What are good ages for a single Mom to take her kids to a theme park alone?

My little ones are 2, 4, and 7 right now. We go to SeaWorld annually, but I am ready for theme parks.  When will my kids be ready? My 7 yr old is ready, skeptical about my 2 youngest. What is your opinion?

 

Oh yeah... I will be taking them alone.

I am wondering the same. I think I want to go to a theme park. My boys are 10 and 4. I know my 10 year old is ready. But it would be hard for me to be in two different places since my 4 year is so young.

Our son went to Disney at 4 last year. We also had our 4 month old. The 4 year old was the whiniest kid at Disney and I wouldn't have been able to handle him and the baby alone.

lol. my main thing is handling them alone with out restricting my 7 yr old!! last time we went to SeaWorld I brought my sister who has a son the same age as my daughter so she had them and I had my two little men (now ages 2 & 4). That way my 7 yr old wasn't deprived of fun!

At any age. While the older one is riding wait for him then go take the little ones. You just trade off

With only one adult things are not so easy. If i were still married hell yea me and my husband would take the kids to theme parks all the time. My toddlers have to be watched every minute!!

I took my 4yo to disney earlier this year....he was ready. I wouldn't suggest taking all 3 alone though.....the 2 and 4yo will need you to ride the rides with them and the 7yo will be mad he can't get away and have fun.

I don't know? Strollers! Go with a friend!
Even though I'm married as well as my friend we took the kids to the amusement park by ourselves. Kids whine or act up you know head of time how your kid will act! Go with that.
