All of Maine's amusement parks and zoos are below Portland, meaning they're at least an hour and 15 minutes from Augusta, 2 and a half hours from Bangor, 4 hours from Houlton, and over 5 hours from Aroostook County.

I made a correction, I just realized Houlton is also part of Aroostook County.

Pittsburgh is closer to Idlewild & Soakzone than it is to DelGrosso's and Lakemont Park.

Pittsburgh zoo and PPG aquarium are the same place. The aquarium is in the zoo. There is one entrance, one parking lot, one admission fee. Worst of all, the aquarium is at the very back of the zoo, so you have to walk through the entire place to get there, which keeps people from visiting the aquarium in inclement weather.

You're right that Corpus Christi has neither a traditional amusement park or a zoo. Funtrackers has Corpus Christi's only roller coaster but it's otherwise a different kind of a family fun center than an amusement park. The closest zoo to Corpus Christ is an hour and a half away in Victoria, Texas. Corpus Christi does have the Texas State Aquarium, the largest aquarium in Texas and one of the largest aquariums in the United States. Corpus Christi also has multiple water parks including Hurricane Alley Water Park and Schlitterbahn.

Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is also the same way, which does give people living in the Columbus area a reason to drive to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium and Newport Aquarium (the latter is just across the Ohio River in Kentucky).

Looking down Wikipedia's list of most populated cities in the United States, Charlotte is the largest city in the United States to not have a zoo but it was mentioned in the first page of this thread that North Carolina runs a state zoo in the center of the state instead of having a different zoo in each city. Las Vegas is the next largest city to have no traditional zoo, though they do have "Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat".
