I recently did Kennywood, Knoebels, Hersheypark, Williams Grove, Idlewild, Dutch Wonderland, & Dorney Park, & PTC headquarters in a single trip of driving back and forth through the state to the tune of 1700 miles.

What did you do that was so bad that a whole group got banned from school? ;)
The most parks I've gotten is 1! SFGAm, Big Chief's, or Knott's Camp Snoopy! Next summer though I'm going to MI's Adventure, SFWoA, and finally CP! I'm going to try to convince my parents to take the long way around Lake Michigan on the way back instead of the ferry so we can stop at SFGAm too.
...I'd bet you missed a lot of what makes those all great parks."
If you only knew how many times I've been to each and every one of those parks. I've been to Disney World well over 200 times, BGTB about 100, Sea World about 30 and Universal and IOA about 200. I live for these theme parks!

The intersting part about this trip involved it being done with a 4 year old and a 6 year old.
At first, we started out with fewer parks, but the chant of "10 parks" "10 parks" kept growing, and with a bit of change in the plans, was actually pretty easy. And with some thought we got in several "all day" visits.
No rain helped. Temps in the 90s at times didn't.
One of those things the kids will "recite" when they are older.

No, I drove every single mile of the trip. It was a bit exhausting but I tried to make it so I wouldn't have to drive every day.
Order? More like Chaos! I started from Milwaukee, WI and went to: Delgrosso, Lakemont, Williams Grove, Hershey, Dorney, Knoebels, PKD, SFA, Morey's, SFGADv, Lake Compounce, SFNE, Great Escape, Martins, SFDL, Waldameer, Conneaut, SFWOA.
