When I went to Yellowstone for the first time, I felt unprotected; it was like being stripped away from all the protection I always felt at the theme parks. The cute bears at Magic Kingdom will eat you at Yellowstone and other national parks. Anything with water at the theme parks will -at its worst- get you wet, but water kill tourists at the other parks.
Most people who get hurt at National Parks do so for not following rules. Yet, one still needs to think through every decision -wading at rivers or getting close to wildlife- unlike theme parks where one functions in automatic.Tweet
