What To Do With A Phone At A Theme Park

A trip to the amusement park is the kind of event that absolutely demands to be shared on social media.

Since you will without question be spending precious moments taking amazing photos so everyone knows what a great time you are having, leaving your phone at home is completely out of the question. 

Bringing your cell phone means that you will need a way to manage it.

No amusement park is going to let you hold onto your cell phone while you get spun around on a rollercoaster, which means that knowing what to do with a phone at an amusement park is a crucial piece of knowledge in order to get the most out of your day.

Fortunately, there are countless ways to manage your cell phone while you enjoy a fun day at the amusement park.

Take a bag

As far as options go when it comes to managing your phone during your amusement park trip, this is easily one of the most common approaches.

If you take a bag on your trip, this is a great way to keep your phone safely tucked away while you do all of the things that can’t be easily photographed and posted to Instagram.

This is an excellent approach as long as you are comfortable with carrying a bag around with you in order to manage it.

This does, of course, mean that you will have to handle an entire bag instead of just a phone, but bringing a bag comes with its own collection of perks by itself. 

This allows you to carry more things for your trip and can give you an easy way to manage it all in one place.

However, for some people, this might seem like a bigger problem than just managing a phone by itself, particularly if you have one of the phone cases that also doubles as a wallet.

Get a phone pouch

Phone pouches are increasing in popularity for people who want to be able to enjoy an active lifestyle without having to give up their beloved cell phone. 

These devices come in a variety of options and are perfect for a day at the amusement park because they give you a safe and easy way to manage your cell phone without having to get rid of it on rides. 

The most common versions of phone pouches include arm bands, lanyard pouches, and holsters.

These devicessafely and securely strap your devices to you and allow you to quickly and easily manage them while you enjoy your day of fun at the park.

They also come in a secure waterproof version that makes it possible for you to enjoy this useful tool while you spend a pleasant day at the waterpark.

Wear clothing that can securely hold a phone

In a world where we are all carrying things all of the time and slowly becoming more resistant to the idea of having to carry a bag, there are plenty of new clothing options available to help you carry your supplies without the need of a bag.

These clothes are usually designed with spacious and secure pockets intended to help you manage all of your most important personal affects without forcing you to carry a bag option with you.

For men and women, there are plenty of jackets and shirts designed with large zipped pockets that can keep your wallet, phone, and keys safe, even on a rollercoaster. 

These pockets are ideal for riding rides because no matter how you might get spun or how fast you might be going, these pockets will keep your phone safely attached to your body.

As an added bonus, many yoga pant brands are now making large and tight pockets that are perfect for holding your phone while you scream your head off during that big loop!

Get a locker

Making the decision to get a locker is a great way to manage your personal devices.

This allows you to securely keep anything that you want to take but don’t necessarily want on your body safe.

Options like this can be a preferable alternative to leaving a device unattended while on rides or at the waterpark.

The downside is that this option is usually relatively expensive, but that does not mean that it isn’t worth it.

As long as you are willing to pay a little money and keep your devices locked away, this a great option for making sure that you have one less thing to worry about on your trip. 

This does mean that you won’t be able to livestream every single minute of your trip, but it will keep your device safe and at the end of the day that’s probably better than risking it for some people.

Have a friend hold it

In the event that you don’t have any of the other options available to you, you can always tag a friend in and have them hold your phone for you in some capacity.

Chances are that someone in your group will have a bag or might be the kind of person who doesn’t want to go on certain kinds of rides.

Assuming that you know this friend is relatively responsible, it can be incredibly helpful to just let them be the guardian of your precious phone.

While it can be a pain having to ask someone else to hand it to you, it can sure beat carrying it yourself a lot of the time.


Since your phone is incredibly important, having a solid strategy to maintain it in a safe capacity while you enjoy your trip to the amusement park is incredibly important.

Fortunately, there are plenty of options available to you because of the fact that we are all absolutely addicted to keeping our phones on us at all times.

As long as you’re willing to spend a little money or get creative, you should be able to have your phone and keep it from flying off of your favorite rollercoaster too!
