Mikey1969:

Magic Mountain is definitely cool... Liked it better than Knott's personally.

I really have to do Frightmares one year, it looks fun, but we've usually gone over budget on entertainment by that point.


Knott's has really improved since the 80s/early 90s. The fact that most people still blow it off means it's not usually insanely crowded and still kept tidy for the most part.

The haunted houses during Frightmares are usually pretty entertaining and people seem to generally be having more fun than in the summer for some reason. I've been fortunate to catch it on good weather nights though.

I really need to go... The commercials and the general scuttlebutt make it sound fun. I always have fun, even in the dead heat of summer, it's just a slower speed kind of fun. :-)

I have to concur with Cedar Point if its all about the rides.
If its about ambiance and theme, I like the Busch Garden's Parks very much.
Its its about the place you just want to go, have a great time with your whole family, and not pay a lot of money (free drinks, sunscreen, parking) then I go with Holiday World.  Doesn't seem like a bid deal but it really is, HW is also the cleanest park, if not public facility of any kind, that I've ever been.  Also smoke free...the whole park.  Like I said, if you have kids, its hard to beat.

I used to date a girl from Sandusky... When it was time to meet her parents, she drove over to the island that Cedar Point is on, and I asked if we were going to meet them at the park. She said no, and we pulled off a side drive off the parking lot, and then drove into the 'rich' area of Sandusky. Her parents live on the same island that Cedar Point is on. I didn't know at the time that her father is a multimillionaire. He literally owns over half of the hotels in Sandusky.

She was definitely daddy's little princess, and despite getting into CP for free so many times, I'm glad I'm out of that.. Too much money for me to feel comfortable.

I've actually been to 3 of them.  And Kennywood.  I don't know what I did to ever end up there, but we didn't have enough pot to make it fun.

I still remember when $12 was an outrageous price to go to an amusement park and every teenager was required to get a job at a supermarket, as a paper boy, or Astroworld.

Mike: Compared to old (pre-'95) Arrow stuff, anything from B&M is smooth  (well, maybe not that last turn on Raptor...)


Was going to mention Iron Wolf, but then you qualified with the old Arrows. Oy.

Oddly enough, B&M's tend to bash me up a fair bit. Only real exceptions I can recall are the flying coasters and a few of the sit-downs.

Close enough to this one to hear the whistle of that steam engine from my front yard.

ytterbium: Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun in Kansas City is fantastic. The rides are great, the park size is perfect, it's clean and the lines aren't bad even on peak days.

The water park is every bit as good.

I also like Michigan Adventure: it's not a big park but it's still fun, cheap and no crowds.


I'll second Michigan Adventure... we usually make the trip once a year. It includes a water park, has plenty of coasters (run by Cedar Point's parent corporation), and last year, we had the experience of sharing the park with some Mennonites, which was... odd. Not Amish Mafia odd, but close.
