...to Nightcoaster's Amusement Park Guide - the oldest amusement park reference site on the web, established in 1996 and ready for your use for the 2017 park season, celebrating 21 years on the web and continuing to provide more information and links than ever before. Checking links and adding new ones is a constant process, so if you find a bad link or have one you think should be added, please use the comment link below to send me the info. Amusement park owners and managers continue to do their best to provide you with days full of fun and excitement that won't put too much stress on your budget. If you love amusement parks, find a way to make it happen! There are plenty of ways to save money by camping out instead of staying in a hotel, or staying with friends who live closer to the park. Pack your lunch or dinner and picnic in the parking lot if the park allows. Go with a group and get a group discount on tickets and/or watch for package deals that include more than one park or more than one visit. Many of the parks offer discounts if you purchase your tickets through their website.
Don't forget to check out the links above for waterparks, zoos, aquariums, and other great info like coasters and parks that have been in the movies. There's also the Mountain Coaster Directory, still in development!
You may have noticed that more and more parks have reviews listed. While I continue to visit and revisit quite a few parks each year, many of the reviews are provided by YOU! Take a look at the review section and see how you can help by sending me your reviews!
The park web pages are the official ones whenever possible, though I have linked to a few reliable, but unofficial pages. Comments, or links to be considered, are always welcome.
The listings here continue to include a few places that aren't strictly amusement parks as far as the more typical ride selection, but most people who enjoy amusement parks will also enjoy these wonderful places.
I have been visiting parks since 1989, and love adding different parks to my own list as I get the chance to visit them.
Keep coming back (especially during the summer) to see what reviews I've added to the list! Currently, I've been to 340 different parks and ridden 1011 different roller coasters. (858 steel and 153 wooden) If you want to know a little more about how many coasters I ride each year, Click here. And, if you're curious, there's a list of my coaster milestones here.
That's it for now! Hope you enjoy the website and have a wonderful time at the park(s) of your choice!
