Boston doesn't have an amusement park, Canobie Lake Park in the Nashua, NH area and 6 Flags in Springfield. Boston does have a zoo, but I wouldn't put it up against a lot of other cities zoo's, I've been to Cinci and Seattle, they're both better than Boston's Franklin Park or Stoneham Zoo.

North Carolina seems to have a different approach to zoo locations than most other states. Instead of having each of the state's cities run their own zoos, they run a state zoo that is near the geographic center of the state.

Phoenix doesn't have an amusement park. Charlotte, Las Vegas, and Austin don't have zoos.

Does Austin have an amusement park? Closest one I can think of is in New Braunfels, which I associate more closely to San Antonio.

Boston had at least three Amusement parks. All built in the trolley car era by street car companies who were trying to spur ridership on Sundays. paragon park at Nantasket Beach, Revere Beach, and Norumbega park. All gave way to real estate development

Houston lost Astroworld decades ago and nothing has opened in its place.

Houston also doesn't have an aquarium really.
