How to Wait in Line for an Amusement Park Ride

How to Wait in Line for an Amusement Park Ride
Author Info
Updated: May 19, 2019

Sometimes, the most long and boring part of anyone’s day at an amusement park is waiting in lines, especially if the line stretches over two hours, the lines can sometimes feel like they aren’t moving at all. However, if you want to help avoid that feeling, and make the time in line go by fast, then begin reading this article.

Steps

1
Prepare yourself in advance. If you already know you’re going to a theme park that is known to have long lines, or if you’re going there during the peak season (school breaks, summer, etc.), then you should prepare yourself by bringing things for the wait such as a book, mp3 player, magazine, cell phone, etc.
2
Pick out the ride you want to go on. You may see a roller-coaster from a distance that you may think you really want to go on, but you should really get closer to it and take a look at the rules and what it is about. Choose carefully, because you might regret waiting a long time for a ride you found boring.
When you can see the rides, and you are unsure whether you should ride it, watch it go a couple times. While the entire ride may not be visible to you, parts of it will most likely be. This will aid you in your decision.

3
Get in the line. Before you get in the line, take a look at the wait time sign if they have one, and ask yourself “Is it really worth the wait?” If it is, go ahead and go in the line. If not, leave and find other ride that suits your interests.
The amount of time you should wait for a ride really depends on you and anyone else in your group. If you have people with you that you know simply cannot stand waiting, then if the wait seems a bit long, it may be best to skip the ride and come back to it later.
4
Stand in the line. If the sun is blazing, do your best to cover your head. This is because if you’re way too hot, you’re more likely to be conscious of the line is moving slowly. Your best bet is to check the weather before you leave. If you see it’s going to be 100 degrees, then dress lightly and bring a hat. If it’s going to rain, take an umbrella. Weather may not always be correct, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
5
Relax while you wait. If you’re over-excited about the ride and want the line to move faster, slip on your headphones and listen to either a slow song, or one of your favorites. Doing this will likely distract you in a good way, because you’ll be hearing music instead of focusing on all the people in the line.
Community Q&A
Question
I’m planning on getting on the Ghost Rider at Knott’s Berry Farm, but how can I handle the huge drops?
Community Answer
For the huge drops, remember you’re going to be safe. As long as you feel safe, you’ll have a good time.
Question
How do I help a friend on a rollercoaster?
Community Answer
If your friend is unsecure about rollercoasters, offer to lock arms while on the ride or maybe double check her seatbelt before descending from the station. Another idea is to describe the ride in advance for her, so she knows what to expect.
Question
I am going to Dorsey Park with my family. I already looked online and found a bunch of rides that I really, really want to go on, but my family is afraid of them. And my parents said I can’t ride alone. What do I do?

Community Answer
You might be too young to ride on these rides. Maybe let your family find rides they like. Make them create a list of the rides they enjoy the most. Then go over that list yourself, and choose the ones you’d be willing to go on.
Tips
If you are at the park with friends, bring a deck of cards. Several different card games can be played even when standing without a table. If you don’t know a game, then see if you can make one up on the fly.
Ask some of the workers who work there what their least busy day is and try to go then. Although the reason why is unknown, for most amusement parks that day is Tuesday.
Make friends in the line. You’ll have people to talk to and learn more about them and will make the line go faster. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, bring your own friends along with you so you’ll have company in every line that you have to wait in.
Try daydreaming about a place you’d love to visit one day, or something else you love. It will more than likely make the waiting time fly by.
Bring a drink or a snack for the wait. Especially if the wait was long, by the time you get on the ride the food or drink will most likely be finished.
Some rides split the line near the end according to what seat you want. If a short wait is your goal, then don’t choose the front or back because these are the most popular seats.
If the line is too long, wander off to do another ride with a shorter wait time and check back in an hour.
Warnings
Don’t bring anything valuable that you would hate to have stolen; most ride operators will have you leave your cell phone, mp3 player etc. in an unattended area during the ride. You can have a friend watch them for you if she/he goes on the ride before or after you do.
If you’re listening to music or reading, be sure you are paying attention for when the line moves. If you aren’t, and you hold up the line, you run the risk of other theme park visitors getting angry with you.
Some rides do not allow personal belongings at all, and require you to either rent a locker or leave them with a non rider. If you find this out when you get to the front of the line, then you may be required to step out of line and start all over again, so make sure you know where personal belongings need to be before you step in line.

How to Go to a Concert if You Are a

How to Go to a Concert if You Are a Teenager
Co-authored by wikiHow Staff
Updated: March 29, 2019 | References

Going to concerts and live performances is a lot of fun, but the concert experience can be daunting or overwhelming for younger attendees. As a teen, you’ll want to prepare for the event far in advance in order to ensure that your concert experience is enjoyable. By talking to your parents and making plans to stay safe throughout the event, you’ll be sure to have a great time at the concert.

Part One of Two:
Preparing for the Event

1
Check to make sure that the concert venue is for all-ages. Some venues, particularly those that serve alcohol, will only allow entry for guests who are over 21 years old. It’s best to research the venue’s age policies online or by phone before you make plans to attend a concert.

2
Ask your parents for permission. It’s best to check in with your parents before you buy tickets to make sure you’ll be allowed to go. Have a conversation with your parents to figure out how you will travel to and from the concert, and to talk about ground rules for staying safe at the event.[1]

3
Find a friend to go with. For your safety, it’s best not to attend concerts alone.reasons. Find at least one friend to go to the concert, and plan to stick together on the day of the event. If you’re having trouble finding company, consider posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see if other people in your social network are interested. [2]

4
Buy tickets. If the concert is for a popular band, figure out exactly when the tickets go on sale, and be prepared to buy them as soon as you can to guarantee the show won’t sell out. Ticketmaster.com sells tickets for bigger shows, but if you’re going to a smaller show, look online at the venue’s website for information on how to purchase tickets. Once you buy the tickets, print them and keep them in a safe place where you won’t risk losing them.[3]
Make sure you can afford the tickets before your purchase. If you can’t, ask your parents for a loan, and figure out how you can repay them through extra housework or an outside job.
Never assume you can buy tickets at the door, as you will run the risk of getting turned away.
Avoid buying tickets from online from resellers, who will likely try to scam you.
5
Research venue policies and regulations. Find the venue’s webpage to get a sense of what to expect, and to avoid any hassles the day of the concert. Figure out how early the doors will open, and whether or not you’ll be able to bring your own food/water. Be sure the venue is not 21+ so you won’t risk getting turned away at the door.
6
Coordinate transportation. Make a plan for how you will get to and from the concert venue. Ask your parents for a ride, and suggest a carpool if your friends will be going to the concert. If your parents are driving you, be sure to solidify pick up/drop off times and locations in advance of the concert. If you can’t find a ride, figure out how to travel via public transit.[4]
7
Listen to the music. If you don’t know the all of the bands who will be playing, it’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with their music ahead of time so that you can make the most of your concert experience.[5]
Part Two of Two:
Attending the Concert
1
Pack a small bag of the essentials. Bring a charged phone, cash (at least $20-30), a water bottle, sunblock (if the concert is outdoors), earplugs, and snacks. Make sure you pack your tickets![6]
2
Eat a meal before you leave for the concert. Concerts can be exhausting, and the food sold at concert venues is often overpriced, so you’ll want to fuel up beforehand to make sure you’ll have enough energy to enjoy yourself. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well.[7]
3
Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing. Concerts tend to get hot with crowds of people and lots of dancing, so light, loose clothes – like shorts and a t-shirt – are your best bet, and comfortable shoes are a must. If the event is outdoors, bring a hat to shade yourself from the sun, and if there’s a chance of rain, bring a rain jacket or poncho. Be prepared for rowdy crowds, so skip any dangly jewelry.[8]
4
Arrive early. Show up at least an hour in advance to guarantee you are able to get into the venue, find your seats, and get settled before the show begins. If your tickets are for standing room only, you will have a better view the earlier you arrive. If you want to be near the front for a large concert, consider showing up a few hours early.[9]
5
Take note of the exit locations. In case of emergency, you’ll want to know where you can exit as quickly as possible. If you’re with friends, choose a landmark near the exit where you can meet up in case you get separated. [10]
6
Stay hydrated. Especially if the concert is outdoors, you’ll be getting hot and sweaty, and you’ll need to drink water to curb the risk of dehydration. Bring your own water bottle, or be prepared to buy one at the event. Many outdoor venues have water refill stations for you to continue hydrating throughout the event. [11]
7
Take breaks when you need to. If you’re feeling tired from all the singing and dancing, don’t be afraid to step away from the crowd and take a rest. Find a place away from the crowd to sit down, cool off, and drink some water. You’ll enjoy the show much more if you take a break before you reach your limit.[12]
8
Exit safely. Once the concert is over, people tend to leave venue all at once. The rush can be overwhelming, and sometimes unsafe. Stick with your buddy and be careful not to fall. If big crowds are scary, consider skipping the encore and leaving the concert a few minutes before it ends.
9
Wind down after the concert. After a great concert, you’ll probably be a combination of exhilarated and exhausted. Once you get home, you’ll want to start winding down so you can get some rest. Be sure to drink some water, and consider eating a snack and/or watching some TV to help wind down.

