7 kinds of people you spot in amusement parks!

Amusement parks are la-la lands. Colorful clowns, freaky rides, candy bars, scary toys and so much more.
One can almost get lost in the myriad of awesome activities that just compel you to unleash the 5 year old kid in you and run around like you just saw a unicorn.
You might not be lucky enough to spot a unicorn in an amusement park but you will definitely (and in some cases unfortunately) spot these seven kinds of people in an amusement park.

Daredevils: They are the ones who are on a death mission. They will locate the scariest rides and will challenge the weeny wuss to ride it with them. The adrenaline rushes through their veins like sea waves in a tsunami. This often leads to the scaredy-cats on the rides being even more scared. Which brings us to…

Scaredy-cats: These are the anti-daredevils. They don’t even like walking past a fast ride. They enjoy magic shows, mystery rooms, street artists the best. If you force them to get on a ride, they’ll cut you!

Strollers: You might spot this kind walking by randomly in circles. They might even feature randomly in your group photos and will leave you thinking, I am sure this guy wasn't with me. They enjoy giving people the impression that they got out of their house to take an evening walk and somehow reached this amazing wonderland.

Screamers: Squeaks, swears, howls, prayers anything could be coming out from their blessed throats which are sure to be super sore by the time they reach home from the trip. The moment they get on the ride till the moment the usher helps them out of it, they are ones who have the most fun.

Line cutters: They are like the mafia of an amusement park. They won’t get an express upgrade for themselves and would pretend to be a part of your group to get to their favourite rides quicker. Beware of these restless creature on your next trip.

Mommies: No-no we aren't talking about the respected mothers here. We are talking about the self-proclaimed mommies who are yelling do’s and don’t’s even when they are on the awesome rides. You know they are taking care of you, but you also kind of want to stuff their mouth with a soft toy. After all, what are friends for.

Cry-babies: They are quite a common kind but they often exist in stealth mode and thus are difficult to spot. They will be absolutely fine till the moment they are on a ride, but the moment they step out of it they will start complaining really loud about how that ride was the scariest thing that ever happened to them. They will tell it to you, your friends, your family, strangers and yes, you again!

Whichever company you find, make sure that you take a trip to any of the amusement parks near you this summer and enjoy the weather like its meant to be enjoyed.

Also click pictures of your friends and tell us which category they fall in by sharing it on our page. We would love to feature them on our wall!

Stadiums to watch out for!

With the Caribbean Premier League coming up in June, there’s been a lot of talk going around about the series. Let’s explore the stadiums which are going to host the entire series. Each stadium has its own unique feature. Take a look and see how many of these facts you weren't aware of.

1.       Kensington Oval: Did you know that in 2008, the Institute of Structural Engineers recognised this stadium as one of its ‘Structural Awards’ winners. The award was given in the category of ‘Awards for Sports or Leisure Structures.’


2.       Beausejour Cricket Ground: This stadium is said to be amongst the top 10 most picturesque stadiums of the world.

3.       Queens Park Oval:  It is presently the stadium which holds the largest seating capacity in West Indies. Its count goes up to 25,000.

4.       Providence Stadium: Do you remember the iconic moment when Sri Lankan bowler Lasith Malinga became the first bowler in the history of international cricket to take four wickets in four consecutive balls? It happened right here!

5.       Warner Park: You will be amused to know that some seats in this stadium have been recycled and believe it or not, they’ve become more comfortable now!

6.       Sabina Park:  An interesting fact about this stadium is that earlier, a breath-taking view of the Blue Mountains used to be seen, opposite to one of the stands. It was certainly a spectacular view!
