Psychic Readings: Fun Or Serious?

In many amusement parks, you might find a psychic. Sometimes it’s an electronic psychic, and sometimes it’s a real person. Some of these are just for fun, while others are real. It’s not always easy to distinguish between the two, but in amusement parks and fair grounds, you’re much more likely to find fake psychics. They will either admit it’s just for fun, or they will be frauds, attempting to scam you out of your money. So be careful!

Are psychics ever real?

This is a tricky question. I believe in the accuracy of psychics, and actually get frequent online psychic readings. However, like I stated above, many of the psychics you find in amusement parks are there just for fun. My advice is to stay away from them. It can be fun to visit a fortune teller, and go along with the joke about the glass ball, but if you’re really looking for help, don’t count on any.

Where to get psychic readings?

There are bound to be some real mediums in your area, but I find going online to be easier and more effective. There are plenty of psychic networks online, some of them are very good and highly reputable, while others are associated with scams. It’s therefore important to always read some customer reviews before paying any money for a reading.

The websites I frequent offer an accurate free tarot reading online, however this is usually limited to a trial. For example a free tarot reading for the first three minutes. This should give you enough of an idea whether it is worth paying more for.

My all-time favorite network is Psychic Source. This is a network which has been around for years, and has excellent customer reviews. You can read the entire Psychic Source review here.

Alternatively, I am also a big fan of Keen. You can read the full Keen Psychic review here: http://onlinetarotandpsychics.com/keen-psychic-review/. Like I said before, the big advantage of going online as opposed to visiting a real clairvoyant is that you can read customer reviews and gain a better understanding of whether the service is real or not. This will increase your chances of finding someone real and talented.

So there you go, you now know where to get a spiritual reading, and you also know what to avoid. These can be fun, but more importantly, the right person can really help you out.

Best US Theme Parks

Going to an amusement park is always fun, but from experience, some theme parks are more fun than others. Here my three favorite theme parks in the United States. We’ve visited the top amusement parks worldwide, including Australia and the UK among other places, but this post will concentrate just on the good old USA.

Universal Orlando

I have visited both Universal in Orlando and in Los Angeles, and the best one if in Orlando. It truly is a magical experience. Take for example the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a completely new part of the amusement park dedicated completely to Harry Potter. Whether you’re a Harry Potter fan or not, the rides there are just awesome – whether you’re just a muggle or a wizard yourself. The Hogwarts Express is a must experience ride.

In the Los Angeles theme park, the best ride is Jurassic Park. Expect to scream and get soaked!

For those of you old enough to remember Jaws, here’s a great video showing the full Jaws ride at Universal in Orlando.

Six Flags Great America

Six Flags never ceases to impress me, they are the innovators of theme parks worldwide. The best ride there is Goliath, but it’s not for everyone! It is the word’s tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster, so expect to be petrified. This is great for adults who are thrill seekers, but there is plenty to keep the kids entertained as well. This is probably the best amusement park for roller coaster fans, and those without kids. Truly a magnificent time to be had in this park.

Busch Gardens Tampa

If you’re ever in Tampa, Florida; this is a must-visit park. For those who like heights, make sure you visit the Falcon’s Fury. This is the highest free standing drop in the United States at over 300 feet. Not my cup of tea, but it’s certainly great for those thrill seekers craving heights. Apart from that ride, there are plenty of other attractions to keep you excited on a sunny Florida day. Some great roller coasters will have you screaming with fear!


Let us know what your favorite amusements park is and why. Would love to hear from each and every one of you. Maybe we’ll learn of a new theme park we’ve never been to!

Fun Family Activity Ideas

While theme parks are our passion, we do realize that taking our families across the country each weekend to a new theme park is not realistic! So we have come up with some of the best, and most fun family activities that you can get started with this weekend for free or at a very low cost! Hope you have fun, and do let us know what your favorite weekend family activity is – we might even share it with our audience if we like your plan!

Face Painting

face-paintingFace painting is a world of fun, and is very cheap to do. The idea is that each family member picks an animal and has their faces painted.

It’s not only a lot of fun for the kids (and parents) but it really fosters creativity. The best way to develop creativity in your children is to let them choose which animal they want to be and let them paint a face as well. They might mess up, it might be terrible, but at least everyone is having fun. Don’t take it too seriously!

You could even put on a family show once you’re done painting. Again this really fosters creativity in your kids, and it creates some great memories. Don’t forget to take a family selfie and depending on how weird you all look, you might want to keep the pictures to yourself … or share them with their friends!


The first time I heard of this activity, I didn’t see the fun in it. But while the face painting fosters creativity, this one creates compassion. One of the best ways to teach your children the importance of helping others is to volunteer together as a family. You get to spend some quality time together while helping others. You could give away old toys to less fortunate children, or volunteer at a church event. There are plenty of places that could use the help from your family.


Everyone loves a picnic. Spend some time with the family outdoors on a beautiful summers day, while having a picnic. Prepare the food beforehand with your children, and get them to cook their own favorite foods. This is a lot of fun, especially for the kids! Adults might not like it so much as they have to do the cleaning up.

Bring some games, a few racquets and a football to increase the fun. This is a great way to spend time with the wider family or even bring other families along. This is one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.
