Nashville has no home park.


My real home park is the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. It was 15 mins. from where I used to live, and I would go at least once a month. We moved from California before I turned 11, so I lucked out with all of the local trips under my belt! Especially when you throw "Knott's Great America" into the equation. We went there a lot too.


I haven't been to any of the South's parks more than twice, so my home park could easily be Kings Island, Dollywood, Six Flags Over Georgia, or Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.


If I had to choose one, I would have to go with Dollywood, becuase my sister lives in Knoxville, and every summer brings potential for a day trip for Thunderhead!

Well, I'm originally from Norfolk, VA, which is about 30 min from BGE, so in my heart I'll always consider that my home park. However, right now I live in south Orlando so technically my closest park is Seaworld (15 min) with Disney and Universal both being about 20 min away and BGA about 1.5 hours away. Gotta love central FL...

Castles N Coasters, AZ- about 1 1/2 hours away

Cliff's Amusement Park, NM - about 7 1/2 hours away

Belmont Park, CA - about 6 1/2 hours away

Six Flags Magic Mountain - about 8 hours away

Six Flags Fiesta Texas - about 13 hours away


I think it's safe to say that I live out in the middle of the desert and who would build a park out in this extreme heat!

Hi, I'm in Dublin, Ireland so my local park is Funfasia a small amusement centre about 30mins away. It has just one coaster, and the only one in Ireland I think.


But my nearest main park would probably be Rhyl Ocean Beach in Wales, a ferry trip and train away. (4-5 hours)

I'd have to say the closest ones to me are SFGAdv and Dorney Park.


However after spending 20 years in Orlando before making my escape I claim my home parks as the Florida one's since I spent the better part of my young haunting them before I worked for them
