Roller coaster heaven in Williamsburg, Virginia
Are you the type of person who considers roller coasters the heart of a theme park, or do you think them a mark of a lesser "amusement" park, one that lacks the highly-themed, compelling narrative attractions you love?
Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. Highly themed, hugely popular, and most definitely not a roller coaster.
How essential is having a roller coaster to ride to your enjoyment of a theme park? That's my question for you this week. Is it essential, or a turn-off? Is it a nice addition - just another type of ride? Or do you not care one way or the other?
In your dream park, would you have roller coasters? If so, what do they look like? If not, what takes their place? Tell your thoughts in the comments, please!