Question
How old do I have to be to go to a BTS concert?
Community Answer
BTS concerts are all ages. If you go to Ticketmaster or the venue sites, it will most likely state how old you have to be to attend.
Question
As a 12-year-old, would I be able to go to a Twenty One Pilots Concert with my 17-year-old sibling?
Captainsprinkles
Community Answer
Yes, you would probably be able to go, but some venues require you to be 18 or older. Check the venue’s website, or give them a call and ask.
Question
How old do you have to be to go to a twenty-one pilots concert?
Community Answer
It depends upon the venue. Usually, it’s 16 if you’re without an adult.
Question
My sister and I are going to a Twenty One Pilots concert in 17 days. I am nine, and my sister is 5. Will we be allowed backstage to meet the band?
Community Answer

Question
How old do I have to be to go to a Fall Out Boy concert?
Community Answer
As long as the venue is not 18+, there is no minimum age to attend a concert.
Question
My parents are allowing me to go to a twenty-one pilots concert, but they are not going. You have to be over 16 to go by yourself (I’m 12), and none of my friends are able to come. What should I do?
Masterblocky50
Community Answer
Just ask your parents to take you into the concert. During the concert they could go out to eat or have a date night. If something happens during the concert just yell for help. As a fan of TOP as well, I know that Tyler/Security is always making sure everyone’s safe and happy. When the concert is over, just call them to be picked up. If you’re a girl make sure to be extra careful.
Question
How can I convince my parents to let me go to a concert?
Community Answer
Try showing them that you’re responsible and show them how much you love the artist. If they are worried about your safety, try to make them comfortable with it in whatever way you can – e.g., by having an adult with you, having your phone with you and calling them when you’re there, etc.
Question
How old do I have to be to go to a Pierce the Veil concert?
Community Answer
It depends on the venue. Check their website, or call them and ask their policy.
Question
My friend and I are 14, and we are going to a Shawn Mendes concert with no parents, will they let us in? We already have our tickets.
Community Answer
Check the music venue’s website. Look for a FAQ, most likely there will be a question/answer about age requirements. If you can’t find the information on the website, look for a phone number and call the venue and ask.
Question
How old do you have to be to go to a Skillet concert?
Community Answer
This depends on the venue in which they are performing. If it is an all-ages venue, anyone can go. Otherwise, most venues require you to be 18 or 21 to attend.

How to Go to Everland

How to Go to Everland
Co-authored by wikiHow Staff
Updated: March 29, 2019 | References

Everland Resort in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, is the largest theme park in the country. Everland provides several ways to get to the park, including a dedicated cab service and a shuttle bus. You can also get to Everland using public transportation or by driving. Decide which mode of transportation is best for you and make sure to purchase your tickets in advance.

Method One of Three:
Getting Direct Rides to the Park

1
Take an Evercab for a direct trip. Evercab is Everland’s cab service that will make one-way or round trips to the park. Evercab costs a flat rate of 177,257 WON ($158) as of November 2018 for a one-way ride to the park for 1 person. If you plan on traveling with more than 1 person, the price-per-person drops. To see a full list of rates or to make a reservation, call +82-2-863-3541 or visit https://everland.groundk.com/reservation.html.[1]
Evercab will pick you up directly from any location within Seoul.
If you are taking 4 people on a round trip, the total cost is 439,735 WON ($392).
This is one of the more expensive traveling options.

