Top Ten Best Theme Parks

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Universal's Islands of Adventure

This isn't the best theme park in the world. It may not have the most insane coasters or thrill rides, but everybody can enjoy islands of adventure. They have the Incredible Hulk, dragon challenge, and the little Harry Potter coaster that's nice for the little ones. Like I said, these aren't the best coasters, but the way they interact with the "island" is just incredible. This park also has the best simulators and water rides ever created. Rip saw falls is THE best log flume, and Jurassic park river adventure is beautiful! This park also has the Spider-Man and Harry Potter simulators that will be one of the best experiences you've ever had. Not to mention, the food in universal's city walk is OUTSTANDING. This park just sends such a different vibe than all of the Disney/six flags/cedar fair parks, therefore it is my favorite theme park - coasterwatch01

Whats going on here? Why isn't this in the top 3? This is the best Universal park in the world! With Harry Potter, Marvel, Kong, and other excellent, immersive lands, groundbreaking thrills, and the award winning Mythos restaurant. They have set a new standard for theme parks. Universal Express allows you to skip the lines without any limits. They have unique attractions with amazing theming such as The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, and Skull Island: Reign of Kong. They have two great roller coasters Incredible Hulk, and Dueling Dragons. Three of the best water rides Popeye and Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges, Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls, and Jurassic Park River Adventure live at this park. It has Seuss Landing so children can enjoy the park too. Without a doubt the best theme park in the U.S. so get out to Islands Of Adventure now.

They are currently doing a stage show based on Pitch Perfect 2. - playstationfan66

Why isn't this higher? How can you top this? It has Marvel Superheros, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, King Kong, Dr. Seuss. It amazes me how immersed you are in each land with world class rides such as Incredible Hulk, Dueling Dragons, and the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman.

22 Kings Island

Number 28?!? It should be higher. It has the longest wooden roller coaster in the world, and is owned by cedar point. It had the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster too, and it was the only wooden roller coaster with a loop. Plus, it has one of the new rides called windseeker that many parks have.

Number 28 is way to high, lets take back knots berry farm and Canada's wonderland for kings island

It really should be higher because they have one of the best rides on EARTH! I am just furious.

A great park out in the midwest

23 Alton Towers
24 Sea World, Orlando


This. park Gets A lot Of Hate For the stupidest Reasons

Don't PUT THIS ON HERE! They abuse animals and put them under too much stress and kill them.
They killed Shamu's mother, took cows away from their mothers, and STONE BABY EMPEROR PENGUINS!
This prison disguised as a "THEME PARK" should be CLOSED!

25 Holiday World, Indiana

Its really kind of a hidden gem here in Indiana. Its in the middle of nowhere but an absolute blast. Every thing from the friendly staff, to the extreme safety, having both of the worlds longest water coasters and the number 1 wooden coaster in the world. (I believe the other two have also held that title. Its always expanding and the free drinks are stellar. If you want to visit please note that there is a candy shop nearby that sells discounted tickets.

Holiday World has several of the best roller coasters in the world. Also the Tallest coaster, the longest water coaster, and has won friendliest and cleanest park several times. Not to mention the unlimited free drinks. It cannot be beat. - davidthenurse

It has the world's No.1 roller coaster! - Godisawesome1

27 Lagoon, Utah

Yes, it's worth it to drive across the country even, if for only riding Dracula's Castle ride. The immense thrill ride will immerse you in the depth's of and old, dark castle, with screams and characters around every corner. It is sure to be hit the whole family will love.

34 Carowinds

While I love Disney World, I have to say that Carowinds is good too. Carowinds has less wait times, more coasters, and nowhere near as many people. Carowinds is good. Nighthawk and The Intimidator are amazing. I can't wait for the new ride to be up and running. It's going to be exciting.

I have been to Carowinds several times and really enjoyed it! The roller coasters there are so fun and they also have stuff for smaller kids. I always look forward to going there - littlestpetpet41813

This should make the top 10! This park is amazing! I had an amazing experience! Please vote this park!

Fury 325 is the best roller coaster in the world this park should be higher up in the rankings - JBARB

35 Efteling

Voted as the best theme park in the world.
Not as plastic as Disney.
Walk through the fairytale forest and be enchanted...

36 DollyWood

Just the cinnamon bread there and it eats up most of the parks on this list.

Some of the best theming and rides ever

The best place ever

With thrilling rollercoasters, country music, southern cooking, and the friendliest staff ever. How can you not love Dollywood?

37 Busch Gardens, Williamsburg

Voted most beautiful park for twenty-one straight years... amazing roller coasters... incredible food... ingenius setup... world class shops. Can't be beat! - everton96

The most beautiful park, and one of the best in the country. It is so much better than going to a theme park that's just gross looking.

I just went there it should be top 5 easily


38 Tokyo DisneySea

I love the water theme & all of the parks theme and awesome water show at night, it's great not only for kids but for couples too, I thought that Disney's design for kids but the Tokyo Disney Sea is great for lovers too.

This theme park is really amazing. It's so unique and very world class.

28? You have got to be kidding me here. TDS beats both Cedar Point and Magic Mountain into the water.

39 Enchanted Kingdom
40 Kennywood

Phantom's Revenge, Thunderbolt and Sky Rocket are the best!

Kennywood is being disrespected at 36

Keep kennywood in the top 30

Brought it up from #37 to #33
