Amusement parks come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they're perfect for gathering some great family memories. There's no better way to remember your amusement park visit than with a vacation scrapbook.
Keep your eyes open throughout your park visit for some key photo opportunities.Amusement park photo ops:
Ideas for putting it together:
- Most amusement parks offer some commercial photographs. If you have the means, this is something to take advantage of. That way, your entire family can be in the picture. Lots of parks will have someone stationed at the entrance to take your photo before you start your day. You can usually pick this picture up before you leave the park so you don't have to worry about carrying it around with you the whole time.
- Another great photo for your vacation scrapbook, could be one of the roller coaster candid shots. They can be a little pricey sometimes, but they're usually worth it. They generally come with a nice photo holder that you can use in your scrapbook, as well. Plus, it's always funny to see the looks on people's faces in the roller coaster shots!
- With your own camera, you can look for some interesting posing opportunities. Many amusement parks have picturesque gardens or walkways. Keep your eyes open for things that might look nice in your vacation scrapbook.
- Go up to one of the costumed characters and ask for a picture. That's what they're there for!
- If you don't like riding some of the rides, you can stand by and get pictures of your kids as they pass by on the merry-go-round. Those are the kinds of smiles you don't see everyday. If you're feeling brave, you can give your kids some disposable cameras and let them snap a few pictures while they ride some rides. Try taking a picture from the top of the Ferris wheel!
- Look for detail shots of vendor booths and ride signs to use as page fillers in your vacation scrapbook.
- In addition to your photos, you can include your ticket stub and other paper items that you may have collected throughout the day. Use the park map as a page background. You can even use some postcards.
- Keep a little notepad in your pocket (or fanny pack you are at the amusement park, after all!) and write down memorable quotes from the day. You'll probably be spending a lot of time in line, and someone is bound to say something funny! That's the kind of thing you want to remember for your amusement park vacation scrapbook.
- As you get your pages together, it might be a good idea to go with the color scheme of the park. That way your scrapbook will be unified.
Just remember, it's all about having a great time and preserving those memories. There's no better way to do that than with a vacation scrapbook
