One last thing- out of the following parks which do you prefer- canada's wonderland, dorney, kennywood, sfwoa or sfne?
"who needs drugs when you have coasters...they're like a natural high"
They have a huge arsenal of flat rides which, and come next season... it'll bring their total up close to a total of like 68 rides. They're supposed to get a Huss Super Frisbee next season.
Their water-park is included with the admission, and again... next season, they are supposed to add 9 slides to the already nice sized water-park, so this is just like a double bonus!
You add all that up, and I am pretty much betting the farm that Canada's Wonderland will not disappoint any fan of theme parks. They may not have the newest, latest, or greatest coasters... but 12 isn't bad, and some of the best flat rides around equals a park suitable for everyone!

Skyrider (i belive its a KK clone) Vortex (suspended) The Fly(wild mouse)The Mighty Canadian Minebuster (double out & back) The Bat(boomerang) dragon fie (2inversion coaster I belive) TopGun(SLC) Silver Streak(world's first kiddie inverted coaster with a helix) Ghoster Coaster (kiddie woodie) Wild Beast (woodie) that's all I can see on the map. Their map is pretty F****d up. Check RCDB for pics.

Out of your list, I like Kennywood best. :)
My score on PCW's Scooby Doo Haunted Mansion - 2370!
A great site with lots of info and pics on PCW can be found here - http://pcw.coaster-network.com/
The coasters at PCW are good, but not really enthusiast-friendly. They have 12 coasters, each one less than 125 feet tall. (The tallest thing there is a boomerang)
The -non kiddie- coasters go as follows:
Canadian Minebuster - Good out and back woodie, but the stapling prevents massive airtime. It's really cool how the coaster goes underneith waterslides in the waterpark. A ride that is just fun, if somewhat lacking.
Skyrider - Togo standup. Most Americans know what to expect.
Dragon Fyre - Double Loop, Double corkscrew, fun, but dated.
Vortex - A sweet Arrow suspended, really fast and fun, good G's... but only 1:45 ride time. groan.
Wilde Beaste - A clone of PKD's grizzly. A cool woodie, and fun.
Top Gun/Bat - SLC/Boomerang groan.
Those are pretty much the 'biggie coasters' of the park. It also has a wild mouse, but hey like I said above it's not an enthusiast's park. No Beemers. No Hypers, Nothing really that stands out at the park that you can't find somewhere else. Somewhere where there is better coasters. But still why not go? You'll still have fun, and that's what it's all about. It's a fun park!
Flat rides are pretty good, containing mondial top scans, gravitrons, (RCT term? :)) and the atmosphere is good even with the lack of theming. So I say go, because the amount of coasters makes up for the fact that the park does not contain a 'signature ride'. Thats the main difference between PCW and other parks that you have mentioned. No signature coaster. But lots of 'em.
It's a good park! And clean and fun! And Canadian! ;)
