Top Five Theme Parks

School is almost out. Summer is here. And theme parks all over the U.S. are making their grand openings, inviting you to a world of roller coasters, water slides and delicious elephant ears. There are so many of them but which one should you choose? If you choose to go to a theme park, you want the best bang for your buck. In an economy like this, if you’re going to spend the money, you want to enjoy yourself from the moment you step in, to the moment you leave for the day. Here are the top five theme parks!

1.) Walt Disney World

The happiest place on earth. Where dreams come true. The most magical place on earth. Which ever slogan you heard, they are all true. Disney World is a kids dream…on steroids! Little girls love Cinderella and little boys love Tarzan, but this park takes it to a whole new level. There plenty of rides and every character of the Disney family walking around the park greeting people and ready to take photo with you.  Time with your family and your children’s dreams coming true? It doesn’t get any better than that.

2.) Cedar Point

Cedar Point has been voted best park on the planet seven years in a row. And with good reason! They are called the roller coaster capital of the world. The Millenium Force has been called the greatest attraction at the park. Opened in 2000, it has broken 10 world records and still has the longest line in the park (if you ask me). There is a new ride at Cedar Point called the “Windseeker”. It is 30 feet off of the ground and you swing around. With Cedar Points legacy, you will not be disappointed.

3.) Wisconsin Dells

To be indoors or to not be indoors? That is the question. And you will contemplate every day because there is so much to do. Wisconsin Dells is a great place for everyone. There are roller coasters, there are water parks, there are water sports, there is hiking, and the list goes on and on and on! The special thing about the Wisconsin Dells is that there is something to do all year round. So toward the fall, most places start to shorten their hours, not the Dells! From scenic hikes along the river and screaming on a roller coaster to interactive game playing and museum oddities, you will never have a dull day.

4.) Six Flags

Now most people would beg to differ. “Six Flags is number four? What an outrage!” But it’s still in the top five. This is why. Six Flag has a different feel that Cedar Point. Six Flags is more family friendly. Everyone in the family can enjoy the ride. It’s not as intense as Cedar Point. What also sets them a part is the important details and it is more THEME based. Whereas Cedar Point is classified by it’s intensity level. Either way, they are both fine parks, clean, friendly staff, and you are going to have a great time.

5.) Schlitterbahn

Three areas. One theme park. Bundles of fun. Blastenhoff is the slides and beach base of the park. The second part is Surfenburg. Surfenburg is the surfing-based part of the park. Also, there is a kiddie park and a hot tub for the adults. Schlitterbahn West has it all! Tubing, swimming, sliding and thrill rides. There is something for everyone. It’s truly family oriented and you can be in there for days and never get bored.
