Knoebels (actually Hershey and Knoebels are tied for 1st)
Six Flags Great Adventure
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags Over Georgia
Sea World San Diego
Six Flags Fiesta Texas (although this is the prettiest Six Flags Park)
Knott's Berry Farm
Universal Studios Hollywood
Some of my favorites that I try to visit as much as possible:
Busch Gardens Europe
If anybody finds themselves near Santa Claus, IN sometime (near Evansville...about 1 hour West of Louisville), definitely stop and visit Holiday World. The original theme park, Holiday World has three top-notch wooden coasters, a great family atmosphere and collection of rides, FREE soft drinks all day long in the park and a waterpark that's included with park admission. It's a lot of fun, it's clean and well worth a visit.
Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

Hmm. For me I like a park really based off it's rollercoasters. I mean Six Flags over Georgia isn't the best run park, doesn't have the best clientel, but it has some really spectacular rides. On the flip side, Paramount's Carowinds really lacked excellent rides, but was run pretty well, had pretty polite and normal clientel and great park security. I just really missed the rides.
I'd have to say outside of Disney, my top park is probably Six Flags New England. It has that balance of being decently run and has some good rides (Superman ).
Outside of the Disney parks, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, now called Busch Gardens Europe, is my favorite park. It's got a lot of variety in a beautiful setting and it's well maintained. We used to be passport holders here. My favorite time to go is in the Spring and during the Fall for Howl-O-Scream.
I don't care for any of the Six Flags parks. I am most familar with Great Adventure in NJ and America in MD. I've been to some of the others, but overall the parks aren't well maintained. I'll still go if someone else wants to go, but I prefer going to Hershey or Dorney before those two.
Amanda Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?
I like Busch Gardens and Adventure Island Tampa, FL. We have the EZpay Passports, basically your monthly payment plan AP for those parks. I like the theming they have, they work shade a lot better than Disney IMHO and the coasters can not be beat.
Adventure Island is just a great water park that my family frequents many a weekend.
