We went to Orlando a few years ago and had a very theme park centric break. We're going to the West Coast later this year and are going to be spending a few days in LA, so we'd like to hit up a couple of theme parks there too.
Our favourite park in Orlando was probably Universal Islands of Adventure (Spiderman, Harry Potter, Hulk, amazing water rides etc) so for that reason we're quite keen to go to Universal Hollywood even though the rides are quite different - my girlfriend also wants to brave the Halloween Horror Nights again after a hasty exit a few years ago :)
Six Flags looks to have the best assortment of roller-coasters by far, and despite loving roller-coasters (Hulk, Kraken and SheiKra were all huge highlights in Orlando!) I'm struggling to get excited about a visit to Magic Mountain for some reason.
As for the Disney parks... it was a real mixed bag in Orlando (we both thought Epcot was terrible) but some of the attractions between the two parks look great, in particular Indiana Jones Adventure, Springs Racers, Toy Story Midway Mania and of course the shows like Fantasmic are a big draw.
Any suggestions please? We'd be staying quite centrally in LA and won't be hiring a car if that makes a difference... I know the Disney parks in particular can be a bit of a pain to get to by bus.
