Anything that can have a positive impact on your health and wellbeing is worth considering, and that includes taking a trip to a theme park.
Yes, this can be more than just a fun way to spend a few hours and antidote to boredom! Booking a trip to Fantasy Island could be good for you.
Here are five of the benefits of a day at a theme park.
This is probably the most obvious way in which rides and attractions can have a positive impact on your mental health. You can scream, laugh and challenge yourself to try new things in a safe and enjoyable environment. This is all a great way to relieve stress.
Even if you are someone who prefers to watch others on the rides, the fact you have escaped the ‘normal’ world to a colorful and fun-filled place can be a source of distraction and relief.
Bonding with family and friends
If you are looking for things to do in Skegness and consider the delights of Fantasy Island, the chances are you are either with family or a group of friends. One of the benefits of heading off to enjoy rides, attractions and shopping at the park, is there is something for all ages and interests, meaning you are more likely to make some amazing holiday memories as a family or group.
This sort of bonding – and the joy of shared memories – can be highly therapeutic.
Get adrenaline and endorphins pumping
Of course, if you decide to face your fears and opt for one of Fantasy Island’s top ten rides, you have a chance to get lots of invigorating natural hormones pumping around your body.
The thrill of a roller coaster can be a great way to ramp up production of endorphins – one of the body’s four ‘happiness hormones’. Also, an adrenalin rush from a ride can produce wonderful natural euphoria.
There are other physical ways that a trip to Fantasy Island can make you feel better. For one thing, you will be out in the open air for much of the day. Also, the chances are you will burn off calories and stretch out your limbs as you make the most of the park’s diverse experiences and sights.
The feel-good factor
This all comes down to completing your day out in Lincolnshire with a wonderful sense of satisfaction. You’ve had fun and challenged yourself a little, walked, laughed and breathed in the fresh air. Add in some retail therapy and tasty snack and you have an even better chance of ending the day with a big smile on your face!
