Theme Park Insider's Google Map of all top U.S. theme parks
Ever wish you could have a Google Map of all the top U.S. theme parks?
I've put together a Google Map of the U.S. theme parks covered on Theme Park Insider, with links back to the TPI ratings and reviews pages for each park. The map should be quite handy to get custom driving directions to the parks.
The parks are listed in the left column in more-or-less west-to-east order. Or you can use the map interface to zero in on parks in your area.
Hope this helps!
Late add: Of course, the really cool part of this is that if you select the "Satellite" option you can see aerial views of all the parks!
That's awesome! Thank you!
Thats really great!
Just a little curious as to why Darien Lake and Canada's Wonderland aren't on there seeing as how they are the large parks for western NY/Canada.
Cause I spaced them? ;-) I'll put 'em on when I get back to my home computer this afternoon.
It is also intersting that it appears that a majority of the theme parks in the US are in areas of the North that do not stay warm all year long.
It's funny to see the difference between the amount of parks in the East compared to the West. I'm actually a bit surprised there's no major parks in the Arizona - New Mexico area since that area has been experiencing a lot of growth in recent years.
Ultimately, I think park locations come down to summer weather. This remains a family business (see Vegas' failures with theme park attractions over the past decade and a half), and parks make almost all their money during school vacations.
In terms of weather, it's also interesting that so many parks are located in areas where they can only be open half of the year.
Since that half of the year contains the time that the kids are out of school in the U.S., it works for them.
You are a wonderful human! Thank you so much!
We're driving to California for an 11-14 day vacation this Summer and I used the maps to print out all of our directions. Thanks a bunch.
I really like this map. It's going to be really useful when on road trips around the US. I posted the map on ongopongo.com
The map is great. Can you make it available as a link on the blog page?
I didn't even know there was a satilite feature!
