BGE becuase the themeing,atmosphere and coasters. BGE shows that quality over quanity always works when it comes to coasters.

Another vote for BGE here! Not only is it my favorite theme park because of accessibility (I live so close), but I think it has a lot to offer as far as variety of entertainment.

As Justin mentioned before, quality beats quantity when it comes to coasters, something that Cedar Point needs to learn.

As for my favorite, I'm going with BGE because of the atmosphere, theme, coasters, and even food. It is just an overall outstanding park.

EPCOT

I'd probably say Universal Studios Fl for the themeing and the atmosphere. It's the sort of park you could wonder around and not actually have to go on any attractions, although that would just be stupid!

Cedar Point duh! There is no other choice!!! LOL at these slow folks that chose BGE, one of the most boring parks in the country. CP gets the golden ticket for a reason. This site is a joke!!!

When I want to ride coasters I go to Darien Lake.
Really nice mix of coasters.
For total theme, Disneyland.

As an aside, Golden Tickets are a weighted poll.
They select who gets the poll, and then "weight" it by region.
Meaning they can get any result that they want.

1) IOA
2) Universal
3) King's Island

Yea lets say BGE for sleeping or whatever lol for sleeping lmao!!! BGE is the most boring park in the world and it will remain that way. That park has no coasters above 200 ft and no coasters that are aggressive. Kings Dominion down the road has a special coaster called Dominator that blows it away!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Jerk Rivers – if you do not like this site, Don’t return…Life is all about choices.
Many of us come here to enjoy information about theme parks, not just extreme parks…

In your little pea brain, after you grow some fuzz on your peaches, you will appreciate this site and Roberts efforts….

Most people go to areas where there are many parks, therefore Orlando and Cali will get many votes….

Just because you have an opinion - it doesn’t make you correct…..

Its hard for me to not pick any of the WDW parks, because all together they make that a totally wonderful vacation experience.

But as a stand-alone park BGE takes the prize for me too. When we planned our trip there we were scared that it would be like BGA, which we did not enjoy as much. It so exceeded our expectations. Definitely look forward to doing it again sometime (of course on our way to WDW). ;-)

^ Jake your a joke.

From Greg Bark
Posted June 5, 2008 at 1:28 PM
Jake, I said it once, and I'll say it again: log off this website. I don't think your brain's section of theme park interest can comprehend the pleasure and diversity of a true theme park, which Cedar Point is not. Simply put: LEAVE THIS WEBSITE AND TAKE YOUR FRIENDS AND IRON RIDES WITH YOU!

I like Busch Gardens Africa. The mix of quality coasters, lush landscaping, and the African themed shows and animals makes for a very good cohesively themed Busch experience.

BGE, of course (since I'm always talking about it).

I think I'm going to have to go for Disney's Hollywood Studios.

ISLANDS OF ADVENTURE!

THIS THEME PARK GOES ABOVE AND BEYONG IN THERE THEMEING. ITS THE PARK THAT GAVE US AMAZING ADVENTURES OF SPIDERMAN, HULK , DUELING DRAGONS AND MORE .THEY HAVE THE WORLDS NUMBER 1 THEMEPARK RESTURANT, AND A PARK ATMOSPHERE THATS FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. THIS THEME PARK JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER WITH EVERYTHING HARRY POTTER GOING ON AND EVERYTHING. I DONT THINK IOA NEEDED TO ADD AN ATTRACTION IN THE LAST 10 YEARS BECAUSE ITS JUST SO AMAZING AND INCREDIBLE. I DONT THINK THE THEMEING OF ANY PARK COMPARES!!!!I THINK THIS PARK HAS THE BEST THEMEPARK DESIGNERS IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE ALL THE OTHER PARKS THOUGH!

From steve lee
Posted June 6, 2008 at 4:24 AM
I dunno...I kinda like the bit about "it's such a good park, they didn't have to add anything for 10 years." That's an interesting take on the park's ten year stagnation...

Oh, put me down for Epcot.

Mine is a close call between Six Flags GRadv or BGE.

From Christy Shuman
Posted June 6, 2008 at 6:37 AM
Hey Jake get your facts right, BGE does have coasters over 200ft, Appollos chariot-210ft, Griffon 205ft. What a dork lol

there all pretty great!!

From jim boyadjis
Posted June 8, 2008 at 8:13 PM
In my rankings... the park i always have the most fun is actually dorney park mainly due to the fact you get the waterpark and amusement parks for a low price together and there are NEVER LINES FOR ANYTHING. If big parks like six flags, hershey, and cedar point could cut lines it woudl be a different decision. The're just not always enjoyable.

I prefer Disney World to Disneyland resort, because of the sheer amount of things to do and see there. But, this is a thread about individual theme parks. So I have to say Disneyland is the greatest. It is beautiful, charming, and has the highest concentration of rides and attractions.

From Gareth H

IOA for themeing,
BGA for Relaxation and beauty
SeaWorld Orlando also. Despite being busy, there is always something calm and relaxing about it!

Disney's Animal Kingdom is my favorite theme park.

It has the best themed coaster (Everest), one of the best dark rides (Dinosaur), an excellent Safari Ride (Kilimanjaro), the best themed white water raft ride not named Grizzly River Run (Kali River Rapids), an excellent 4D movie (It's Tough to be a Bug), two top notch shows (Nemo and Festival of the Lion King), two animal walking tours one of which is just outstanding (Maharajah Jungle Trek), a pretty nifty bird show (Flights of Wonder), and a petting zoo area if you make it back to that part of the park (Raffiki's Watch). Add to that all the exploration you can do around the Tree of Life, the Oasis, and the Boneyard, and you have an excellent day for the whole family.

EPCOT would have to be a very close second. I could spend days in the World Showcase just exploring and stuffing my face....
