You forget - this is the same website that listed Astroworld as one of the top 10 amusement parks in the country... on an annual basis. I'd say there's a strong chance it'll still be on that list next year when they reprint it for the eighth time.
The only proper place to propose is at Universal Studios when Jaws pops out of the water.
Anyone who proposes in, on, under, or around 500 feet of an amusement park has serious issues. Edit: And just for the record, I do find sporting event proposal's very tacky. *** Edited 1/13/2006 12:51:10 PM UTC by Fastball84***
Would you consider it just as tacky to propose at a sporting event? Happens all the time, (esp. with the use of Jumbotron screens & PA systems). To me, that's really tacky.
I still think the best proposal I ever saw was with the dolphins at Discovery Cove. How awesome! I even got emotional on that one. I was actually jealous of that couple, though my proposal to my wife was very cool.
Allthough I would never do it, the best place I can think of is Disney World; right in front of the castle. I believe that if you contact guest services in advance they can help you out (and for $ get Cinderella's coach/become Prince Charming for a night.)
If/When I do purpose it will be somewhere quiet, intimate, and outdoors in a park.
I proposed to my wife in the gazebo next to the Sandcastle Suites hotel with the Magnum in the background. Of course, we both worked for Cedar Point at the time so there was some sentimental reasons there.
My Husband proposed to me at Knoebels. He wanted to do it on the Merry -Go - Round but it was too crowded the day we went so he did it on car # 21 (Blue) on the Giant wheel! I knew it was coming but it still was romantic since Knoebels was the first park we went to as a couple. Now we are living in Florida and cannot wait to go back - We already have our reservations for the annual Halloween event! Knoebels will always be our HOME PARK even though he was from NJ and I was from NY! We will always have a reason to go to Knoebels! *** Edited 1/13/2006 1:30:11 PM UTC by Crazycoastergirl*** *** Edited 1/13/2006 1:30:50 PM UTC by Crazycoastergirl***
n3rd: Dont be too surprised if that night you dont get much attention. She'll likely wear herself out calling her mom, sisters, best friends, cousins, 3rd grade teacher, etc.... :)
For me, it was sort of like #7, but instead of Vegas, it was in the "95th Floor" restaurant of the John Hancock building in Chicago. It was just after the 4th of July fireworks display (which every Chicagoan knows actually takes place on the 3rd of July).
As for parks it'd either have to be the PKI/PKD Eifel (sp?) Tower or one of several places in WDW: Grand Floridian lobby/verranda, Epcot lake during fireworks, MGM Fantasmic, MK Cindy's castle or Tony's Restaurant (of Lady & the Tramp fame) and I suppose you could go to one of their on site wedding chapels/gazebos.
Adirondack State Park in NY (Well, we both proposed to each other).
I like coasters and all, but unless your mate (male or female) is also into coasters, he'll/she'll probably not be too excited if you pop the Q at an amusement park save somewhere especially nice like Disney or Discovery Cove.

I'm actually seriously thinking about proposing on the lift hill of medusa at sfgadv. I know, call me a dork or whatever...but at the same time, it was her idea to get married under the cobra roll right outside of Medusa there, since we want an outdoor wedding, and we both love coasters...so you can't place all the dorkdom on me ;)
