Disney parks are my favorite.

Next fav is probably Cedar Point, the roller coaster capital. I took son and one of his friends there when they were freshman in HS. There's plenty to do around the area and the roller coasters rock.

Cedar Point, it only one of two amusement parks I've been to, the other being Six Flags which has been closed for a few years now. It has some awesome rides, the best being the Millenium Force and Top Thrill Dragster. If you're ever near Sandusky, Ohio, you should definitely go.

I'd probably have to vote for Knott's Berry Farm, food is great! rides are great!

Some of the little shops here and there are pretty good too.

Cedar Point for the rides and then King's Island for Soak City.

@captainsuperdawg: This x100! Used to love going to Holiday World as a kid, and wish I could still go now! Gotta love those Pepsi Oasis shacks!

@miyoshinum5: Couldn't agree more, Cedar Point is the best amusement park for roller coasters I have ever been to. Have not been in over 10 years, but used to make it an annual tradition in high school and college.

I miss Astroworld. It wasn't the greatest place but we had some fun there. They closed it back in 2005.
Universal's Island of Adventure is the best I have been to. The Incredible Hulk ride is so awesome. Dr Doom's tower is fun, and it's been replaced by the Harry Potter ride, but the Dueling Dragons was a lot of fun. 2 different coasters with weight sensors that timed each coaster so they meet at certain points. 2 different rides on each color.

Haven't been to a theme park since. Really want to, but that will have to wait till next year after the GF has the baby so she can ride too.

I really enjoyed Universal's Islands of Adventure. They have a lot of really great themed areas that totally sell the movie vibe. I'm also a big fan of the movies represented in the park (Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, etc.). The rides are really good, too, especially the Jurassic Park River Adventure and Dragon Challenge (formerly Dueling Dragons, it was better in the old form, though).

Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Best amusement park hands-down. They have super-modern scare-the-crap-out-of-you coasters and vintage coasters and rides. The place is awesome. At the time, my favorite was the Mean Streak (a tall and wild wooden coaster built in the early 90s). I did not get to ride the Millennium Force before I stopped going up there.

Silver Dollar City. It's the closest to me at 3-1/2 hours away. It's also a really neat place with the old crafts being made as you watch like candle-making, glass-blowing etc. Some really good rides as well.
