This Summer go WestWith Transformers and Cars Land, L.A. is the place to go for theme park fans.
From Daniel EtcheberryTransformers looks great, and Cars Land looks amazing. I can't believe I will be strolling the town of Radiator Springs! As an extra pleasure one will get to see L.A. just as Walt saw it when he arrived for the first time (Buena Vista Street)

From Nick Markham^I'm not sure about that. It really depends on what the theme park fan is looking for. The latest 2012 additions in SoCal certainly are beginning to level the playing filed thematically, but California will always dominate the roller coaster side of things (though I must admit BGA has some great coasters).

From Zack McDonaldWe had plans to hit CA. this year but my Dad pushed it back to next year so that we can also hit the new GCI coster at Great America.
