Parks people NEED to go to

Postby RoxasBraveheart » Wed Apr 24, 2019 9:31 am

Well, I realized I don't actually go to theme parks very often. Of course, there might be some monetary reasons, but I've decided for my incredibly belated New Year's resolution to go to more parks. So please help me! My only requirement is that it's in America, because I can't afford that high of airplane fare.
Keep on thrilling, TPR! :)

What kind of things do you like?

Do you want heavily themed parks with dark rides? Do you want extreme coasters? Do you want a more relaxing park? Do you like shows? Do you like animal experiences? Do you like slammin' perogies? Are you traveling with kids?

I feel like we need more information to really help you out. There are tons of parks out there and they're all very different and they appeal to different tastes.

Dollywood
King's Island (for the Beast)
Six Flags Magic Mountain

and very good, and well worth the trip:

Busch Gardens Tampa
Disney Parks (of course)
Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags Over Georgia
King's Dominion

I hereby hijack this thread in the name of Knoebels. Bill, will you second that?

Use the app 'Hopper' to help get track flights for cheaper airfare. The combo of Knoebels and Hershey is a great mix that shouldn't be missed. Kings Dominion + Busch Gardens is as well.

Also, realize to save on your ticket costs, you can get season passes that work at multiple parks in the same chain. If you're planning on visiting a lot of parks, you might decide to visit a lot by the same company, making the pass worth it.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Knoebel's. That place is purely magical without the artifice you find in other theme/amusement parks.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I second this list, but I must add Kentucky Kingdom and Holiday World. And as for my views on CEDAR POINT I consider this park the Mecca of amusement parks. You haven't lived unless you spent at least a day of your riding life inside "American's Roller Coast". Can I get a "Amen" for that?

:pillow: "Amen! Now please come back to bed. I miss you terribly."

Return to Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys!
