The following is according to Mapquest:

Camp Snoopy
5000 Center Court - Mall Of America
Bloomington, MN
55425-5500 US

Total Distance: 382.36 miles
Total Estimated Time:
6 hours, 15 minutes

1 Valleyfair Dr
Shakopee, MN
55379-3012 US

Total Distance: 393.80 miles
Total Estimated Time:
6 hours, 27 minutes

It looks like the Winners are SFGAm and Little A-Merrick-A. Though it depends on where you are coming from to get to Cedar Grove, WI that will make the difference here as to what is on the way (if you are driving.)

Also of note is that you could drive to Manitowoc to take a ferry across Lake Michigan to the town of Ludington, MI. Departure times are 12:30 AM and 1:15 PM. Highly recommend getting reservations. From Ludington you can go to Michigan's Adventure near Muskegon, MI. It costs $78 round trip per person. Vehicle fares are $49 each way and does not include the per person fare.

The website for the Ferry is here:

Manitowoc, WI

Total Distance: 40.80 miles
Total Estimated Time:
45 minutes

From Ludington to
Michigan's Adventure
4750 Whitehall Road
Muskegon, MI
49445-9350 US

Total Distance: 50.49 miles
Total Estimated Time:
57 minutes

The cruise across Lake Michigan is 4 hours.

Based on where you live (in Ohio) you will likely pass right by SFGAm if you are driving. I live 20 min from the park and highly recommend it if you have never been there before.

Some would consider this a "place of amusement"....

In Cottage Grove, you'll be a stone's throw from Road America, the best (IMO) road racing track in the U.S. It's 4.5 miles long and 13 turns through the beautiful rolling Wisconsin countryside. If you like racing, definitely make a stop.

Yeah, you know rcdb has this awesome feature, you put in a zip code, and it brings up the local parks. Wham bam, voila. No need to make other people work. ;) Glad to see you got your info... Have a nice day! :)

If you are into trains, Little-A-Merrik-A should definitely be a stop for you.

Just go there and take the train ride. You wont be disappointed. Oh, and they have 3 coasters as well. :)

Hey Echo, Road America is only four miles long, not 4.5 and 14 turns, not 13 (although some literature throws in a turn 15 in somewhere). I grew up at that track as my dad raced on it all the time. I will agree with you though that it is the best racetrack around. Believe me, I have been to many.

If I were you, I would hit SFGAm on the way in if you can. Great park, probably the best of the Six Flags.

If you are into nostaligic parks and dont mind the lack of a coaster, check out Bay Beach up in Green Bay. Each ride will only set you back 20 cents. For adults they have a Chance YoYo, bumper cars, a ferris wheel, a scrambler, a scat?, and a tilt a whirl. I think there is one other ride in there but I cannot think of it. The fun of the place is that it just feel so old fashioned. I can almost see the trolley parks of the 1920's while I am there. I have friends up in Green Bay and make a stop at Bay Beach with them every year at least once.

Little Americka is ok, ok rides, mediocre coasters (this is a credit whore stop if anything) The only real redeeming feature of this park is the miniature train. I have visited the park exactly once, and even the fact that it is the closest park to my house hasnt enticed me to ever return.

go to sfgam, cause it kicks ass :)

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes.
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