2
Ride the shuttle bus to Everland for an affordable option. The Everland shuttle bus is tailored to take guests directly to Everland. You can purchase tickets by calling 031-281-3237 or visiting http://www.worldbus.co.kr/everland/index.php. The bus leaves once a day in the morning around 9 a.m. and leaves the park at 7:30 p.m. To see a full schedule of pickup and drop off points, visit https://www.everland.com/web/multi/english/everland/everland_guide/transportation/Transportation05.html.[2]
This bus will pick up people from several bus stations in Seoul, Incheon, and Gyeonggi-do.
Tickets will cost you anywhere from 8,000-12,000 WON, or $7-$11.
Your ticket includes a trip to and from the park.
3
Drive to Everland if you have a car. If you’d rather drive to Everland, you can do so by heading south on the Gyeongbu Expressway. You can use GPS map apps or websites like http://www.gosur.com to navigate from whatever location you’re coming from. Input Everland’s address, “199, Everland-ro, Pogok-eup, Cheoin-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do” into the application and follow the directions that it provides.
Parking in Everland is provided free of charge.
Method Two of Three:
Using Public Transit
1
Take the 5002 bus if you’re near Gangnam Station. The 5002 bus at exit 10 in Gangnam Station runs every 20 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to midnight. You can purchase a fare on the bus. Take the bus at Gangnam Station and ride it for 40-50 minutes before getting off at the Everland stop.[3]
Purchase bus tickets to and from Everland at the station.
The 5002 bus costs around 2,500 WON, or about $2.
2
Ride the 5700 bus if you’re near Gangbyeon Station. If you’re closer to Gangbyeon Station, take the 5700 bus at exit 1, in the middle of the road. The bus ride will take a little over an hour. Get off at the Everland stop.[4]
The 5700 bus costs around 2,500 WON, or about $2.
3
Catch a shuttle bus from a subway station to save money. There are several shuttle bus stops that will take you to the park and back to where you’re staying. Visit https://www.everland.com/web/multi/english/everland/everland_guide/transportation/Transportation05.html to see a bus schedule and to book your ticket in advance. Arrive at the station at the designated pick up time for a direct trip to Everland.[5]
For instance, the shuttle leaves the Gangnam station at 9:30 a.m. and leaves the park at around 7:30 p.m.
The shuttle bus also departs from the City Hall Station Exit 5, Seoul Station Exit 10, and Gwangmyeong-Cheolsan Station Exit 4.
You can get to each station by taking any connecting route in the Seoul Metropolitan Subway.
The shuttle bus costs 12,000 WON, or about $10.
Method Three of Three:
Planning Your Trip
1
Plan your trip in the spring or fall for the best weather. Spring in South Korea is April to June and is often regarded as the best time to visit. The country experiences mostly sunny days during this time and flowers are in bloom. If you prefer slightly cooler weather, consider visiting in the fall months of September through November.[6]
It’s best to avoid going to South Korea in the summer because it’s monsoon season when the country regularly experiences heavy rainfall.
If you are visiting in the fall or winter, make sure to bring a jacket to keep you warm in the chilly weather.
You can usually wear T-shirts and shorts in the spring and summer.
2
Get your travel documents in order if you’re visiting from another country. In order to visit the park, you’ll need to travel to South Korea if you don’t already live there. Obtain or renew your passport 2-3 months in advance. You should also check whether you need a travel visa.Certain countries have a visa waiver agreement with Korea. Once you have all your documents, go online to purchase plane tickets to South Korea.
Visit https://www.hikorea.go.kr/pt/en/info/popup/icis/VisaWaiver_pop.htm to see whether your countries residents need to get a travel visa to visit South Korea.
Incheon International, Gimpo International, and Jeju International are the largest airports in South Korea.[7]
To save money, buy your plane tickets at least 90 days in advance.[8]
3
Reserve lodging accommodations if necessary. If you don’t live in Korea and plan on staying for more than 1 day, you should reserve accommodations before you leave for your trip. Take a look online for hotels in Seoul or near Everland and book your room.[9]
If you’d like to stay close to the park, the Ramada Yongin, Soom Forest, and Q Hotels are within a mile from Everland.
4
Purchase your tickets to Everland online. Visit https://www.everland.com/ to purchase your tickets for the days that you plan on visiting the park. A 1-day ticket for an adult costs 54,000 WON, or about $48, while a children’s ticket costs 43,000 WON, or about $38. The tickets include a full day of access to the rides at the amusement park and admission to the Hoam Art Gallery.[10]
There are also 2-day tickets available available for 84,000 WON, or about $75.
Children must be 2-18 to receive the child discount.
You can also purchase night tickets, or tickets after 5:00 p.m., for 45,000 WON, or about $40, for adults and 36,000 WON, or about $32, for children.
Purchase a Qpass with your tickets for an extra 3,000 WON, or about $3, to skip the queues when you’re at the park.[11]
5
Plan which rides and attractions you want to enjoy. There are 5 different zones in Everland that include European Adventure, Magic Land, American Adventure, Global Fair, and Zootopia. Each zone has its own unique attractions and events. If you are traveling with seniors or young children, Global Fair, Magic Land, and Zootopia have suitable rides and attractions.[12]
European and American Adventure have roller coasters like the T-Express and Gyro VR.
Global Fair has retail shops that include brands like Etude House and LINE Friends. These shops are great for adults and seniors.
Magic Land has rides that are suitable for children.
Zootopia has a variety of different zoo animals including pandas and giraffes.
6
Look at the schedule to see which special events are happening. Visit https://www.everland.com/web/multi/english/everland/everland_guide/schedule/show.html to see a full schedule of events. Each zone will have special events depending on which day you go.[13]
Zootopia has events like the “Panda World Animal Talk” and “Finding Superbirds.”
There are often parades and festivals every day in each zone.
The Global Fair has the Victorian Theater which hosts live performances.[14]
7
Plan on where to eat while at Everland. There are a variety of unique restaurants in each zone. If you want a large selection, Holland Village in the European Adventure zone has 12 European style restaurants. If you want Korean cuisine, you can visit Han-ga-ram to get authentic Korean food. See an entire list of eateries at http://www.everland.com/MultiLanguage/english/everland_guidemap_english.pdf.[15]
You can also bring outside food into the park if you want to save money.

How to Meet Band Members at a Concert

How to Meet Band Members at a Concert
Co-authored by wikiHow Staff
Updated: July 19, 2019 | References

It’s totally normal to want to meet the members of your favorite band. After all, when you see them in concert, you’re literally in the same room with them. Of course, you can’t just nudge your way to the stage and hope for the best, but you can improve your chances of meeting the band. To make your experience truly memorable, don’t forget to make a good impression and follow some rules of etiquette.

Part One of Three:
Improving Your Odds of Meeting the Band

1
Join the band’s fan club. Many fan clubs get secret meet-and-greets before or after the show. This can give you more time to talk to them. Be prepared to pay annual membership fees. Some clubs limit the number of meet-and-greets you can have each year.[1]

2
Form connections with the band online. Follow the band on social media. Get involved in chats or “follow-back” parties they host. Make sure you’re chatting with a verified account. On Twitter and Facebook, verified accounts usually have white checkmarks in blue circles.[2] You could say:
“I can’t believe you wrote that guitar solo in just 15 minutes. That’s amazing!”
“I was so psyched to find out you like rock climbing. I’ve been doing it for a few years now. If you’re ever in my city, I can show you the gyms with the best climbing walls.”

