Best Park in Each Chain


Recommended Posts

Simply put, what is the best park in each of the major chains? The best Disney park, Six Flags park, etc. Mine:

 

Disney: Disney California Adventure (although if I went to DisneySea I'd imagine that would be my favorite)

Universal: Universal Studios Florida

Six Flags: SFOG (although I think SFGAdv would take that spot pending a visit)

Cedar Fair: Cedar Point (obviously everyone will pick this, so....)

...non Cedar Point Cedar Fair: Knotts Berry Farm

Herschend: N/A

SeaWorld: Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Independent: N/A

Disney: Disneyland > DCA

 

Universal: For this thread, I'd say USF marginally > IOA. Generally, I rank them collectively as a complete package, unlike Disneyland and DCA which feel more "separate" and distinctly different from each other to me.

 

Six Flags: I am honestly not interested in even trying to rank them. (I have visited all except Six Flags Mexico.)

 

Cedar Fair: Cedar Point. It's easily in or just out of my top 5 parks, and I love the resort as a whole, haters be damned. As with SF, I don't care to rank the others. (I've visited all except Canada's Wonderland and Michigan's Adventure.)

 

Herschend: Flip a coin. I officially like SDC and Dollywood about the same.

 

SeaWorld: Busch Gardens Tampa

 

Parques Reunidos: Kennywood is the "best"; IdleWild is the most pleasant.

Wow, I just made this way less fun than I think it was supposed to be, haha.

From an unexperienced person:

-Busch/SW: BGW wins by default. Great park!

-CF: Knott's. CGA is a good park with decent rides and scenery, but KBF has several rides better than anything at CGA (Xcelerator and to a lesser extent, Silver Bullet) and the Ghost Town awesomeness.

-Disney: DL is still better than DCA...or is it?

-SF: Only been to the CA parks, and they both have the "classic" SF service and clientele. However, the rides and slightly more evident (albeit not by much) attempts at theming give SFMM the edge. I am stoked, however, at the prospect of trying out SFGAdv or SFNE next year

-Universal: Another win by default goes to USH. Frankly, I kind of went in with a jaded perspective and hence wasn't too impressed. Would enjoy another visit in the future, and both USO and USJ are on my bucket list.

-Independent: SCBB, possibly being another lone finisher. I need to get out more :/
