    The Second is Efteling in the Netherlands because their DarkRides aren't too bad and when you walk everywhere in the park it's pretty and so magical .

    what's yours ?
    How funny: I was thinking the Efteling in the Netherlands too when I saw the post. I second both IOA and the Efteling!

    I'll second that, both parks always take The Golden Ticket Award year after year as the most beautiful parks in the world according to Amusment Today:

    Efteling very much reminded me of DL, such incredible immersive dark rides and fantastic detailed theming, was just blown away even if they didn't have any world class coasters.

    My top 3 outside of Disney.

    3-Six Flags Great Adventure. Interesting how SF finally realised they had a gem on their hand and are turning it into what it should have been... One of the best seasonal theme park in the world.

    2-Busch Gardens Williamsburg... I went there once and just wish to return!

    1-Hersheypark. It has everything. Family rides, good rollercoasters, awesome landscaping, history and next year, they're getting a strange dark ride! Kinda like MIB...

    As for IOA and USF, yuck is all I have to say on those places.

    1) IoA just for Hulk and the incredible theming everywhere you look. The rest of the rides were pretty impressive too.
    2) Sea World Orlando for sheer beauty and also 2 great rides, Krakken and Atlantis (Sea World West's Atlantis is a pale imitation of the real thing).
    3) Universal Studios Orlando - Men in Black beats Buzz Lightyear by leaps and bounds.

    Legoland . I don't know why, but this tiny little park in Caslbad is just really interesting.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Islands of Adventure, & Knott's still keep their theming well. The topics is best Theme parks, after all.

    If we account for general amusement parks, I'd also have to add Holiday World, Indiana Beach, Legoland, Knobels, Busch Gardens Tampa, Cedar Point, and Magic Mountain (no theming whatsoever, but good thrill rides).
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    As for Knoebels, it's so overgrown and lush that there's this sense you're removed, something I apprecicate at every Disney park.
