Gone On Vacation - Bummer Knees - 08-04-2007 07:12 PM
I will be gone for a few days, I will be leaving Sunday.
So I will post some tonight and early tomorrow.
My husband and I are taking the kids and getting away before school starts
We will be going to Kansas City for a couple of days to Worlds of Fun Amusement Park and then to Illinois and staying at a cabin on the Missippi River, visiting with friends.
I called the amusement park and they have electric wheel chairs for rent, has anyone ever used one at an amusement park?
I won't be able to do much walking, may have to do some sitting while the kids and Dad enjoy the rides. I do love to shop and they have lots of little shops at the park.

BK..this is great. I hope you have a great time. I have rented an electric wheel chair however, it was several years ago, just about 6 months after my diagnosis and I was using a chair all the time. Do you have any questions about it? What I had was not a wheelchair, it was a scooter. A wheelchair is much better for situation I think however and it is for me now. I hope you have a great time with your husband and kids...always nice to get away..Red

The information the park gave me was electric motorized wheel chairs are for rent.
There are lots of small hills in the park so I hope the chair works okay.

Have a great time , and most places now have w/chairs for rent, either electric or the regular ones if someone wants to push. We even rented one in Vegas from the casino we stayed at a couple of years back, for a friend. enjoy your trip.

Long time ago we went to disneyworld and At that time I watched ppl use wheelchairs They were taken right to thefront of the line and put on the rides along with family ... Seen that abused but It did work great .. Dont know if worlds do the same But I hope so and who knows you need to try a few just for laughs !
Wow my kids will be in one of the parks on thurs so look for redheads from Ia rofl .. good luck !!
You have fun and enjoy ... Cabining sounds so nice to me ... just get the famiy close and unwind !
