Such entertainment centers have been around for a long time, some for more than a century, and they seem to improve every year. They keep expanding and adding more and more attractions. The parks have many different types of slides – from water coasters to roller coasters, thrilling rides and heart-stopping vertical drops.
Arcades, zip lines and gondolas have become a regular feature. There is no need to worry about paying for a plane ticket because exciting amusement and theme parks are located all across the country. A weekend road trip will be enough for a fun family vacation, even if you don’t live near the ocean.
