Not a bad writeup, but they need to double-check some of their "facts". Also, they seem to put a lot of emphasis on "as adults we're putting up with this for the kids", which as we all know is FAR from the case for many people.

Teh "putting up with it for the kids" not only says something about attitude towards amusement parks, it also says something about the author's attitude towards kids. When my kids were little, I used to love to take them to Sesame Place even though it didn't offer much for me directly. It was a blast just watching them.
Yeah, I just saw that, beast7369! I totally freaked out and was like, "That's not right!" I guess it would be a little different as a ride though...

Yeah, I'm a little pissed about that. Perhaps they didnt want to pony up the money to be *featured*. And look at the BEC parks. Strange that they have 3 separate pages instead of putting them all together....
something smells fishy...and it's not yeaterdays lunch...

My question is why aren't the SIX FLAGS parks on the list? I can hardly believe some little Sesame Street theme park could top SIX FLAGS. I Really think that SIX FLAGS should be on the list. Also, why are they saying that Ceder Point has the most roller coasters in the world with 15?....For their info, Six Flags Magic Mountain also has 15 roller coasters! Its just my opinion, tell me if you agree!
The guy is a stick in the mud writting for a bunch of other sticks in the mud. That much is very clear. His family sees him as nothing buy a wallet unfortunatly. He'd rather be playing golf and away from his wife and kids I am sure. What a sad dude.
Someone at CP scanned a negative the wrong way around and emailed it to Forbes. You would think that they would know better.
*I just noticed that a woman wrote it. I guess she is just trying to appeal to the readers.
