Great places to live.

I feel blessed to live where I do. I grew up east of Cleveland and was able to claim CP as my home park. I now live just outside of Pittsburgh. Kennywood is great, and I am still close to so many great parks. Still close to CP, PKI, SFWOA and though I haven't made it there yet, Hershey. So many great parks just a short drive away. Thank you God!

How many others live close to a lot of great parks?

I live near you, CP ismyhome. I live in good ol' Altoona. I like it here because so many parks are so close. I have a great selection of one day trips to choose from within a a 1.5-4 hour drive.

If I can't get to a big, far away park, I just go to one of my two home parks, Lakemont and DelGrossos, and spend a few hours:)

I live in the worst place of all for amusment parks(well it could be worse but). I live 3:15 from SFDL, 2:30 from the Great Escape, and more than a day trip to anywhere else. Also about 45 minutes away is Sylvan Beach but no one has ever heard of it so.

Altoona is a great place Dexter. My parents lived there for a few years. My dad worked for the railroad at JBS, but is retired now and moved back home to Ohio. I'm kickin myself in the but for never going to Lakemont park. I must have drove past it a hundred times, but never made it. I still plan on going some day, just to say that I was on the oldest coaster in the world.

The one great thing about where I live is the two amusement parks I do have are just a short 20 min away from pretty much anywhere in Denver. But there isn't anything else within 6 hours.

Well, being in FL I'm next to a lot of parks. Sometimes I love my location, sometimes I don't, but I'd never move to a state without year round parks now. So, if I were to go anywhere, it'd be CA. Anywho my park time tables are:

IOA, USF, SWF, Wet 'n Wild, MK, AK, MGM, Epcot, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, and Old Town are all within 30-45 minutes...

BGT & Adventure Island are within 105-120 minutes

Boomers! within 3-3.5 hours

Wild Adventures within 4 hours

It gets too lengthy after that...

Universal Orlando regular since the first day of IOA's soft opening...
