It's a big year for fans of theme parks and roller coasters all over North America. The long list of new attractions includes the rock 'n' roll-themed Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, S.C.; the Nickelodeon-themed park at Minnesota's Mall of America; Toy Story Mania! at Disney World; The Simpsons at Universal; and enough new thrill rides to literally make your head spin.
Read more from USA Today.

I can't believe the article didn't mention Ravine Flyer II .

I incorrectly credited this story, as it's actually an AP story. I talked to a USA Today
reporter fairly recently and named Ravine Flyer as one of the rides worth writing about. Sure, no one had yet been on it at the time, but the bridge alone makes it an interesting thing to talk about it. Hopefully that story will run soon.

I remember this writer from last year. I believe she wrote an article about the Halloween activities at one of the Six Flags parks.
This was a good article-- nice to see one that includes more than the usual Orlando/Southern California attractions.
