While I am not a fan of amusement parks or rides, one of these days I’m going to have to cave and take Lucas to Disney. Or do I…
Mashable came up with a list of 12 Amusement Park Alternatives To Disney.
Here is the list of parks:
- Cedar Point- Sandusky, OH: 2nd oldest amusement park in the country, considered to be the rollercoaster capital of the world.
- Hershey Park- Hershey PA: A family friendly park (with a Hersheys theme) featuring 12 rollercoasters, over 65 rides including over 20 for kids.
- Knott’s Berry Farm- Buena Park, CA: Affordable rides which has something for all ages.
- Legoland- Various Locations: Lego sculptures decorate the parks, the parks are mostly for the 12 and under crowd but there are also some rides fit for adults.
- King’s Island- Mason, OH: One of the most visited parks in the US, known for its roller coasters as well as the rides for kids.
- Schlitterbahn- New Braunfels, TX: Water park with big slides, it also has locations across Texas and Kansas.
- Universal Studios- Orlando, FL: Has many themed areas including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
- Knoebels- Elysburg, PA: No parking or admission fees, you pay for each ride, some as low as $0.75. Walking around the park is like being transported to another time — with plenty of thrill rides and fun activities.
- Busch Gardens- Williamsburg, VA: Lots of rides for the whole family, there are also wildlife safaris at all locations.

If I could choose a couple of parks to visit from this list I’d definitely check out Universal Studios since I’d like to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’d also like to visit a Legoland since I am always amazed by the impressive sculptures made from the famous blocks.
