But as far as cp being the best amusement park in the world I would definitely disagree. I will agree they have some good and great coasters but not that great to stand in line for 2 hours for, plus their food is way overpriced. The park used to have character and charm now its just sterile, concrete and noisy. As far as there being one amusement park that's best in the world, I don't believe there is one. They all have different styles. Until someone has been to every amusement park in the world to compare each and everyone they cannot claim that any park is the best.

Â I can only count about four coasters out of seventeen that would I consider great (Maverick, MF, Magnum, and Raptor) even though one of the four I can't fit on anymore.There are way too many great parks and rides out there not to miss regardless if they only have a small number of coasters and rides.Hersheypark has a triple threat with two excellent wood coasters and a superior hydraulic launch. I'm sure Fahrenheit will be equally as delicious.Knoebel's may only have two wood coasters but they are awesome just the same. You want good air time - check out Phoenix. Twister is a lateral lover's dream.SFGAm has an equally impressive collection of thrillers for everyone.BGE is the epitome of what I like in a park and they only have five coasters.Because I have several parks that I rate much more highly than CP I guess I should be expecting some backlash.

It is adjacent to the minor league Altoona Curve baseball stadium, a great place to catch a game. Some nice cla**ic rides and a waterpark area. It is also home of the Skyliner, a wood roller coaster relocated in 1987 from Roseland Park in Canandaigua, New York. All Day Ride & Slide Pa** $9.95 Evening Pa** (After 5pm, Wed-Sat) (After 3pm, Sun) $7.95 Individual Tickets (Rides Require 2-3 Tickets) $1.00 Delgrosso's Amusement Park (Tipton, PA) 214 miles http://www.delgrossos.com/dap.htmlLike nearby Lakemont, a smaller traditional park with some great cla**ic flats. (It used to be known as Bland's Amusement Park). There is a Crazy Mouse coaster and also a kiddie coaster, the Revolution (Arrow Loop & Corkscrew coaster) from the closed Libertyland park is onsite waiting for future reconstruction.The owners are famous for their DelGrosso's spaghetti sauce, so the food is pretty good. All days rides $12.95, Rides/Waterpark & Rapids is $15.95.Columbus Zoo 141 mileshttp://www.colszoo.org/ In addition to the animals in the zoo, it has the "Sea Dragon" Wyandot Lake coaster, some flats and the new Zoombezi Bay waterpark. ?The reopening is this year, so there should be a lot of buzz in the media. ?(Anyone know what flats they kept from Wyandot Lake?)
