For those with arthritis or other leg or back problems that hinder walking for any long distance a vacation to somewhere like a Theme Park can cause significant problems. As with many vacations there is a lot of travelling on foot to be done between the attractions and your hotel and so it is no surprise that scooter rentals for the Theme Parks are popular with people looking to have a great holiday no matter what physical restrictions they have.
Scooters, also known as Electronic Convenience Vehicles or ECVs, can also be great for those with unexpected injuries – if you’ve just sprained or broken your ankle, for example, why hobble around the Theme Parks on crutches or, worse still, disappoint your family (and lose money) by cancelling your holiday, when you can rent a scooter to give you trouble-free movement in comfort.
Whatever your reason for renting a scooter for your vacation it is vitally important that you choose the right type of scooter for your holiday to give you the most freedom of movement and the highest level of comfort. Here are 3 tips to help you choose the right type of scooter for your needs.
Tip #1: Choose the most appropriate scooter for the weight of the rider. Exceeding the recommended weight will degrade the scooters performance in terms of both speed and daily battery length.
Tip #2: If you’re staying off Theme Park property or wish to visit other attractions, then choose a scooter that can be easily disassembled and transported in the trunk of your vehicle. The Pride GO-GO Elite Traveler Plus and the Pride Victory are both excellent choices.
Tip #3: If you are using a scooter for the first time, or desire a greater feeling of stability, then choose a 4-wheel rather than a 3-wheel scooter.
When looking at scooter rentals for theme parks it is highly recommended you try out a number of models before deciding which one to rent, ideally you would have a chance to sit on them and give them a test drive to check that you feel as comfortable as possible as you’ll be spending plenty of time using it.
