In addition to the vivid and exciting scenery you can capture while walking around an amusement park, taking photos from the rides will give you a new perspective. Make sure your camera strap is securely fastened across your body or wrapped around your wrist multiple times.
Slow-moving rides, such as Ferris Wheels, will give you the chance to take great aerial shots. On faster rides, such as roller coasters, set a quick shutter speed and try to plan your shots for the slowest parts of the ride. (But pay attention to the posted rules about photography—getting caught taking photos on a ride that forbids it could get you kicked out of the park.)