3
Ask for introductions within your network. Do this if you’re lucky enough to have a friend or relative in the music business. You’ll probably have the most luck if you know a roadie or someone who works in a recording studio. However, it never hurts to ask your friend who writes for a music magazine or cousin who works as a DJ.
4
Enter contests for backstage passes. Listen to your local radio stations when tickets go on sale. Be prepared to answer a trivia question or call in at exactly the right time. If you don’t have time to surf the radio for hours, search online. Many stations will announce these contests on their websites.
5
Buy VIP tickets. They cost extra, but you’ll be guaranteed to briefly meet the band. Don’t get your hopes up. You won’t be able to hang out for too long. Most sessions only last long enough to get an autograph or quick snapshot.[3]
6
Search online for signings near you. Many bands sign tee shirts, CDs, autograph books, etc. at music festivals like Coachella or Glastonbury. On the day of the signing, check the band’s website or social media page for a specific time and location at the festival. Get there early, since most signings last for a short time.[4]
Bands also have signings at music stores when their new albums launch. If you have a music store in your community, keep an eye out when you know the new single is being released.
7
Arrive at the venue a few hours early. If the concert doesn’t have reserved seating, this is your chance to get as close to the stage as possible. If there is reserved seating, you might still be able to catch the band arriving for their soundcheck. Make sure you’re standing at the back entrance reserved for the band. Do this with a few friends, since many back entrances are in dark alleyways.[5]
8
Hang around after the show. Find out ahead of time from crew members or other fans where the band will be exiting. You don’t want to be behind the venue if the band will be exiting through a side door. Leave the concert a bit early to get a good spot. Just stick to legally designated areas to avoid getting arrested![6]
9
Attend a concert at a smaller venue. Older, more established bands sometimes play at local clubs, bars, and casinos. Of course, you must be old enough to legally drink alcohol and/or gamble to enter. If you’re under legal drinking and/or gambling age, some bands might still play at state and county fairs. Smaller venues like these can improve your chances of meeting the band.
Part Two of Three:
Making a Good Impression
1
Read music magazines for background info. Look up the band’s information on their official website or in magazines (or their companion websites) like Rolling Stone or The NME. Read up on the band’s history, backstories behind your favorite songs, and the band members’ likes and dislikes. This will give you something to talk about.[7]
Choose your sources wisely. Wikipedia can be edited by anyone. Third-party blogs and fan sites aren’t always reliable. You don’t want to embarrass yourself by talking about a rumor as if it were true.
2
Re-listen to the band’s music. Use it as an experience. Focus on the moods or emotions each song evokes. Listen for interesting changes in chords or keys. Pick out any catchy symbols or metaphors in the lyrics. Use these as something to talk about when you meet the band.[8]
3
Practice what you want to say. Don’t worry about memorizing a script. Just have a few handy talking points ready. Point out how one or two of their songs have made an impact on your life. If they influenced you to pursue a career in music, mention that. Avoid over-the-top statements like declarations of love or anything else that might make you seem like a crazed fan. You could say:[9]
“I really love the riffs in ‘Stairway to Heaven.’ That’s what inspired me to start playing the guitar.”
“After I saw you profiled on ‘Behind the Music,’ I decided to pursue a career in music journalism.”
4
Watch what you eat. Eat energizing foods like leafy greens, fruits, and whole grains to keep you going through the excitement. If you eat right before the concert, avoid garlic, onions, or other foods that can make you gassy or give you bad breath. To be on the safe side, pack some mints to chew before you meet the band.[10]
5
Pack toiletries. Unless you’re a seasoned pro around famous musicians, you’ll be nervous, which will make you sweaty. Pack a travel-size deodorant to apply right before you plan to meet the band. If you wear makeup, bring your facial powder to touch up shiny spots. Have a makeup sponge on hand to blot any eyeliner or mascara that might have smeared (unless, of course, that’s the look you’re going for).[11]
Part Three of Three:
Following Proper Etiquette
1
Act calmly. Don’t scream or coo. Talk to them the way you talk to your friends. If you get too excited, they might think you’re just a crazed fan. Famous people are just as human as you are. Most of them prefer fans to treat them like everyday people.[12]
2
Give them space. Don’t interrupt them if they’re eating or talking to someone. Ask permission before making any physical contact. An unexpected hug might freak them out. Finally, show other fans the same respect you’d expect by not hogging the band for yourself.[13]
3
Ask permission before taking pictures. This includes still pictures and video. The last thing you want is to embarrass your favorite musician by recording them in a touchy moment. If you give them a heads-up, they’ll have a chance to straighten up before you snap a picture or record a video.[14]
Be respectful if they don’t want to appear in a picture. Everyone has a bad hair or outfit day. If that’s the case, opt for a short conversation. That memory might be greater than a picture.
4
Show interest in their work. Compliment their performance if you’re talking to them after the show. Give positive feedback about past performances you’ve seen for pre-show meet-and-greets. If possible, talk to them about their work or side projects, especially if they write or produce for another band.[15]
5
Use discretion when asking questions. Ask questions about their approach to music, how they warm up, or what inspired them to start performing. Even if you’re their biggest fan, there’s always something new to learn. However, you should avoid asking personal questions, especially about their love lives or family lives. This will only make them uncomfortable.[16]
Community Q&A
Question
I have liver cancer and need a liver transplant one of my last wish is to the Band Kansas
Community Answer
First of all, I hope you can get that transplant as soon as possible! As for meeting the band, I would suggest contacting the band through their official website and making your case. You could also check into local or national charities that grant cancer patients such wishes.
Question
I got standard tickets to a concert with VIP Area/Club/Lounge access included. Does that mean I get to meet anyone or get autographs?
Community Answer
It would probably say so on the tickets if it did. If it’s a smaller venue and a lesser known band or artist, it’s possible.
Question
What do I do if I don’t have the money for a VIP pass?
Kathryn Griffith
Community Answer
You could always wait outside for the band/artist you want to meet. You’ll have to try to avoid security and figure out where they’ll exit, though.
Question
Would it help if I follow the band on Twitter, Facebook etc. to get updates?
Community Answer
This would be a great idea. Nowadays bands, celebrities, etc. post updates about where they’re going and what they’re doing. If you know who their manager is and/or what record label they are signed to, follow them as well.
Question
Is it best to be in the front or the back for a meet and greet?
Community Answer
The front is better because the celebrity hasn’t met anyone yet. So they should be more happy to see you.
Question
How can I take gifts to my favorite band before a show?
Community Answer
Try giving the gift to the band preforming before them (if there is one), and see if they would get it to them for you.
Question
Can people wait behind the arena/stage after the show?
Community Answer
Normally only the V.I.Ps have access to that area and the guards will kick everyone else out. It’s possible if you beg them enough they will let you hang around. It happened to a friend of mine.
Question
How can I get an autograph at a music festival?
Community Answer
Some festivals, like the Warped Tour or Download Festival, have free signings or meet and greet opportunities. Sometimes there are also paid-VIP options. At any of these, you might be able to get an autograph.
Question
Can I meet the band after a concert if I buy V.I.P. passes?
Community Answer
Yes, V.I.P. passes include a “meet and greet” session.
Question
How can I find out where the celebrity will leave from after a concert?
Community Answer
Station a person at each exit and supply everyone with walkie-talkies. Whoever spots the celebrity can quickly communicate the location to everyone else.
Tips
Have a pen and paper on hand if you want autographs. Bring a permanent marker if you want them to sign a photograph, poster, or tee shirt.
Warnings
Don’t go backstage unless you have a VIP pass or other official badge from the band or a local radio station. Otherwise, you could get arrested.
Don’t stalk the band at the airport, at their hotel, or near their tour bus. Stick to the areas legally designated for fans.
Never meet a band member in private. Just because they’re famous, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re honorable. Always bring one or more friends with you.

How to Become a Celebrity

How to Become a Celebrity
Author Info | Reader-Approved
Updated: September 11, 2019 | References

These days, it is a lot easier to become a celebrity. Social media makes it easier and faster to connect with large groups of people. Getting to celebrity status, however, takes time and commitment. It won’t happen overnight, but there are few ways to make it more likely to happen.

Part One of Three:
Setting the Stage

1
Choose your type of celebrity. There are lots of different kinds of celebrities from singers and actors to bloggers, fiction writers, humanitarians, models, or, even, chefs. To become a celebrity, you have to pick an area to become a celebrity in. Simply ‘being a celebrity’ isn’t going to get you very far, as it is too vague a goal to work towards.
It’s also good to decide whether you’re looking for that 15 minutes of fame or whether you want your celebrity to be a lifelong endeavor. The former is easier to accomplish, but won’t give you much lasting power. The latter takes time and effort to accomplish, but will last much longer.

2
Practice. If you’re wanting to be a celebrity at something, you’re going to have to work at it until you’re at a level that makes people want to invest in you. While it’s true that celebrities aren’t always the best at what they do, they still tend to be good at it, whether it’s acting, singing, writing, or cooking.[1]
Put in 1 hour every day at your chosen field. This will help get you focused on your creative endeavor and keep you focused towards your goal, which is having people know you and your work.

3
Be creative. There is a lot of the same old same old out there, and it is true that copy cats can become well known (think the many copy cats of books like Twilight or Harry Potter), but it’s the original product that is remembered the best.
This means, you can use the work of others as a jumping off place. You’ll need to add your own flare, or individuality to what you’re presenting. For example: if you want to write a vampire novel, that’s great! But instead of copying the Anne Rice or Twilight formula of pretty immortal vampires, come up with something unusual about your vampires, something that readers will be intrigued by and remember.
Being creative basically means having something that people will remember, because it stands out. Of course, this can backfire if you’re too focused on complete originality (there is no such thing), but you should tease out what specific and original thing you have to offer, because that will help when you’re selling your project.

