So whilst in America, I’ve seen a lot of things that Britain could do with having, because there are amazing things in America that could come in handy if the UK was to borrow them.
1. The Walmart Plastic Bag Swivel Thingy…
Sorry, I can’t find a picture or the actual name for it, but there is a thing in Walmart where the cashier can put your goods straight into the bags and swivel it round for you to put back in the trolley after it is scanned! That is a great idea! For us, it prevents the difficult and often awkward task of having to stand there and hold up the queue whilst we put a large amount of goods in plastic bags. We need this!
2. More Free Wi-fi Hotspots!
Believe me, I was taking my phone with me wherever we went, and most of the time we had free wifi! It’s always a nice thing – free Wi-Fi, but sadly in Britain, you don’t get many of them, and most aren’t even free and you have to ask for a passcode.
3. More Memorable Parking Spaces!
Sure, most people know where they parked their car, but theme parks make it all the more helpful by giving each sector of a car park a character. For example, one section of parking in Universal Orlando was ET, and another at Disney’s Magical Kingdom had different sections, one being Heroes and another Villains, we were in Scar and Jafar. It was much easier to remember. We don’t have it in England, we need it there!
4. More Visual Experiences!
I’ve been to a lot of parks and a lot of them have sights you can see rather than just having rides. As a person that doesn’t like rides much, having stuff you can see and interact with is always a good thing. Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Islands of Adventure is great as you can actually see and enter shops, and even see Hogwarts itself!
5. A Live Show at a Theme Park
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you could go and see the American Idol Experience, which was like seeing the show live. There was also Fear Factor Live at Universal Orlando, which was awesome to see the stunts live. I think it’d be great if a famous UK TV show set up a live version of the show at a theme park. There’s always something great about seeing a show live,
Those were my 5, but if you’re from the UK and have been to America, feel free to comment with your add-ons!
