As we start this insightful article, we need to acknowledge that establishing and running a park is not an easy job. There are a lot of dynamics involved requiring a whole lot of capital investment and enough staff to assist in the day-to-day running of the park. In this article, we pay particular attention to the inclusion of train rides in your park. What we are trying to determine is whether or not their inclusion is relevant concerning the maintenance of our natural environment.
One would argue that the length of the train tracks and the noise associated with the trains are sufficient to disrupt the nature of life especially in the park. For once, animals are known for their intensive sensitivity to non-natural phenomena and this may distort their lives. Therefore, this establishment of train rides in parks is a matter that needs to be looked at and thought of in greater detail.
The parks we are talking about here are the regular amusement parks where you take your kids or girlfriend to have fun. This is not to say that the discussion cannot be extended to include animal parks because at the end of the day, animals are still animals. There is no amount of domestication that can alter the very nature of these animals. Deep within, they will always be fascinated by artificial structures and this might or might not change the way they behave.
If your case is that of an amusement park, your main concern will be creating enough space for the train rides. You might need to reserve more than 5 miles of the park for the establishment of train rides for tourists. In our animal parks, the length of the railway might even go beyond 40 miles. The construction of a railway line that long specifically for the bemusement of tourists might be too much of an expenditure for some park owners.
However, there has been a rising trend in the number of parks that have included train rides as part of the experience provided to tourists. Surely, this must be due to some advantages that are inherent in such an expensive addition. We shall now continue with the rest of the discussion by taking a look at the benefits that accrue to the park owner and the park visitors alike as a result of there being train rides.
The first advantage, and one that accrues to the park owner, is that the inclusion of train rides will attract more visitors to the park. More visitors imply more money and more money means a lot of things to the park owner. The second benefit is enjoyed by the visitors. Train rides are a great way for the entire family to enjoy their day in the park. They get to see a larger extent of the park with just the single cost of riding the train.
Thirdly, one can argue that the inclusion of train rides in parks has in a way boosted the economy by providing jobs to would be jobless folks. We cannot always talk of fun while neglecting the social aspect of it. The wonderful experience of train rides is shared by all parties involved and it can be said that their relevance is firmly rooted in today抯 world than ever before.
