In your opinion, which park has the best setting/location? You can base your judgement on uniqueness (ie. Cedar Point) or even which park best utilizes its surroundings (ie. Kennywood). Please share your thoughts and photos.

I personally feel like you left out the best at BGW but from the ones you gave us I picked SFFT. It is so unique and amazing especially when the water is falling from the rock face. Six Flags should be ashamed of themselves that they haven't made that park better with a new coaster or thrill ride. SFFT is just beautiful.

While I love the View at Cedar Point and they defintely win in the states IMO.

 

But I just cannot argue with this view at Ocean park

 

(and I too believed BGW deserved a spot up there maybe the mods can add it.....Elissa?)

Cedar Point isn't really all that unique IMO.

 

The view from the causeway is great. However once you're in the park it's pretty much just flat land with coasters. No elevatin changes, very little trees with the exception of the frontier area,etc. Though there's nothing boring about the rides, the layout of the park is boring.

I think you've missed the point. Cedar Point is unique because it's surrounded by water and located on a peninsula. If you don't think that's unique, I'd like to see you name another park that has those features. Also, appearance and ride collections shouldn't matter because we're simply focusing on the park's interesting location.

Of the list Cedar Point but is it the best?

 

Fuji Q has the best setting for sure next to Mt Fuji!

 

Otherwise

Yomiuriland Amazing valley and Tokyo

LaQua - Tokyo

CosmoWorld - Yokohama Harbour

Sea Paradise - this is an island rather than Pennisula.

 

Sea World Gold Coast has an incredible location

 

oh and that park on the mountain behind Barcelona or the one next to Niagara Falls

To echo:

Alton Towers

Busch Gardens: The Olde Euroburg

 

Ocean Park has the most impressive setting from the list IMO. (The sky ride has great views, too, but the park itself is a wee bit run down.)

 

Yomiuriland is the nicest setting in Japan, so far, but not the most beautiful park.

 

^Philcoaster, while Fuji-Q has a nice backdrop, the neighborhood it's in is pretty shabby, especially for Japan. I drive through it when getting out back for my construction updates.

 

Now, GrinPa, on the other hand, is right on Fuji-san itself! THAT'S impressive, if a little weird and ominous.

universal studios HOLLYWOOD is in a pretty good location.

 

If you don't mind having the worst park layout in history.

 

 

Hong Kong Disneyland looks nice.

I think Tibidabo has the best location...on top of a mountain in Barcelona, overlooking the Mediterranean! But for this poll, I voted for Cedar Point, with Kennywood being a close second!

I can't see Cedar Point on this list! There are so few places where you can actually tell you are along the water. Plus they have ripped out far too many trees. The old west village used to be my favorite part of that park but they ripped out so many trees to put in Millenium Force. Plus its interesting that that park is the 2nd or 3rd oldest in the country and they have nothing to show for it!

Of what is up there, i would have to go with SFFT. However, I think SFSTL is the best out of all parks since it is similar to two of the locations on the list, plus it is very well landscaped. Just like Kennywood and Dollywood, the terrain of SFSTL is very hilly, and the ravines provide several good drops on the Boss wooden coaster.

I like SFMM's setting. The tree covered hills are very nice!

 

But from this list I'd go with SFFT. Never been there yet, but I think the idea of a park in a rock quarry is very unique.