4
Study celebrities in your chosen field. You need to see what is popular in your chosen field to know how to market yourself so that people want to see you and you’ll get a good idea the things you want to avoid and the things you want to emulate.
See how those celebrities got famous. Chances are, however, you won’t see all the background work that went into getting them to their celebrity status, but you will be able to see where they started.
For example: a lot of celebrities talk about their early years and what they did to further their careers. Study how and where they got the break that allowed them to become a celebrity and how much work they had to do simply to get to that place.
5
Locate people who can help you. Part of becoming a celebrity is about who you know and who is helping you achieve your goal. This doesn’t necessarily mean befriending a celebrity, but it is good to find someone in the industry to act as a sort of mentor, to help you avoid pitfalls.
You’ll want to hire, or at least speak with a marketing professional, since a lot of getting famous comes through marketing yourself and you’ll want, if possible, to have an expert’s opinion on how best to market yourself.
You really will want to acquire a mentor of some sort, someone who has experience with the area in which you’re interested in becoming a celebrity. For example: if you’re wanting to become a published (and celebrity) author, seek advice from other writers.
Look around your city or town and see if there are others who are going for the same goal and work to help one another out.
Part Two of Three:
Becoming a Celebrity
1
Develop your image. This is a version of you, since you don’t want to pretend to be someone else, but a more idealized version of you. It’s the person who you’ll be publicly and which you’ll capitalize on when you’re marketing yourself.
Basically, there are two different people in this equation. There’s the real you, which is fallible, imperfect and then there’s the idealized you (which is the one that you’re going to be selling). The idealized you is perfect, amazing and awesome.
The times when you need to use this image are when you’re selling yourself and your product (book, singing, cooking, etc.) to others, whether it’s the general public or a publisher or music producers. Just remember, the idealized you only needs to be on for a short period of time, and then you can go back to being your usual self.
2
Market yourself. This is the big one, because if you can’t market yourself you’re not going to be a celebrity. People who make celebrity status are the ones who create an image and then know how to effectively sell that image to whatever industry they want to be part of, as well as to the general public.[2]
Explain why you’re unique. Part of marketing yourself is to show why people should be interested in you. What is it about your work and your presence that people should like.
Be persistent. Marketing yourself means being visible and being visible means you have to keep marketing yourself. For example: if your book keep getting rejected from publishers, submit things (like short stories) to literary magazines to get writing credits that will help your writer’s image.
Before you can go on big media circuits to the Daily Show or Ellen, you’ll need to set yourself up on local t.v. and radio, so that people will be able to see that you’re a good person to interview and that you are providing interesting and unique product. When you’ve gotten yourself set up in whatever it is you want to become a celebrity in, contact your local news outlets and let them know what you’re doing. Again, be persistent. If they aren’t immediately interested, keep doing what you’re doing and keep letting them know what you’re up to.
3
Use social media. Social media and the Internet have helped a lot of people gain some amount of celebrity (or notoriety) and so it’s definitely an avenue you want to consider when you’re attempting to become a celebrity. While it’s probably not best to rely on social media alone, it can definitely help.[3]
One of the most important aspects of social media is having a constant internet presence. Set up a website that showcases your talents. Get on YouTube and create a vlog. Become part of the Tumblr and Twitter communities. You can talk about things other than your talent (and should because otherwise people will lose interest). You want to create an interest in you, so make sure you’re using the idealized you, because you are still marketing yourself in these interactions.
Look at people who have achieved fame through social media (especially through YouTube) and consider what they did and how they did it. Justin Bieber is one of the most obvious ones, as he was discovered through his YouTube videos, but again it was perseverance and talent (he does have musical talent) that helped cement what he created by putting himself out there.
Another example could be John Green who does YouTube videos back and forth with his brother Hank Green, but who has also become a bestselling author. He created the groundwork to delve into writing because he already had a following and had already, in a sense, proved that his image was marketable. Proving yourself marketable through social media, can greatly help your marketability in the long-term.
4
Develop a relationship with other celebrities. A good way to break into a field is to have someone who is already a success in that. It isn’t easy to just ‘make friends’ with a celebrity, since a ton of people are already trying that.
Approach them in a public setting, if you can. For actors, or writers, there are workshops and panels that they sit on for events that you can attend and meet them. You can also connect with a lot of celebrities through social media, where you can ask them for advice.
Sometimes it’s good if you have a moment with them to ask for tips on how they got to where they are. Many people are happy to share their advice and their experiences with someone who is interested.
Part Three of Three:
Maintaining Celebrity Status
1
Keep innovating your ideas. One you’ve achieved your celebrity status, you’ll want to keep a hold of it. A good way to do that is to change things up. Experiment with different ideas and options.
Do more than one thing. If you’re a singer, for example, try out dancing or modeling or acting. Branch out into comedy. Utilize these things in your music.
2
Maintain a good relationship with your fans. Your fans are the ones who got you to the place you’re at, through their own devotion to you and by passing the word about you along to other people. Treat them with respect. Thank them in interviews and in person.
Consider occasionally releasing something free for them (a free story download, or a free song).
If someone (especially a fan) offers criticism of whatever you’re doing, don’t get angry at them. Instead, if it’s abusive, respond appropriately by blocking them or having the authorities deal with them (this can mean something like the admins on Twitter, etc.; it doesn’t necessarily mean the police), and if it’s not abusive, respectfully engage the person to find out where they are coming from.
3
Use your status positively. If you’ve become a celebrity it means that a lot of people are watching you and learning from you and taking what you say as the gospel. There’s a lot of responsibility that comes with making that sort of impression on a large group of people.
Organize and participate in fundraisers for good causes (ending hunger, making sure everyone has access to health care and clean water, ending slavery, and sex trafficking). Give money to these causes
Raise awareness for these issues through social media and through your own work.
Community Q&A
Question
How do I become a celebrity if I don’t have any talent?
Community Answer
Everyone has a talent. You just need to tap into yours. And there’s no way you could do that if don’t step out of your comfort zone. Try new things. And if it fails, try being the most authentic version of yourself. Look how far it got Cardi B.
Question
What do I need to do to become an actress?
Community Answer
Take part in a local theater group to be sure of your career choice, then you could start searching for auditions on the internet. Start small, most of the actors you see on screen now were in the same position as you once. Most started off in small roles, then got more and more famous as their roles got more important.
Question
I don’t use any social media. How do I become a celebrity?
Community Answer
Emily Blunt, a successful and well-known actress, also does not use social media. While it is a recommend method to gain fans and become known, you can rely on building yourself in your skill with auditions or practice, and find an agent or someone to represent you. Eventually, your reputation will grow on its own without any social media.
Question
How long will it take for me to become a celebrity?
Community Answer
There’s no set amount of time. Some people become celebrities overnight when they post a popular YouTube video. Other people might work for years to become a celebrity.
Question
How do I sing better than I already sing?
Community Answer
Practice. You can always improve your skills, no matter what they are. Practice makes perfect.
Question
How do I become a child celebrity when my parents won’t allow it?
Community Answer
The best thing is to work out what you want to do. Once you’ve worked this out, practice and study for the future. If you show enough dedication, your parents may let you as they realize how much you want this.
Question
I want to be a singer. How can I think of ideas for songs?
Community Answer
You can find ideas by going outside or maybe based on what’s happened in your life.
Question
How can I be famous but still be a good person?
Community Answer
Do good things with your fame. Speak about important things that are happening in the world, donate to charities, be a role model, and always be polite to fans.
Question
Can I become a famous person if I like to sing and dance?
Community Answer
Absolutely. Lady Gaga, for example, became famous through her skills in both singing and choreography, as have many others.
Question
What if I don’t become one?
Community Answer
If you don’t become one, you will survive. Most people aren’t celebrities, and they’re doing just fine. If you want to be a celebrity, work hard for your dream, but accept the reality that it may just not be in the cards for you.

Tips
Always be positive don’t let anyone look you down because you are young set examples for the believers.
Always stay positive and never give up.
A lie can travel half way around the world, while the truth is just putting on its shoes…be yourself!
If you don’t shoot to stardom straight away, don’t worry! No celebrity got there easily, just keep trying and don’t give up! Don’t expect to shoot to fame, because it may take a few years to become a worldwide celebrity.
If someone in your family is famous, ask them to help you.
Don’t use your fame in a bad way. Support local charities with some of your well earned money and you might get a shoutout on the news!
Never give up and believe in yourself because you can do it.
The haters are going to hate but don’t let that stop you.
Start a web show or create a magazine for your city or community.
Have as many connections as possible, including other celebrities.
Warnings
Be aware of scams. Submissions to talent agencies should be free. If anyone demands your money for it, do not listen to them.
Contrary to popular belief, being a celebrity is not always easy. Once you are famous, your personal life is no longer your own. Try to keep it separate as much as you can.

ow to Find Used Buses

How to Find Used Buses
Author Info
Updated: July 28, 2015

Whether you need a transportation vehicle to haul students, to transport your band or simply to have enough room to move items that you sell, knowing how to find used buses and how to purchase them will give you a tremendous cost savings over trying to find anything new. Your search will depend on your budget and how far away you are willing to find the bus, but you can easily track down the right vehicle for you.

