Park with few coasters....but worth a day.

What park do you find has a very small amount of roller coasters, but you can find yourself spending the whole day at the park without being bored?

Knott's comes to mind for me.

Holiday World is by far the best example IMO.

As soon as I saw the title of this thread, Holiday World immediately came to mind.

Also good, but not at the same level as HW, is Indiana Beach...

Another good one is Michigan's Adventure...especially if you do the waterpark too....but then again I could ride Shivering Timbers all day and be happy.

Knoebels... The food and the flyers alone are worth the trip. Indiana Beach, Holiday World, and Big Chiefs (if you like riding go carts) are others I could spend a whole day at and not be bored.

Two parks in Pennsylvania, beginning with the letter 'K', sound like safe bets...

Certainly Knoebel's ranks high on the list. Disney's California Adventure is another one.

If you want to take it to an extreme, Epcot certainly fits the bill. No coasters, not even anything you could legitimately consider a thrill ride, and I could spend 3 days in a row there (and have).

Good answer, Mark :) Seaworld Orlando, too, although I'm into that marine life thing.

The parks that come to mind for me would be Holiday World, Indiana Beach, Kennywood, Knoebel's -- the usual suspects... Although if Kennywood (with 5 plus a kiddie) counts, then so does BGW!

Silver Dollar City. Great theming, fantastic food, really interesting crafts (real crafts, not made in Taiwan or China) and a cave. Throw in Wildfire, Buzzsaw Falls, Thunderation and Fire-in-the Hole and you can have a fantastic day. Really worth seeking out this out-of-the way park.

I'm not sure if most people would agree that it's worth an entire day, but Dollywood certainly has more to offer than just the two great coasters it has. I was only able to spend a couple of hours there, but I really would like to go back and take my time with all the attractions. Frankly, I think I could easily spend a full day there and not run out of things to do. After all, I can reride Tennessee Tornado until I pass out.

I don't really consider 5 or more to be "few"....but that's me. That being said, I really enjoy places like Miracle Strip where you probably wouldn't want to spend more than 5-6 hours, but at my age that's enough for a day...;) Hopefully I'll add the Myrtle Beach hotspots to the list come April...(Brian, are you there?). Unfortunately, Lake Winnie won't be open for that first foray *up north*...;)

Holiday World and Knoebels are *easy* to spend an entire day at....IoA has but a few coasters and is fantastic...SWO, USF could easily fit in depending on your interests...

I think another park that is easy to spend a day at is Conneaut. Even though there's only 2 coasters(plus the kiddie coaster) they have a good selection of flats and just the atmosphere of the park is great, too.

Strickers Grove, only 2 coasters that were built in house, and the park is only open 2 days a year to the puublic.

I know rollergator already mentioned it, but I'm puting in another vote for Islands of Adventure. Only three coasters, but still an amazing park.

Oh...and of course, Holiday World.

No one's mentioned Indiana Beach yet? Where's the love? Though by 'Gator's count it doesn't qualify...but still. :)

Edit: apparently I can't read. Sorry. Have a nice day all. :)
