#063 Enjoy the ride.

Are you looking for a fun place date experience, that offers space for conversation, and plenty of handholding opportunities? Look no further than your nearby amusement park. Amusement parks offer all of the above, with even a few thrills thrown in to get your hearts racing. With the vast number of rides, shows, midway games, and crowd watching opportunities, there is very little chance the two of you will get bored or run out of things to talk about. In fact, those pesky long lines, can actually work to your advantage! It’s an awesome time to just chill, chat, and get to know one other better. As you stroll through the park side by side, it will probably feel perfectly natural to take your date’s hand. I mean, after all, you don’t want to get separated, right?! Now, if you want to up the romance quotient even more, whisk your date off to the nearby midway. Your attempt to win a cheesy midway toy for your date has romance spelled all over it. Even if you are unsuccessful, your date will appreciate your efforts, and have great fun rooting for you. For more excitement, don’t pass up the chance to try a thrill ride while you’re there. Thrill rides have some interesting physiological effects, that work in your favor. Thrill rides increase the levels of your naturally occurring flight or fight hormones, which heightens your sensory awareness. Dopamine, your feel good neurotransmitter, will also elevate. When your brains realize that there is no immediate danger and nothing to fear, they will default to the second option, excitement. Best of all, those feelings of excitement will be attributed to each other! Last, but not least, many parks offer fireworks in the evening, so don’t miss out on them. Nothing’s quite as romantic as sharing a kiss, while the sky sparkles and dances above you.