Steps

1
Start your used bus search locally.
Check out the newspaper classified section to see if there are any used buses for sale.
Also watch the newspaper for any local auctions that are selling used buses.
Check out the inventory of local automobile dealerships online. While most dealerships do not list their entire inventory in their print advertising, you can generally find it on the website.

2
Move out to a regional search.
Repeat the same steps as you would for a local search, but do so using online tools for the closest big city.
Review the online version of the newspaper of the closest large metropolitan area near you.
Watch the online newspaper for auctions. You might even be able to flag the key term to alert you, if the online newspaper has that feature.
Check out automobile websites in that area to search their entire inventories.

3
Switch to a more comprehensive web search for your used bus search.
4
Follow a few general rules about purchasing a used bus.
Don’t purchase a vehicle that is heavily rusted.
Make sure that you are aware of the status and origin of any replacement parts.
Try to not purchase a used bus that needs a lot of work done to it. You could invest more into repair than it is worth.
Determine the needs of your organization or your personal needs before settling on a bus type or model.
Have an inspection on any used bus that you are considering for purchase.
Verify that the bus you are looking at has a legitimate title before purchasing the vehicle.
5
Make sure that you have a business plan in place to handle the cost of the bus. You want to include all of the numbers associated with bus ownership including cost of the vehicle, insurance, licensing fees, maintenance, repair figures and/or cost for training of the driver.
Tips
Speak to your insurance agent about the increase your insurance bill will see if and when you add a used bus to your collection of vehicles. You will probably see a large increase in premium due to the enormous liability that a bus can mean to you personally or to your organization.

How to Ride a Personal Watercraft (PWC)

How to Ride a Personal Watercraft (PWC)
Author Info
Updated: June 13, 2018

Personal Water crafts have been around since the 1960s starting with Bombardier but quickly brought to popular market by Kawasaki Jet Ski. If you want to learn to ride a PWC, read the following steps.

Steps

1
Securely attach the PWC lanyard to your life jacket which has to be approved by the Coast Guard

2
Insist that all operators and passengers wear Coast Guard-approved life jackets at all times.

3
Insist that all operators know and observe the navigation rules of the state.

4
Observe the age-limit rules for all operators to be at least 16 years old.

5
Make sure that there is nothing in the water that could clog the water intake grate and that the PWC is started or ran in water AT LEAST 3 feet (0.9 m) deep. PWC engines can suck rocks and debris from the bottom in shallow waters resulting in a damaged or clogged impeller. Never operate a PWC in shallow water.
6
Like any other boat, look around before starting and slowly leave the dock.
7
Observe and pay attention to your PWC’s fuel level.
8
Idle in residential coves and slow-no-wake zones and do not exceed 5 mph (8.0 km/h).
9
Pay attention to changing weather conditions, such as thunderstorms that produce lightning, hailstorms, or winds that can produce huge waves and choppy waters.
10
Pay attention to submerged rocks, obstacles or hazards as well as currents and tide levels.
11
Know the rules. All boats which are underway and up on-plane are required to be AT LEAST 100 feet (30.5 m) from other boats and AT LEAST 150 feet (45.7 m) from shore or docks. The same rules apply to PWCs.
12
Pay attention to your surroundings and be polite and courteous to other boats, giving them a wide operating gap to navigate. Boats generally travel in a consistent linear pattern whereas PWC operators often ride in impulsive, erratic “freestyle” patterns of S curves, circles and figure eights, which substantially increase the potential for collision with a boat and may run afoul of the “rules of the road”.
Spatial disorientation and inattention can quickly result by being lost in the moment but increase the risk of being hit by another boat after having quickly but unwittingly maneuvered the PWC directly into the path of another boat’s immediate strike zone. Freestyle riding that includes radical maneuvers, high-speed spins, carves, jumps and tricks should be performed in a non-residential cove or remote area of the lake that is not subject to frequent boat traffic.
13
Do not jump the wake of another boat or linger behind a boat similar to as if the boat was pulling a water skier.
14
Do not spray other boats or docks with water while underway.
15
Do not weave through congested boat traffic.
16
When traveling with other PWCs, consolidate together as a small operating unit when navigating congested traffic with the intent of staying clear of other boats as a pack.
17
Do not harass or antagonize wildlife, such as duck or marine animals.
18
Be conscientious about how other users are using the reservoir, lake or park. Many other people came to the same place for peace and quiet. If it appears that PWC usage is infringing upon the rights of others to have solace, then ride to areas away from other people where no one will be disrupted. Being a public nuisance puts the entire sport at risk for everyone to face PWC bans and heighten restrictions.
19
Be polite to other boaters: everyone has the right to be on the water together. Respect begets respect.
Warnings
A younger crowd could be more prone to show-off or attempt radical maneuvers without paying much attention to their surroundings which is the number one cause of collision-type accidents.
Excessive speed, inappropriate speed for the conditions, inattention, carelessness, reckless operation, alcohol consumption and willful or unintentional violations of the “Rules of the Road” are the leading or contributing factors toward PWC accidents.
A Personal Watercraft is not a toy. According to the United States Coast Guard, a PWC is classified as a “boat” which is subject to the same laws as any other vessel on the water. PWCs may endure greater scrutiny as they are required to yield to less-maneuverable vessels and are also restricted to day use due to lack of nighttime navigation lights, vessel length and seating configuration in which the rider is in closer proximity to the water.
Like all boats, nearly all PWCs do not have brakes, airbags or seat belts. Most PWCs also lack off-throttle steering which can easily cause a rider to unintentionally collide with another object due to inability to steer the watercraft unless throttle is applied – adding to increased risk of injury or death.
Speed on the water is relative to two to three times the speed on land. Highways speeds are typically 75 mph (121 km/h) whereas waterway traffic speeds for “runabout” boats less than 26 feet (7.9 m) is typically 25 to 40 mph (40 to 64 km/h) when underway and up on-plane.

How to Repair Fiberglass Finishings on Boats, Cars and other Objects

How to Repair Fiberglass Finishings on Boats, Cars and other Objects
Author Info | Reader-Approved
Updated: August 19, 2019

Use this procedure to make small fiberglass repairs to cars, boats, or other fiberglass objects. The procedure is especially useful for marine applications. The procedure covers basic repairs, not cosmetic repairs, and does not include instructions for applying gel coat.

Steps

1
Measure your damaged area. If it is larger than a quarter, you will use epoxy resin for this repair, otherwise, use polyester resin. Slower-curing composites will have a greater strength. Unless UV Cured coatings are used.

