I couldn’t stop eating the green ones. I definitely want more!!

With your tickets you get FREE Soft drinks, Parking, Sunscreen, & Even FREE Wi-Fi.  This park also has the WORLD LARGEST WATER RIDE. Don't Miss out on this fantastic Park! Located in Santa Claus, Indiana!

3. Knoebels  is another Great park in the great state of Pennsylvania. One thing about this park is that its FREE admission and FREE Parking. So you can come anytime and enjoy all the FREE things going on in the park. This is a family friendly park and what is great about this park is there is a kiddie section to the park that has so many great rides for the kiddos to go on. Located in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. 

4. Disney World is of course one HUGE FAMILY attraction. Many dont get to go because of financial reasons but if you plan ahead and you plan a trip to Walt-Disney World you will not be disappointed. So many rides to ride and sights to see. Of course this is located in Orlando, Florida.

5. Six Flags is a great park. Between concerts, water rides, and all those thrill seeking rides this amusement park is an awesome place. One thing about Six Flags is this amusement park is located in many different parts of the world. From New York to Canada, and even Mexico with all the places in between. Go see where the closest is to you!
