DD6 loves fairs, carnivals, and amusement parks, with her favorite being WDW. I’m planning her birthday party and it’s going to have a carnival theme. I’d love to have some amusement park inspired “rides.” I have found lots of ideas for backyard games, but not much on rides. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. (I don’t have the resources, know how, or inclination for anything too fancy or complicated like an actual backyard coaster.)
- Virtual reality roller coaster ride - google cardboard VR headset and iPhone
- “Tilt-A-Whirl” - rotating office chair with a volunteer “cast member” spinning it (i.e. grandma)
- Maybe a zip line? We have lots of trees in our yard. I could label it “Skyliner”
I figured that if anyone would have other ideas, it would be the folks here. Any suggestions?