2
Note: Resin cures best above 18 degrees Celsius (65 fahrenheit) and in moderate humidity.

3
Note: Polyester resin is porous and may not be suitable for use in areas which will be frequently underwater.

4
Select your glass reinforcement. If your damaged area is extensive or is in a structural area of the object you are repairing, you will need to use some form of glass in the repair itself. Smaller repairs that require strength reinforcement may use fiberglass filler, otherwise use fiberglass cloth.
5
Clear loose pieces from the damaged area and clean the area with acetone.
6
Tape off the area to be repaired with masking tape.
7
Mix resin and hardener, in the proportion recommended on the packaging, for a total volume twice that of the area to be repaired. Use the cup and stirring utensil.
8
Caution: avoid contact with skin, use eye and breathing protection.
9
If using fiberglass filler, mix the filler into the resin until the consistency is like peanut butter.
10
If using fiberglass cloth, cut a segment which will completely cover your damaged area and apply the resin to both sides of the material until it is just barely saturated with the resin.
11
If you are using resin without glass reinforcement or fiberglass filler, apply the resin until the entire damaged area is filled and just slightly overflowing with resin.
12
If you are using woven roving, apply the material until it is covering the interior of the damaged area entirely. If there are holes in the damaged area, these must later be filled with resin or resin mixed with filler as necessary (see steps above.)
13
Note: If you have selected a hardening agent with a fast cure time, you may need to work quickly as you must properly apply the composite before it begins to harden.
14
Allow time for the repair to cure based on the recommendations from the resin manufacturer.
15
Caution: Curing composites are hot! DO NOT TOUCH curing composites.
16
Once cured, you will remove the tape and sand the damaged area. You may use course (40-60 grit) paper in order to obtain the general shape you desire. Once the general shape has been obtained, you will use a medium-grit (100-200 grit) paper to smooth the area followed by fine grit (300+) paper. You may use finer paper or polishing compounds until the desired finish is obtained.
17
Caution: Eye protection, skin protection, and a breathing apparatus are needed for sanding. Though cured epoxy may not smell noxious, particles created when sanding are still toxic.
Community Q&A
Question
Can I use fiberglass for waterproofing?
Community Answer
Yes you can, but don’t forget that the fiberglass layer has a certain thickness. It will make the item you are waterproofing a bit larger.
Question
Can I make a seat podium with fiberglass?
Community Answer
Yes, but it does not have properties suitable to local loading (screws, pitch points, corners), so it would be better to use metal. Stainless steel is most commonly used and likely just as cost effective.
Question
How do I repair hairline cracks in my fiberglass model racing boat?
Community Answer
Use epoxy and a sealer. The epoxy goes in the cracks, and will act as a sort of glue (as epoxy tends to do), and then you can sand it down to shape. The sanded epoxy should be fairly smooth, but when you add water repellent paint over the top, it will be invisible, and your boat will work better than ever.
Question
Can I put fiberglass in and reweld a whole area?
Community Answer
Yes. There is little you cannot repair, however you will likely need new structure, such as wood or foam core, to create a strong repair.
Question
I have a fiberglass water line with a fitting that goes into it. The fiberglass is cracked and the fitting leaks. What do I do?
Community Answer
Fibreglass is a poor material for fluid transfer due to its matrix structure. Depending on the application, I suggest installing a line made from material suitable for the situation, e.g. a rubber hose for cooling water, plastic hose for drinking water, PVC pipe for household waste water, or copper pipe for pressurized water.
Question
How do I prepare a wood hull before fiberglassing?
Community Answer
Simply ensure the wood is dry, structurally strong (rot-free) and bare. A wipe with methylated spirits before fibreglassing will ensure it is clean of oil and grime.
Tips
Don’t buy more resin and hardener than you need. These supplies do not keep well after you open them. Single repair packets can be bought at marine supply stores under the WEST brand. Hardware stores normally carry several resins and, possibly, filler and fiberglass cloth. BONDO is a cheap and widely carried polyester resin.
Warnings
DO NOT PEEL resin from your skin. DO USE a waterless hand cleaner to cleanse resin from your skin.
DO NOT TOUCH curing composites. Curing composites are hot!
Caution: Epoxy resin, polyester resin, and hardening agents are toxic chemicals.
You MUST WEAR proper skin protection, eye protection, and a breathing apparatus.
Things You’ll Need
Rubber gloves or appropriate skin protection
Safety glasses and a breathing apparatus rated for use with epoxy/polyester resins
Rubbing alcohol
Rags
Epoxy or polyester resin, whichever is appropriate
Hardening agent
A mixing cup and stirring utensil
Fiberglass filler or woven roving, if necessary
Tape
Note: Masking tape is best as it is easily applied and removed without residue.
Sandpaper – rough (40-80) grit, medium(100-200) grit, and fine (300+) grit are needed
Rubbing compound and polish to obtain the finest finish (optional)

How to Ride a Segway Safely

How to Ride a Segway Safely
Author Info
Updated: July 21, 2019 | References

Segway injuries are reportedly on the rise,[1] and with the Segway-caused death of James Heselden, owner of the Segway company,[2] it’s easy to be concerned about the safety of using Segways. The Segway company warns new users that “whenever you ride the Segway HT, you risk injury from loss of control, collisions, and falls” and that it’s your responsibility to reduce these risks.

When used correctly, Segways present a clean, safe, and enjoyable means for getting around, and keeping safe is really about using your common sense and keeping an eye out for potential hazards. Here are some suggestions on how to ride a Segway safely.

Steps

1
Learn how to operate the Segway before attempting to use it alone. Read the user manual thoroughly. It is strongly advised that you seek instruction from someone who is qualified and experienced in operating Segways.
Practice with people who know Segways before heading off on your own. At the very least, have a spotter when you first climb on and practice.
See How to operate a Segway for more details.

