    Since it has no rides, I'm not sure you'd consider it a theme park or not, but I'd like to say the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I'd say King's Dominion in Virginia, but it has been over 12 years since I've been there. I hope that it is still as good as it used to be.

    Cedar Point for roller coaster thrills.
    Universal Orlando for rides and themeing.
    Possibly HersheyPark for beauty, but its been so long since I've been there.

    You mean there are parks outside of Disney?

    If I had to pick the 'best' non-disney park, I have to pick Nara Dreamland because of the remarkable resemblance to another park we know. Seriously, it is like Little Tykes version of Disneyland.

    Knotts in the 70's!

    It was working the old west theme to the hilt. There was a Gypsy Camp, a theater with good shows, and oh so odd walk through exhibits around the ghost town. Plus, well before Disney Seas, Knott's had an active volcano! Disney's Frontierland seemed small by comparison. I believe Knott's also had the bigger train complete with robbery, and the better Stage Coach ride.

    I miss the robbers. It is a joke on the train now and they don't even do it on the Stage Coach.

    Theme parks:
    NOT IoA. Sorry, it's a nice park, but not one of the world's best. De Efteling is - it's wonderful! As is Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

    Amusement parsk which I do not consider theme parks:
    Cedar Point, Kennywood, Coney Island (not a park per se of course).

    It's gone downhill very fast. I used to live 30 minutes away.

    IOA...if only for Spiderman.

    My favorite attractions go like this
    1. Haunted Mansion
    2. Tower of Terror
    3. Indiana Jones
    4. Spiderman
    St. Elizabeth, Patron Saint of Themed parks. Protect us from break downs, long lines, and used gum. Amen.

    You see Marriott's tried to be like Disney. With A train station, Ice Show, Imax type theater, Rides and WARNER BROS cartoon characters.
    WOW, we were just there Yesterday, it was SO SAD. That Beautiful blue pool in front of the carousel has turned to an orangish moldy color, and the place just looks worn out and tired. I Miss it too from the early 80's when it was themed and FUN. Gone are the Tidal Wave, and the HUGE three Wheeled Sky-wheel. The Demon is still fun...
