We Outside: An amusement park would bring out the child in you

Amusement parks are for everyone and not just children.

Amusement parks might seem like children’s activity, but it is not. Every year millions of people visit Disney Parks because they let the child in you run wild.

Do you remember the thrill you felt as you went down a rollercoaster? Frightened and excited? Why not recreate those moments.

At amusement parks, there are a variety of things you can do. Some amusement parks have bumper cars, trains, mountain climbing exercises, rollercoasters and different types of rides.

Food and snacks are never something to worry about. Amusement parks sell a variety of things to munch on.

One of the best parks I have been to is Pleasure Park in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. It has a scenic view of trees and green grass and a water pond in the middle you can kayak in!

Pleasure park has a model train, two cinemas, a climbing maze and a restaurant and bar, not to mention a lot of Bole and Fish.

Kaduna State has one of the best parks in Nigeria. When I grew up it was called Gamji park now it is called Splash Park. Splash park is a very park, it goes on for acres. You cannot walk the length and breadth, you have to go there with a vehicle.

Any ride you want is there. It has one of the scariest swings in Nigeria. If you are into a good scream this would be a perfect place for you. You would also get to enjoy the ambience, and an especially fun thing to do is watch crocodiles. How they pretend like they are dead or sleeping.

Crocodiles aren't the only animals you will get to see, you would see ostriches and other exotic animals

Abuja has so many amusement parks, it is truly hard to choose the best to visit. My picks are Wonderland and Magic land. They have a lot of rides, activities and confectionaries.

For my Lagos people, Apapa amusement park is one of the best places to have fun. According to hotels ng, "There are different types of entertaining games to keep you hooked at the park. Some include Rides, Adult Games, Junior Games, Children Games, Kart Racing, Gardens, Restaurant and Coffee shops, Snack Bars, Passages, Fountains..."

No matter your city, I am sure there are amusement parks there.

Did I miss out on your favorite amusement park? What is it?

So, this weekend if you are looking to have fun, visit an amusement park.
