Knotts Berry Farm it became a great roller Coaster Park after being bought out by Cedar Pointe.

I like KennyWood in Pittsburgh. Great old school park.

I really like Disney Parks, but I hate the crowds and how expensive they have become

Cedar Point without a single doubt. No theme park in America comes close, Universal Studios is a distant second.

Yeah, Cedar Fair is based out of Sandusky, Ohio where Cedar Point is. Interesting, if I am ever in California I will have to check out that park. Good place for coasters you say?

It has decent coasters, but no place else in the Country has the amount or variety of coasters that Cedar Point has.

Nice thing about this area are the Amusement PArks. Disney has two (although California adventure really isn't up to Disney Standards) Then you have Knotts, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain (A Six Flags Park), Lego Land, Seaworld, Plus a bunch of Water parks.

I think only the Orlando Area has more

Universal Studios in Florida? That place is awful. Long lines, lame rides, unless your talking about Islands of Adventure. I think Busch Gardens gives them both a run for their money.

Cedar Point

There is actually an organization that rates this and Cedar Point has won best park for 13 years in a row.
