in my backpack in the trunk of my car just incase the weather changes.
