What is your idea of an awesome, thrilling vacation? Maybe you like to go to amusement parks and get your adrenaline pumping on a triple loop roller coaster. Maybe you saved up to ride the extreme cannon ball at the beach this summer. Maybe you love the last drop on the log flume?
Or, maybe you aren’t into the adrenaline rush, but would rather enjoy a day at each park in Disney World? Maybe your kids want to get their picture taken with each and every Disney character from Mickey and Minnie to Beauty and the Beast.
Whatever your dream vacation is this year, you are going to want a way to preserve each and every memory. If you are going to ride every extreme roller coaster at an amusement park, you probably will rush off the ride to see your screaming face and arms in the air. You can purchase a 5X7 copy of the picture at the ride’s exit for usually anywhere from $10-$20. By the end of the day you know that the picture will be bent, torn, or altered in some way. Wouldn’t it be better if amusement parks could offer you a package deal?
Perhaps they could offer you a USB drive filled with all of your extreme roller coaster and log flume faces. If you know that you want to preserve all of the memories of your trip, you could purchase a customized USB drive at the park’s entrance. Perhaps they could customize some type of park admittance and flash drive package for their visitors. After each extreme ride, you could view the picture at a kiosk, and quickly upload it onto your flash drive. At the end of the day you would have a flash drive filled with all of your extreme pictures to show all of your family and friends.
If you have been building yourself up to ride the 200 foot cannon ball slingshot or the extreme 150 foot swings on the beach pier this summer, you want a way to prove you did it and just what your face looked like at 197 feet in the air. The extreme rides are a major attraction on many beach piers and offer young adults a way to get an extreme rush, show off, and scream at the top of their lungs (oh and probably get sick after). Some of these rides offer a picture of you in midair.
However, what if they would offer a customized flash drive that could be uploaded with a few pictures of you at different parts in the air? Even better, they could upload a 30 second video clip of you screaming and your cheeks flapping in the wind. They could even offer a ticket to the ride, t-shirt, and flash drive as an “extreme” package. This is a great way to show everyone at home just how tough (or not) you were on the extreme rides.
If you aren’t going for the extreme element, perhaps your cup of tea is getting your picture taken 50 times at Disney with characters, in front of the castle, and even on a few of their rides like the infamous Tower of Terror. Presently, Disney has workers all over the park that will take a professional picture of you. You get a card with an identifying number on it that you hand to the workers all day long and they will save your pictures to that number. At the end of the day you can choose to purchase pictures at the Disney store.
However, wouldn’t it be better for Disney to offer their guests a flash drive filled with your pictures? You could even have your picture taken over several days and at the end of your trip get a flash drive filled with the whole week? Usually at the end of the night, the picture stores are busy and the lines back up as people look at each of their 70 different poses. However, if the park offered a flash drive, the visitor could simply purchase it and decide which pictures to print at home.
Amusement parks and Disney could even offer printing kiosks at the exits of their parks. Guests could choose what pictures to print there on their own and even add custom borders or a flying Tinkerbell into their pictures.
Although some parks now offer their pictures onto a CD, a flash drive is a better solution. A CD can malfunction with one scratch, fingerprint, or mark. If parks want to offer their guests a way to preserve their memories for years to come, a flash drive is the way to go.
Selling a flash drive to visitors and guests of your amusement park, whether it is the local hot spot or Disney World,offers them a fun way to share their memories with their friends and family at home. Your park could customize a flash drive in up to four different colors and add the park’s logo and name. Every time the user picks up the flash drive they will be reminded of their memorable trip to Disney. The memories will probably even encourage return visits.
