GOOD East Coast Parks

Friday, June 28, 2002 12:42 PM

Where are there anymore good parks( good meaning great rides, coasters and family atmosphere) that aren't a far drive from Pa?

We have been to PKI,PKD,BGW,SFGAD,SFGA,Hershey, Dorney, Kennywood, Knoebels,CP and SFWOA.

we are looking for different parks to visit that aren't more then about an 7-8 hour drive..maybe less...that PKI and CP trip was a LONG DRIVE and I don't wanna do it again this year...

Thanks!

You have alot just in PA! You have Lakemont in Altoona, Delgrossos in Tipton, Waldameer in Erie, Coneaut Lake Park in Coneaut Lake, and then you have Rye Playland in Rye, NY, The Great Escape in Lake George, Seabreeze in Rochester, Six Flags Darien Lake in Darien Center, NY, and god, so many more! We live in a great part of the country...do a little research and have *alot* of fun!

Well, it helps to know where you live.

My take on the east, for the Mid-Atlantic anyway, is to fly to Baltimore (BWI) because it's cheap from Cleveland. Rent a car, and you're within three hours of BGW, PKD, SFA, SFGAm and Dorney.

SFGAm is a little bit farther than 3 hours from Baltimore. SFA would be a good one you haven't visited. Morey's Pier is a smaller amusement park if you'd like to try that. I'm not totally sure how far SFNE would be to drive, but I think it might be less than 7-8 hours.

Morey's Piers is quite large, and worth the 3 hr. drive to the beach.

You can hit Idlewild in the Laurel Mts., its about 4 hrs. from you.

Nobody has said anything about Idlewild Park. It's in Ligoner, and it's a nice little park. Classic PTC carousel, a junior coaster and a reletively new wild mouse, and a good selection of flats.
