The Best Parks To go To In a Week

What would be the perfect theme park trip that can be done in a week in a car not by plane from Texas.

2 questions

• Would you consider flying out and renting a car back. I ask that, because I've wanted to do that for quite a while now.

• Do you want to eliminate parks within a certain range from home, which is what I normally do, because I figure I can always get to those another time.

P.S. My suggestions for parks might be a wish list, because I haven't been to Texas yet.

Anyone going with you that can share the driving.

How many miles a day are comfortable with.

If you can do 2 weeks, it would be much better.

A friend of mine and I, back in 1983 and 1984 were able to do a lot in 2 weeks. 3700 and 4600 miles respectively. By driving every other night and getting a first available room at a hotel, showering, going into that park for the day, then staying there that night and getting on the road early the next morning (saving on hotels and switching on the driving, so the other can catch short naps). Probably 4 of the best weeks of my life.

Not trying to be difficult, just help you better.

Going to a bunch theme parks can be afordable but airfare would shoot it through the roof in money wise

If your looking for great parks that are fairly close to each other I would head for the Ohio/Indiana area. You could hit Cedar Point, Kings Island and maybe Six Flags Ohio. On the way back you could hit Holiday World in Indiana or Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. You couldn't hit all of them in a week but in Cedar Point and Kings Island you have two of the best parks within 4 to 5 hours of each other. Going to these two parks alone would be well worth it.

In two weeks you can easily hit Holiday World, SFKK, PKI, CP, SFO, PKD, and SFOG. Thats 7 right there and there may be more. Good Luck.

Maybe try this if youre thinking of going to Ohio:
Start with PKI, then Cedar Point. Then hop on the Turnpike and make a stop at SFO. Get right back on the turnpike and head to Kennywood. Then you can hit Knoebels and Hershey in 2 days (spend half a day at Knoebels and if you have time, catch the free night at Hershey before spending the next day there.)
While you're in the area, you may want to hit Dorney too, but I hear that's not the greatest looking park around. Just a suggestion.

I have done this:
on your drive up, go through missouri and hit Silver Dollar City(opening a killer B&M sitdown next year!), SFStl, then head towards ohio, with a stopoff at Holiday World, SFKK, PKI, SFO, CEDAR POINT.
also consider Worlds of Fun in Kansas City- it is a little out of the way, but Mamba is a pretty cool hyper.

on drive home hit, visionland-in brimingham alambama, Magic Spring(hot springs arkansas), and Jazzland-new orleans(all three of those parks have killer woodies!). Also consider Dollywood and SFover Georgia on the drive home( a bit out of the Way)

hope this is helpful!
if you need any info on any of these parks, i have been to each, so just ask!

I know. but if you could, you'd have one hell of a time! It would be a lot easier to leave out SFstl and SFO. But then youd miss out on some great cosaters.
BUT DONT MISS PKI OR HOLIDAY WORLD! if you like wood coasters, those two are the bomb!

im getting off tonight, going to holiday world tommorrow. If you have any questions, email me at adam_b_16@hotmail.com

I'm not planning your itinerary, but telling you mine. Be creative.

Last year: (Pittsburgh to San Diego -- moving):
Idlewild, Sea World (Aurora), Holiday World, Six Flags St. Louis, Six Flags Elitch's, Riverside, Manhattan Express & MGM Grand park (Las Vega), Buffalo Bill's.

This year: (Also Pittsburgh to San Diego, driving a truck with furniture): Kennywood, Waldameer, Paramount Kings Island, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, Worlds of Fun, Santas Workshop (Colorado Springs), Castles & Coasters (Phoenix)

Obviously, there were a lot of other choices, but we tried to pick ones we hadn't been to in the last year, AND we had to keep to a fairly straight route, AND because we are traveling in August, some of our first choices were already closed.
