Regarding the earlier comment: "What is the dividing line between the two?" To me, and I don't think I'm alone here, a THEME PARK is a park that tries to take you to a different world, someplace completely different from what you're used to, using landscaping, props, architecture and costumes. An AMUSEMENT PARK is a giant playground filled with really cool rides. And just because that playground may have mascots running around, it still wouldn't be called a "theme park". I'm all for both of them, but I still think there's a difference.
(Maybe another way to say it would be: If you took all the rides out of a theme park and an amusement park, one would look like a movie set and the other would look like a parking lot.)
For the sake of this survey, I'm guessing Robert's question wasn't which is which, but just "what parks do you like better?"
