:unclesam: So which is your favourite American theme park? Others include Hershey Park, Kennywood, Legoland, Kings Dominion, Wildwood, Dollywood and let us not forget SESAME PLACE!

To the regiment. I wish I was there.

Hey there Rick-T-C. Boy you don't take much persuading LOL!!! I voted for Universal Studios because that's one I actually went to, and I had a blast there.

Go Completely Wild!

I vote Magic Mountain in Newhall, Calif., which is an hour north of LA.

I choose Cedar Point because of their coaster collection, but I also like the Disney conglomeration of parks.
The Six Flags we have here in Illinois isn't too bad. I also visited the one near St. Louis and that one north of L.A. in the late 80's. It had a nice wooden coaster then, is it still there ?

I picked Cedar Point. I went there 2 times and liked they weren't as busy as Six Flags in Gurnee and their coasters were awesome. Plus, the Peanuts connection rocks too.

I didn't visit that amusement park inside that big-ass mall near Minneapolis until after camp Snoopy was disbanded. I had always imagined it to be really huge until I actually went there. They're still there with all the same rides, just no tie-in to the Peanuts gang.

Another couple of places I visited before they disappeared -
Old Chicago. I could see that place from my Uncle's backyard in Lemont Illinois. One of the earliest indoor parks, and some part of one of the "Omen" movies was filmed there.
Riverview. A Chicago area park going way back. Cool rollercoasters then, tho tame comparable to todays average ride.
Adventureland. A park in the woods somewhere near Addison Illinois that managed to get a ride or two from Riverview when it closed.
Santa's Village. That place was really getting run down, but it was sad to see it go.

Some of you will remember those places ! ???

I have a Cedar Point sweatshirt from my first trip there. Aren't they affiliated with the Peanuts gang anymore? I haven't been there for like 10 years, so it may have gone away when the Mall of America Camp Snoopy went away. My shirt is now priceless.

It's been almost ten years since my visit too. I can't remember if I saw Peanuts stuff or not. If I can find my photo prints, maybe I can see something ?

Yep, I remember 'em.
It was a big big deal when Riverview was closing down.

My favorite entertainment from the past includes the drive-in theaters we went to as kids .. and teens .. and parents. I'd still like to go to the one we have nearby just for the heck of it.

Hello, it's me again .....

I voted for Cedar Point because that's the last one I've been too, Disney I don't really consider an amusement park per say Disney is in a whole other ball park IMO, Disney World is the best but just for coasters I'll take Cedar Point.
