What do you wear when you go to a theme park

Tue Mar 05, 2013 10:25 pm

Apologies if this has already been discussed...

I just wondered what everyone wears, typical clothes...

As a lass, I tend to go cargo trousers, tshirt and hoodie - things with lots of pockets for phone/money... what about everyone else?

My Snickers jacket as all the pockets have zips

and my usual work style trousers.

For anyone who is wondering my normal style of dress has been described as utilitarian.

Well dressed but comfortable, usually something along the lines of a nice Hugo Boss polo and some comfy jeans...I've made the mistake of tight jeans before and it's a killer on rides, never mind submission  :(

I usually wear jeans, a hoodie (preferably an Alton Towers one)
And a coat with pockets.
Unless its sunny, then I don't wear a coat.

maybe this is my mistake, but I don't tend to put a lot of thought into it. Usually shorts, top, and my leather jacket with vans or something

When I was much younger I used to be really geeky and wear shirts from other theme parks - these days it's usually shorts and t's - though I always tend to bring a spare set in case I get drenched on the water rides. A friend of mine once did a day at AT in full drag - very liberating apparently!

I like to wear combat trousers with zip pockets and I confess being a ride geek I do have many park t-shirts that I also wear :)

My other theme park staple is a Bumbag - very useful for those smaller items like phone, purse etc :)

I just wear what I always do... Skinny jeans/chinos (yes, they can be uncomfortable), a generic t-shirt/hoodie and Vans/Converse. (depending on how I feel on the day)

I'll usually take my Superdry coat for convenience of pockets/waterproofness as well, although I don't tend to take much with me to parks.

I normally wear my uniform lol  :lol: , but in all seriousness I'd wear something pratical and comfortable and make sure at least one item of clothing is waterproof because this is britain afterall.  :)

Skinny jeans.... I wouldn't go for that - I love my converse for parks though! I do tend to not take waterproof stuff but *touch wood* so far I've never had to need waterproofs for raining...

if the weather is nice/im planning on water rides I would wear a tshirt, thin hoody, leggings and denim shorts..
for average British weather or none water ride trips I wear skinny jeans, vest top, t shirt, hoody and Jack Wills gilet (lots of zippy pockets and toasty warm)

I also take a waterproof coat if it looks like rain and on occasions it has proved to be very useful.  In addition it's another item of clothing with zip pockets which are essential for theme parks I think :)
