      All these parks look and sound wonderful, even if I might be a bit too old for most of the attractions. :P I would love to spend days and weekends in them.

      Glad to see Hershey Park on this list. I lived there for a while and grew up going there every summer because my mom is from Hershey. If you are a coaster fan, this is one of the best places to get your thrills on. I would add to the list Dollywood. Especially since they have expanded majorly over the past few years.
