      It was interesting to find the water parks in NY, but the point is they are not in NY as we think NY is NYC, and all parks as I see located in NY State. NY State is very big state. It is rich in many parks as Water PArtk, Amusement Parks, lakes and forests, rivers and Wildness. I will not say that some parks are better then other. They are all interesting, and they are all very unique.

      It is interesting job you do, but it is still be better if you show separate NY City and NY State because we are, New Yorkers prefer to go to the State in holidays and weekends, but those who come to NY they are more interesting to go around the City of NY, very rich in Museums, History, Culture.

      Thanks for posting.
