Cities with Great Theme Parks



The United States of America boasts the largest assemblage of theme parks on planet earth. As competition is fierce, every theme park operator is faced with the challenging task to innovate rides, attractions, and other guest experiences. As you might imagine, theme parks from 20 years ago don’t look the same as they do today. Faster, larger, more “high tech” are the mandates to keep guests engaged.



There’s no better time to visit a theme park in the USA! Since most major theme parks are in, or nearby, large metropolises, traveling to these shrines of fun is easy! Here’s a list of some US cities that are home to amazing theme parks.



Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse welcome you to the Disneyland Resort.

Los Angeles, California

Southern California’s popularity is undeniable. With a relatively steady climate and recreation offerings that are the envy of the world, it makes sense that this region is home to numerous “top shelf” and groundbreaking theme parks. While the City of Los Angeles - Opens a dialog itself is “technically” home to one major theme park (Universal Studios Hollywood), there are several others that are adjacent to the City of Angels – and each one of these parks are responsible for laying the framework for how theme parks around the world should operate.

The most popular in the region is Disneyland Resort - Opens a dialog which is home to both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure. Whether you are a Disney purist who enjoys traditional Disney storytelling through Snow White or Peter Pan, or if you enjoy thrills from the Star Wars saga or all things Marvel, this multigenerational world of amusement and imagination has something for everyone!

      Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse welcome you to the Disneyland Resort.

      Just a stone’s throw from Disneyland Resort is Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott’s recently celebrated its 100th birthday, and it is just as popular now as it has ever been! Quintessentially “Old West” in theme, it is a living time capsule that peacefully coexists with the modern attractions of today. You and your family can enjoy a ride in a traditional Stage Coach and witness gold mining while aboard the Calico Mine Ride, and moments later, go speeding down a high speed track on Xcelerator, and then careen through numerous loops on Hangtime The Ride.

      Not only Is Universal Studios Hollywood a fully operational movie and TV studio, it also is home to numerous thrilling movie-themed attractions for the whole family. From its Wizarding World of Harry Potter land to its Minions 4D attraction, to its ever-popular Studio Tour, Universal Studios Hollywood is many things, but boring it is not.

      If high adrenaline roller coasters are your passion, then Six Flags Magic Mountain is the place for you. As the current roller coaster capital of the world, Six Flags Magic Mountain boasts 19 roller coasters, many of which hold record-breaking titles.

Through its 4 different theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom), millions of individuals continue to live out childlike fantasies through its imaginative wonders.
