  • [Question] Glasses straps for rides

    I know there are others on here who wear glasses. Have any of you ever used a head strap to keep them on during faster rides? I was looking at Croakies and Chums straps and wondered if anyone had used those before. Are they any good or even worth buying?

    I've never worn any kind of glasses strap. However, I've worn glasses on EVERY ride currently at Disneyland, and have never had a problem with them coming off.

        If you have issues with your glasses falling off, you might want to check the hinges on your frames or see if you can get another pair that fits more snugly. The only ride I'd worry about my glasses is Indiana Jones because of the quick jerking.

          I've never had any problems with my glasses on any ride. Granted, I don't ride things like Screamin' but I've never had an issue on anything else. Caps and hats sure, but glasses, no. If you feel safer using a Croakie then there is no harm is doing so but I don't they they are mandatory.

            My second time on the Matterhorn as a kid, the bobsled hit a drop and at the same instant got whapped by a strong gust of Santa Ana wind -- and my glasses flew off. The rest of that day in Disneyland was a miserable, nearsighted blur.

            After that day, I never visited Disneyland without a spare pair of glasses.

              I've never felt the need for a strap on any of the rides at Disneyland. A pair of properly fitted prescription glasses should not budge from your face on DLR's thrill rides, which are relatively tame.

                Been on most Disney roller coasters, and never had to use straps on my glasses. Even on California Screamin'
                The new Star Wars plot summery:

                Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

                Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

                Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

                  I use Croakies and they work great. You can also buy a Croakie type at the Emporium on main street that has "Disneyland" on it. Cheap insurance.

                    I wear Ray Ban Wayfarers and have never had a problem. You should be good!

                      I wear my sunglasses on every (outdoor) ride, and they fit a little loose, but they've never come off. I usually wear my contacts to the park, but always carry my glasses with me in case a contact falls out or gets torn. If I were to wear my glasses, I would almost certainly wear a strap because I would be part of the lucky group that Mr Wiggins is in to have a freak gust of wind blow them off my face!

                        My son has worn glasses from the age of 3 (adorably, IMO lol) and we brought along a hard plastic glasses case to put the glasses in on thrill rides. We just put it in a backpack or that mesh bag they have now on some of the coasters. It helped him relax and enjoy the ride. :-) So you could always do that. Depends on how blind you are, I guess! :-)

                          I have always worn my glasses on rides and have never had a problem, but I figured I would carry a strap with me this time around just for some insurance. I always bring a spare pair of glasses with me when I travel, too. I have been in glasses since I was 4 and am a -10.25 in both eyes, so I would definitely be blind without them.

                          Thanks for the input, guys! I think I'll pick up a pair of Croakies

                            Like most everyone that's answered, I've never lost a pair on a rough ride. As for buying a little "insurance", I would'nt see it as a waste.

                              I did buy some croakies in January for our trip to Universal Orlando IOA. My glasses have always been kind of loose and never fit quite right, but I love the frames. Anyway, I didn't need them, and I've never needed them for any rides at Disneyland either. You should be absolutely fine.
