    Said to have the most rollercoasters of any park in America, Cedar Point is pricey but definitely worth it. A roller coaster fan's heaven.

    Carowinds has a little something for everyone. Having just undergone renovation, the park looks better than ever and the rides are as good as always.

    Great coasters plus animals, rides, and shows for the more timid park visitors, there's a lot to do if you're willing to fight the crowds.

    Kings Dominion, Doswell, Virginia

    Huge park with good rides and a lot of entertainment.

  • 5. Hershey Park

    Roller coasters and candy makes for a dangerous combination. A pretty good mix of rides and other attractions to keep everyone entertained.

  • 6. Morey's Piers

    Some very good coasters and a nice selcetion of thrill rides make this a great park to visit.

  • 7. Kennywood Park
    Kennywood Park, West Mifflin, Pennsylvania

    A small, "blast from the past" park, there's enough at Kennywood to satisfy the thrill seeker.

  • 8. Astroland Amusement Park
    Astroland Amusement Park, Brooklyn, New York

    Home to the famous Cyclone, there's enough nostalgia here to have a good time.

  • 9. Clementon Amusement Park

    Nice, clean family park that not too much on the thrill rides as the more casual ones, but still fun.

  • 10. Walt Disney World

    The classic that is perfect for those families that have children spread across a wide range of ages, Walt Disney World really has it all. Four parks, 2 water parks, tons of resorts, and golf courses, it's almost impossible to be bored.
