Now I know what a lot of you must be thinking, how can you possibly have fun or even enjoy a theme park if you go it alone. Well, my friends, I’m here to tell you just a few of the amazing reasons why a theme park in Japan is the perfect place to go when you’re all on your own.
First of all, there is the freedom to pick and choose whatever ride you’d like to go on first or for as many times as you’d like. At Disneyland and want to go on the Star Wars: the Adventure Continues ride three times in a row cause the line is so short? No worries! You can go on it over and over again because you don’t have to worry about whether or not someone may be prone to motion sickness.
Secondly, you can eat all the bad food you like and not have to feel an ounce of guilt for it. If that fourth churro for the day keeps calling your name, then I say go and indulge in all the churros you can get your hands on. As well as ice-cream, chips and soft drinks too.
Thirdly, rides in Japan have a lot more in the way of entertainment to keep you occupied while walking around or waiting in those long lines. By that I mean there are interactive exhibits or talking people, animals, robots or characters and things related to the ride or park to amuse you. They create a feel for the ride before you even get strapped into your seat. You can stop and watch the highly fantastic yet constantly moving piano player at Disneyland then you can spend as long as you want watching or even following him around to your heart’s content.
Lastly and most importantly, the absolute best thing about going to a theme park in Japan on your own is that most theme parks not only have fast passes but a lot of the more popular attractions have what is known as single rider lines! These are exactly what they sound like, it’s a free pass to the front of the line, no waiting in those long lines. You just walk straight up to the front and join the small handful of other single riders which can shorten waiting times significantly. I’m talking a 3-hour wait only taking 20 minutes (that includes the time it takes to walk to the end of the single rider line).
For those who love to travel on their own or just love to indulge the big kid inside us all then these are the absolute best reasons for going to a theme park without other people.
