7 kinds of people you spot in amusement parks!

Amusement parks are la-la lands. Colorful clowns, freaky rides, candy bars, scary toys and so much more.

One can almost get lost in the myriad of awesome activities that unleash the 5-year-old kid in you and make you run around like you just saw a unicorn.

You might not be lucky enough to spot a unicorn in an amusement park but you will definitely (and in some cases, unfortunately) spot the following seven kinds of people.

1. Daredevils

They are the ones who are on a death mission. They will locate the scariest rides and will challenge the weeny wuss to ride it with them. The adrenaline rushes through their veins like sea waves in a tsunami.

This often leads to the scaredy-cats on the rides being even more scared. Which brings us to…

2. Scaredy-cats

These are the anti-daredevils. They don’t even like walking past a fast ride. They enjoy magic shows, mystery rooms, street artists the best. If you force them to get on a ride, they’ll cut you!

3. Strollers

You might spot this kind walking by randomly in circles. They might even feature randomly in your group photos and will leave you thinking, I am sure this guy wasn’t with me. They enjoy giving people the impression that they got out of their house to take an evening walk and somehow reached this amazing wonderland.

4. Screamers

Squeaks, swears, howls, prayers — anything could be coming out from their blessed throats which are sure to be super sore by the time they reach home from the trip. From the moment they get on the ride till when the usher helps them out of it, they are ones who have the most fun.

5. Line cutters

They are like the mafia of the amusement park. They won’t get an express upgrade for themselves and would pretend to be a part of your group to get to their favourite rides quicker. Beware of these restless creatures on your next trip.

6. Mommies

No, we aren’t talking about the respected mothers here. We are talking about the self-proclaimed mommies who are yelling do’s and don’t’s even when they are on the awesome rides. You know they are taking care of you, but you also kind of want to stuff their mouth with a soft toy. After all, what are friends for?

7. Cry-babies

They are quite a common kind but they often exist in stealth mode and thus are difficult to spot. They will be absolutely fine before and throughout the ride, but the moment they step out of it, they will start complaining really loud about how that ride was the scariest thing that ever happened to them. They will tell it to you, your friends, your family, strangers and yes, you again!

Whatever kind of company you find yourself with, make sure that you take a trip to an amusement park near you this summer and enjoy the weather like it was meant to be enjoyed.

Also, click pictures of your friends and tell us which category they fall in by sharing it with #BIGTICKET or #kyazoongasummer. We would love to feature them on our wall!

Watching Cricket At Home vs. Watching it LIVE In The Stadium

A true cricket fan can cross every boundary to see his team play. Be it standing in front of a TV showroom watching the match from the roadside or burning a hole in his/her pocket to book the best view seats in advance, a true cricket fan will make sure that they doesn’t miss even a single ball bowled.But watching the match live in the stadium has a lot of perks that watching it at home can never compete with. Here’s a list of reasons why you should DEFINITELY watch your favorite cricket match #LIVE on your #BIGTICKET.

1. No more distractions!

The hurdles between you and your favorite sport are stronger with time now. We’re sure you all must have faced those days where you wouldn’t mind trading your kidney to watch the match without any disturbance but there it is that evil distraction, the dog that needs to be walked, the delivery boy who doesn’t have any change or Satan in any other form.But when you watch the match live from the stands, all such distractions are at bay; you are in your own safe haven.

2. The Team Spirit!

The team spirit in watching the match at the stadium can never match the level of watching it at home with a couple of friends eating chips off your couch. The joy of cheering out loud for your team, hi-fiving strangers on every 6 and letting out a sigh of relief in chorus on a dropped catch of your star batsman is something the comfort of your old couch can’t give you. You got to be there, watching the team sport, with a team.

3. Claim to fame

The cameras on the field pan across the stadium and catch a glimpse of an interesting expression, and then it stays there, watching the ‘lost in the moment’ look change to ‘oh I am on camera’ look. This face gets more TRP than faces on a typical daily soap. How would you like to be there? Flaunting your best expression, as the camera captures you and the crowd around you cheers for you and tries hard to fit in the frame. You’ll enjoy the paparazzi. Won’t you?

4. To be socially aLIVE

People click pictures of their sad little breakfast and you have to sit through watching it and bearing the boredom. Now it’s your turn to give something actually worth looking at to the people on your list. Live tweets, snaps, and Periscope streaming are the in-things in the social media sector and you can only do it when you are watching the match LIVE from the stands on your #BIGTICKET.

5. Despicable You!

Lean in for this one because it is last but certainly not the least, you should watch a match live on your #BIGTICKET because it makes other people envious of you. They wish they were there, like you are, watching your team play it like it never played before. They crave for the adrenaline, the family-like feeling among the strangers supporting the same team and the priceless feeling of going back home feeling like a winner when your team wins.Take it from us, you will like the feeling because if you have read it this far, you are a true cricket fan and you deserve to watch the best games LIVE.
