Vast Canadian prarie?? You mean the CITY of Vaughan? Because it's smack in the middle of it. Wasn't origionally, but the city is engulfing it now... Anyway, I think the best skylines are the Magic Kingdom, (there's nothing better than Cindarella's castle early in the morning), or Cedar Point, driving up the causeway and seeing all those coasters sticking out of the lake... ooh, it gives me goosebumps... :) ------------- -Dave Rutherford *If things seem under control, you're just not going fast enough*
Well, driving onto the rt.50 bridge into Ocean City ,MD is impressive, with Trimpers and the Ocean Pier on the left, and condo row on the far right. And coming over off the Garden State Pkwy. onto the North Wildwood exit over the bay is great. You see the ocean straight ahead, then you see on the left the towering rides on Morey's Piers. The distance spans about a mile from pier to pier. That is a sight. Though Cedar Point is not so bad.
I like SFGAM's while driving down I94 it suddenly appears and bites you in the ___. Road - Theme Park. I also Like the SFMM setting within the hills. For instance when your going North on the Interstate all you see is Goliath and the Skytower buried by the hills. CP has a great skyline, I also get the Goosebumps driving down the causeway.
I don't agree that MA has a nice skyline. MA is one of the ugliest parks I've ever been to. It's skyline has nothing on CP's skyline. Please not that just because I think MA is ugly, doesn't mean I think it's bad. I enjoy going to MA. I just think it's ugly.
Oh let's see...a 205 ft. coaster, a 300+ ft. coaster, a 300ft. freefall ride, the second largest stand-up in the world, a giant ferris wheel and a space spiral all surrounded by water. I can't think of any other park that looks this impressive. CP all the way...no comparison.
SFMM has more structures over 200' than CP. (or at least it will soon with X and DV) Skytower, Goliath, Superman, and Viper. (almost 200') And THE tallest standup in the world. Nothing is cooler than Viper staring you in the face as you come up Magic Mountain Parkway! I vote for The Mountain. BTW Martling, Mantis is the 3rd tallest standup. Riddler #1, then Chang, THEN Mantis.

I'd also have to cast my vote for Cedar Point. My favorite part about the skyline started before i even got into view of the skyline. I was heading on a road name I can's remember towards the Point and passed Sandusky airfield. I wasn't driving, and was leisurely looking out the right side of the car. There was a break in the trees, and there, in all its glory, were MF's first 3 hills. Yeah, Cedar Point wins, hands down(or up?).
Six Flags Fiesta Texas has the best skyline. The wooden Rattler is just beautiful, and Superman Krypton Coaster on top of the rock quarry looks awesome. The whole park being inside the quarry gives it an unbelievably awesome look.
