Tuesday's Trivia: Amusement Parks and Aging



Teens (especially teen girls) comprise the largest percentage of amusement parks visitors.

AND

People under 35 like new rides.

Maybe that explains why you struggled, Checkered.

Sigh.....I hear that and remember how much I loved those crazy rides! I just can't seem to stomach them anymore (there are a few and the one pictured is one of them!) Getting older stinks!

I still love rides!! Maybe it means you are crazy or something?

The picture says it all. :)

I'm getting old and I'm happy to admit it. I've embraced the transition from enjoying going on the rides to enjoying watching others go on the rides. I go for the photo op!

I use to love riding the rides, but now...I am a watcher.


I go for the food. That's my ride.

I think I would be struggling too; doesn't look like fun to me at all; even under 35 it wouldn't have looked fun

cute trivia :)

Hey, I'm back. Thanks, Babe.

Call me egocentric but, at first, I thought you imposed some sort of a modesty screen in front of me on the pic. I know...dork.

Ahhh. It's good to be back.

I will confess that I don't like rides as much as I used to. I am actually braver now than when I was in my 20s about going on rides. Now I am happy to ride them once or twice instead of 20 times!

hahah! Love that picture :) I used to love the rides, now I am just the keeper of all things, like drinks, sunglasses, phones, jackets, backpacks, Oh, I could go on and on!