2
Wear appropriate clothing. At a minimum, wear a safety helmet. Other protective gear to consider wearing includes:
Knee and elbow padding, wrist guards.
Eye protection.
If you’re using the Segway at night (presuming it is legal to do so wherever you live), wear a high visibility jacket so that people can see you easily. If riding at night, always add lights so that you can see and be seen.
3
Keep a firm hold on the Segway at all times. Always have both feet firmly aboard, and both hands holding the handlebar. Don’t try carrying anything in one hand and maneuvering with only one hand. Use a backpack or a cargo holder if you need to carry stuff.
4
Avoid abrupt maneuvers when riding a Segway.[3] Although the Segway is able to sense your movement and aims to re-balance you, this mechanism may not be able to rectify your balance if you move too abruptly forward or backward.
Don’t turn a segway too fast. Fast turns can cause you to lose control; always lean into a turn and take it slowly.
Don’t stop or start a Segway too fast.
Don’t ride backward. This ability is meant only for maneuvering out of a tight spot or turning around, not for travel.
5
Avoid speeding. The Segway will warn you if you’re going too fast, using a “Speed Limiter”; it pushes the handlebar back as a way of slowing you down. Heed this and stop leaning forward.
Heed the Stick Shake Warning. This warning is set off when you ride too fast backward or you push the Segway beyond its limits, such as going over rough terrain, down a slope, or speeding up or slowing down too rapidly.[4] Slow down. If it doesn’t stop after slowing down, stop and get off as it could be telling you that your battery packs are low or that there are maintenance issues with the Segway.
Indoors, keep to a slow walking pace, stay in the center of corridors as much as possible, give way to every person, and don’t take the Segway where it’s not permitted.
Outdoors, aim to keep to a fast walking pace, again giving way to pedestrians and being very careful when going around corners.
6
Keep to solid, even ground. Segways are not designed for all-terrain moves. Stick with the paved surfaces they’re meant for.
Any abrupt terrain change can cause problems for your safety, such as riding from grass to pavement, speed bump, etc.[5] Do this slowly and with care.
Step off a Segway and use the power assist mode any time you are unsure of how to handle the terrain or area that you’re crossing.
Don’t ride on roads. Not only is the Segway not made to be a road vehicle, but it’s dangerous and may also be illegal. Cross roads with care, use power assist to walk it across if safer.
7
Maintain a safe distance between you and the handlebar. Leaning on the handlebar can reduce your ability to control the Segway properly.
8
Avoid pedestrians. You are moving faster than pedestrians and some pedestrians won’t even hear your approach. Always be on the alert for avoiding them, and be ready to call out if anything goes wrong before you can brake.
Generally, keep to the right of the sidewalk in countries with right side drive and keep to the left of the footpath in countries with left side drive, unless your pedestrian traffic norms are different. Heed all local rules about use of sidewalks.
9
Watch out for obstacles. If there are things in the way of your Segway, they have the potential to knock you off or create a collision. It’s up to you to see them, which can be difficult if you’re distracted by sightseeing or chatting. Common objects that cause problems include park benches, light poles, signposts, and trees.[6]
Avoid holes, curbs, and steps when using the Segway. A Segway can easily trip up on such obstacles.
Don’t take your Segway down a steep slope. Doing so will cause it to unbalance, and it’s very likely that you’ll be thrown out.
Don’t ride a Segway on any surface that is slippery, such as ice (including black ice, be aware!), snow, wet grass, oily or greasy areas, or wet floors.
Don’t ride over loose items such as branches, pebbles, rocks, broken glass, etc. These can cause the Segway to lose traction and tip you out.
10
Think ahead. As with riding a bike, scooter, or any other wheeled transportation that interacts with traffic and pedestrians, stay alert all of the time and react ahead of things happening.
Slow down (and stop if needed) at crossings, intersections, groups of people, driveways, around corners, doorways or other low-hanging areas, etc.
Get out of the way of cars, cyclists, and other traffic. Realize that often you can’t be seen or heard, or people may not equate a Segway with being something they need to stop for.
Avoid iPod oblivion or cell phone distractions. Don’t use MP3 players or cell phones while operating the Segway.
Don’t drink and ride.
11
Stop your Segway before getting off it. Don’t let go of a Segway that is still in balance mode or it will continue to travel away from you and could potentially collide with someone or something.
Community Q&A
Question
Do I need two hands to ride a Segway safely?
Community Answer
If it has a handle, yes.
Question
How do I avoid making it explode?
Community Answer
Don’t drive your Segway into fire, acid pools or drive while carry flaming propane tanks. Also don’t shoot it with a gun, run it over by a car, and finally, don’t throw it off an airplane.
Question
What can I do if there are no handlebars?
Community Answer
Just make sure that you are even more careful, and make sure you practice a lot at the park or a safe area. If you are a child who has a Segway without handle bars, make sure you are supervised by an adult or someone you know. Ideally, you should get one with handlebars, it’s safer.
Question
Should I give a Segway to my 10-year-old son?
Community Answer
That’s completely up to you. It should not be dangerous as long as it’s used with parental supervision.
Question
Are Segways as dangerous in terms of electrical safety as hoverboards?
Community Answer
Segways are more safe and secure. They even are used for professional jobs such as law-enforcement patrolling in malls and towns.
Question
Are Segways safe?
Community Answer
If you use it correctly and wear a helmet, Segways are generally safe.
Question
Are Segways easy for old people to ride?
Community Answer
Yes, assuming the individual is confident enough to stay upright. I wouldn’t suggest it for elderly people with existing mobility issues.
Question
What’s the easiest way to get on and off a Segway?
Community Answer
To get on the Segway, grab the handlebars and step onto it, one foot at a time. To get off the Segway, step backwards, one foot at a time, before releasing the handlebars.
Question
Do I have to have a driver license?
gαиgѕтєя
Community Answer
No, you do not need a driver’s license to ride a Segway, but you do need to be 16 or older to ride one.
Question
How long is the battery life? How far can I go on one charge?
Community Answer
The battery life depends on the make and model of the Segway, but you should be getting anywhere from 8-12 miles on a full charge.
Tips
Know your height. You become taller on a segway; keep this in mind when going under doorways, bridges, and other overhanging structures!
If using Segways for work purposes, ensure that all personnel are adequately trained in its use and safety.
Deal with faults immediately.
Segways have a minimum weight requirement which prevents children from riding them. Be sure to adhere to this.
Read the segway rider’s guide thoroughly before using the segway.
No wheelies or other stunts. A one-wheel only Segway is a Segway about to tip over and take you with it. If you’re keen about stunt riding, buy a bike.
Segways are not designed to carry more than one person; don’t give anyone else a ride on a Segway.
Warnings
Obey all local rules, ordinances, and regulations about where it is legal and not legal to ride Segways.
Don’t wear anything that could get caught up in the wheels, such as scarves or really long coats.
Don’t ride a Segway through revolving doors, on escalators or stairs, over gangplanks, on narrow ledges, or anywhere else unsafe.
Segway motors can cut out suddenly without warning. As a result of this, the rider can be catapulted over the front as the Segway drops down, landing the rider on the pavement and potentially suffering from injury.
The Segway company recommends that riders be over the age of 16.

How to Ride a “Hoverboard

How to Ride a “Hoverboard” (Two‐Wheeled Self‐Balancing Scooter)
Author Info
Updated: July 16, 2019 | References

So you have a two-wheeled self-balancing scooter – now you want to learn how to ride it. Its super easy to learn and even easier than learning to ride a full size Segway! Get started with step 1 and you’ll be smooth sailing in no time.

Part One of Two:
Stepping On

1
Read the instruction manual first if included. (Don’t worry if it doesn’t include one, many brands don’t).

2
Turn on the scooter.
The on button is normally a silver push kind, located on the back near the charge port.

3
Check it has full battery on the battery gauge. If it doesn’t, then charge it using the cable provided.

4
Position the scooter next to something you can hold on to.

5
Holding on to the object step one foot on.
There is often a light ‘next to the battery gauge, if it turns green then it is safe to put your second foot on, if it is red then turn off the board and try again. If the problem persists contact the supplier.
6
Carefully place your second foot on.
If the scooter moves its fine, just re-position and start again.
Keep going until you get it right.
7
Once you have achieved your balance, carefully point your toes forwards to go forwards.
Part Two of Two:
Learning to Maneuver
1
Once you can go forwards without help, start practicing turning.
2
To turn clockwise, put your right toes down only. You will turn.
It is very important to keep your other foot horizontal, if you don’t do this then it will counteract the turn and may unbalance you.
3
To turn anti-clockwise, put your left toes down.
4
To go backwards, lean back.
5
Handle slopes with care. Most mini self-balancing scooters can handle slopes of up to 15 degrees,  although it does vary with brands.
6
Watch your speed. When you achieve top speed you will normally hear a beep. This tells you that you have maxed out the speed and should slow down.
Now you can start to do spins and go at decent speeds!
Community Q&A
Question
Should I add lights in the front or back?
Peter Betts
Community Answer
It doesn’t matter which way. I ride with them at the front for personal protection, although putting them at the back could provide awareness for traffic. You could also add lights to both the front and the back.
Question
How do I increase my speed?
Community Answer
Lean forward! That will give you more speed as you ride.
Question
What do the different flashing lights mean?
Peter Betts
Community Answer
The lights normally go solid when pressure is applied to one side. If both sides of lights are solid, then pressure is on both sides. The lights flash when the battery is low, and very fast blinking could indicate that the board is not calibrated. The manufacturers may be able to provide detailed light sequence plans upon request.
Question
How long do we charge it?
Community Answer
It depends on the brand, but it is usually an hour and a half to 2 hours.
Question
Is it possible to ride with one foot?
SnoopWarden
Community Answer
No, it is not possible to ride with one foot. The board will not work. It will most likely vibrate and flip over, or crash. Don’t try it.
Question
Do I ride it with lights behind or frontward?
Community Answer
You ride it with the lights forward, but you can add lights at the back of the board for your own safety if you ride at night.
Tips
Take it slow and be patient. If you rush it then you may damage the scooter.
Don’t hesitate when first getting on. The longer you take to step on the more the scooter will wobble and move.
Consider having someone to hold on to and help you when you learn.
Consider buying some elbow and knee pads. This will help protect you whilst you are still learning.
When you want to go up onto bumps or pavements, try putting one wheel on first and then the other. This will dramatically improve your chances of succeeding.
When you go fast you may feel a wobble, slow down gently to avoid the wobble growing and you Falling off.
Try and be smooth, don’t do any sharp or sudden movements. Sharp movements will impact on your stability and speed.
Do not start to do stunts at the start, you need to be more experienced.
Some manufacturers have two modes. One is beginner and one is pro. Hold down the Manual on switch whilst on until you hear a beep to switch.
Warnings
These are heavy. If you fall off then it may hurt you or other people. Be careful of what you do and don’t try anything dangerous.
Be careful of the people around you, you don’t want to hurt them or get int their way.
Supervise charging and lithium-ion batteries, as they can potentially explode or leak.
Wear a helmet at the start for safety.
