During a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Avengers: Endgame star and celeb dad Chris Hemsworth revealed a completely clever amusement park hack. So if you’re planning a Spring break or summer-time trip, check out Hemsworth’s laugh-worthy idea.
When Hemsworth and now-six-year-old daughter India wanted to go on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disneyland, the pair were turned away. Instead of giving up, and disappointing his daughter, Hemsworth MacGyver-ed a solution.
Obviously his daughter couldn’t grow magically in minutes. Without another option, the celeb dad stuffed Snickers bars (yes, the chocolate candy bar) into the backs of his kiddos shoes. And boom, just like that India was tall enough to ride the ride.
Hemsworth told Kimmel, “We’re at the top, and she’s strapped in, and the seat is massive on her. I’m like, ‘We beat the system, honey!'” But the story didn’t end there. As Hemsworth basked in the glow of his chocolate-covered hack, he realized the mistake he made (and the serious safety reason for amusement park height restrictions). The deep drop down sent the little girl up and out of her seat, forcing Hemsworth to hold onto her for the entire ride.
While Hemsworth’s hack was certainly entertaining, when it comes to your kiddo’s safety take the actor’s story as a cautionary tale.
