Top 10 Cedar Fair Amusement Parks

The Top Ten

1 Cedar Point

I like steel vengeance but the top thrill dragster is always down and fast lane plus is too expensive but we still get it.

They already have a lot of coasters! Cedar Point is considered Cedar Fair's flagship park because it's where it's based out of

You can't even compare any park in the world to this, Its beautiful.

Hands down the best Cedar Fair park. It honestly earned it's name, Coaster Capital! You can't ask for much more, a beautiful park sitting on a Lake Erie Peninsula, packed full of awesome roller coasters and other thrilling rides!

2 Kings Island

Best park overall. New Orion coming plus Waterpark is huge and included in admission. Great value and this park will be number 1 eventually because only half the land owned is being used so yes tons of growth potential in the future! It will become the top park one day over Cedar Point and Canada's Wonderland. The attendance ranking now is Knotts 6 million a year, Canada's Wonderland 3.8 mil, Cedar Point 3.6 mil, Kings Island 3.5 mil, Carowinds 3 mil, Kings Dominion 2 mil, California's Great America 1.5 mil, Worlds of fun 1.2 mil, Dorney Park 1 mil, Valley fair and Michigan's Adventure less than 1 mil. Gilroy Gardens half mil. Most of all Cedar Fair parks are landlocked meaning their growth is very limited. Kings Island and Kings Dominion has the biggest areas to grow in the future. Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Point, Carowinds, Knotts Berry Farm and Valley fair uses 100 % of the land they have. No room for growth. The remaining parks don't have much land left for growth either. I ...more

The park is always so nice and clean. I love the rides as well. There is truly something here for the whole family

Best park layout and plenty of land for the future! Might not have the tallest coasters but it definitely packs a punch with variety!

Diamondback and Banshee are great rides and it seems there will be a new giga coaster soon

3 Canada's Wonderland

amazing roller coasters and flat rides and we have the biggest, fastest, and longest dive coaster

Clean and safe, lots of food choices and the rides are awesome

Litty and underrated when cedar point has no high roller coasters so suck it

This park is the most visited seasonal park in North America for a reason... it should be in the top 3 or top 5 at the least... Amazing attractions (best flat ride collection of any park in the world - in my opinion) and great solid coasters! As well as the 2 dark rides we have which are both amazing!

4 Carowinds

Carowinds is my favorite park visited many times through the years

This park has a great coaster lineup and FURY AND INTIMIDATOR SHOULD HELP PUSH PAST KINGS ISLAND!

I've only been to two cedar fair parks which were kings island and carowinds and to be honest I like carowinds better because the atmosphere and FURY 325.

Drove 1050 miles to ride. We were not allowed to wait for the front row. They picked where you sat. not cool

5 Kings Dominion

6 Knotts Berry Farm

Knotts has something unique about it that differs from all the cedar fair parks and should be appreciated more! I just wish cedar fair invested more money into this park

This is the only park in cedar fair I have been to, and all the rides ( except for pony express, which is crappy) are awesome

One of the most underrated small parks in the states. Fantastic park.

How is this not near the top of the list

7 California's Great America

Best coaster gold striker - kegan

Gold Striker... need I say more?

Best coaster Flight deck

I like it the most

8 Worlds of Fun

I love Worlds Of Fun I go their every weekend their actors are amazing and their show and rollercoaster are great

No I don't think worlds of fun is the best park overall, but definitely has the most charm. I go quite a bit and It is very underrated and has lots of potential and a great top 5 coasters so no not the best cedar fair park but crazy underrated and in my opinion one of the supreme cedar fair parks

Best themed and most potential

Patriot is the best, along with Mamba and Prowler. Timber wolf is underrated, Spinning Dragons is meh, and Boomerang is okay

9 Dorney Park

I Think Dorney Park Should Be Top 5, Two Parks For The Price Of One. I Could Spend All Day In The Water park And The Rest Of The Day In The Regular Park For One Price

I get platinum passes every year and have been to the top eight listed and I don't know how Canadas wonderland ranks#2 or how carowinds Michigans adventure and knots ranks above dorney it should be number four on this list those four other parks are lame in comparison if you ask me. Cedar point, kings island and dominion and dorney are my top four

Best Coaster steel force

I was there today

10 ValleyFair

Renegade is the best followed by Steel Venom... I wish they could have more coasters

Oh Yeah I love Valley Fair! - lionsforlife

Best coaster Wild thang

Steel Venom is the best!

The Contenders

11 Michigan's Adventure

Best coaster shivering timbers

Beautiful lake

7. Big Dipper
6. Zach Zoomer
5. Mad Mouse
4. Corkscrew
3. Wolverine Wildcat
2. Thunderhawk
1. Shivering Timbers
My ranking of the rollercoasters here

12 Thank Dick Kinzel

Thank Dick Kinzel is my favorite park, I love their wooden coaster, What Once Was Big Dipper, their flying coaster, What Once Was Firehawk is also cool... there are only 5 coasters, which the three I didn't mention are What Once Was Vortex, What Once Was Disaster Transport and What Once Was Double Loop - Maddox121

13 Gilroy Gardens

Best coaster quicksilver express

14 Geauga Lake

It's so sad that it's no longer around
