    They Amuse Me

    Mission accomplished by the creators of them then, right? But seriously, I love amusement parks so much. They are so fun and make everything feel less serious, more childish, and (unfortunately) more expensive. But yeah. Also, roller coasters FTW.

    Well it's really called Carowinds, but around Halloween, they change the name. They do special things for Halloween and many people like to go around this time. The employees dress up in horrifying costumes, paired with great Halloween makeup, and go around terrifying the...

    Actually, The Boardwalk

    The boardwalk at the Jersey shore still excites me. I love the games, the rides, the people watching - you see all kinds! Funnel Cake, cheese steaks, Kohr's ice cream. I wish I was there now. Nothing better in the summer than days on the beach and nights on the boardwalk!

    Adrenaline Rush!

    It is so much fun to forget your cares for a day and spend the time laughing with giddy excitment or screaming with pretend fear.  And nothing can compare to the adrenaline rush of a great rollercoaster ride!

    Sure do. Any kind at all. Practically every September we're in Blackpool for the weekend before all the schools open up again. It's great as that's the weekend the blackpool illuminations are going off and it's great to stand on one of the piers ( as there's 3 of them) and watch...

    I Don't Know If This Already Exists......

     A Christmas themed Amusement park? I don't know of any amusement parks that are open this time of year..... but I'd love some kind of winter wonderland with an indoor rollercoaster and a Santa Parade twice a day! Haha, that's my silly idea for the day.

    I Find Ways To Have Fun

    I love reading others and seeing other groups and questions I have some sort of familiarity with. This one is definitely one of them. I love Splash Mountain and Space Mountain at Disney. I tried the Wild Cat Roller Coaster ride at the 50th State Fair in Hawaii before I moved to...

    Where Are They Now?

    It seems to me as if the amusement park generation has deceased. I haven't been to a park ever since I was little. I would love to go somewhere like...disney world, or universional studio. I will get there one day. My husband has never been to one. I would love to take him to...

    Of Old!

    I have not been in some years now and from what I have been informed, things have changed a lot! It's highly commercialized now, it was bad before but now it's ridiculous. Sigh.

    I Live Right Next To One^^

    I love the exitement of riding in rollercoasters and carousells. It's so much fun! Good thing I'm living right next to one of the biggest amusement parks in Norway =] I can go there pretty much anytime I want, and soon I'll be able to get a job there too.

    Six Flags. . .

    I know I haven't been to many, but I can't think of a better theme park. It was the origin of my love for fantastic rollercoasters. & the variety can't be beat. There are so many ways to flip your lid there. I haven't been in a while, but I'm very anxious to get back there.
