Virtual Theme Park Rides

Amusement parks are a family favorite destination.

In fact, theme parks are the most popular vacation spots because they provide a place dedicated for fun for the whole family.

Currently, most theme parks are closed due to social distancing, but it doesn’t mean your family can’t still experience the fun.

Thanks to the internet we can pretty much experience anything right from the comfort of our home.

Watching POV (point of view) videos can let you experience the ride as if you are really riding it. 

Of course, it’s not the same thrill, but it will do in a pinch. 

Virtually watching theme park rides isn’t something new but it can be an experience all on it’s own. 

Think of it as letting your kids experience the theme park for free! That’s every frugal mom’s dream, right!

So if your kids are going stir-crazy from being stuck in the house, let them watch these videos that can virtually take them to Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and more. 

MOM HACK: Turn off the lights and let your kids watch these videos on your T.V. with a fan blowing on high.
