Tomorrow is Super Bowl Fifty-something, where some team will play against some other team in the last football game of the season. Fans will be riveted as some guy passes while some other guy leads the comeback charge, all while watching some halftime show where we'll all be watching for a repeat of the infamous Wardrobe Malfunction. In between plays we'll watch overpriced commercial ads produced with more quality and bigger budgets than some schlock sent to movie theatres, while eating 12 tons of nachos and drinking beer till we need a stomach pump.
For the rest of us who may be looking for something to do, it is with personal experience that I say Super Bowl Sunday is one of the absolute best days to hit up your Southern California Adventure Parks. The weekend occurrence allows for most entertainment to run as normal, but with highly-reduced crowds, greatly shortening wait times and the push-and-shove factor found in some of the busier theme parks.
