    It's theme park week! I think I included all the big guys and I threw Knoebels in there because it's this small park carved out of a chunk of woods in the middle of nowhere PA with a really great wooden coaster that I used to go to every year as a kid with my family and a friend's family for a week or so.

    Shit. I realized I titled this thread AWT. Ha! I'm too lazy to delete it and re-post so let's just say that my misspelled title is an homage to Wolf for keeping this idea going all these years.

    I voted for Canada's Wonderland but it was not one of the choices so I went for Cedar Point which is owned by the same company.

    Hey no DollyWood? j/k that’s a nice theme park to visit and I was lucky to go, when I use to live on the east coast.

    I know, I seen Hershey Park, but I believe I didn’t attend that theme park. But I recall touring the factory.

    Since Arizona doesn’t have any real theme parks and L.A. is only a few hours away like Disney, Universal and Six Flags Magic Mountain. I’ll go with Disney.

    So no poll closing date? That means we could change our votes anytimes and mess with the poll. ;)

    Guess I forgot to pick a time for the poll to close. It's Sunday and Disney is in the lead so Disney parks wins.

    Created by Walt himself for the 1964 NY World's Fair and a staple of the Magic Kingdom since 1975, the very tame, 20+ minute long Carousal of Progress is my favorite ride in all of Disney World. The tune (that they play like 6 times during the ride) is very catchy and thinking about the ride brings back fond memories of being at Disney with my Mom and Dad as a kid.

    The animatronics are somewhat dated but still very cool and it's neat how the audience viewing area rotates in a circle around the 4 different acts that go through the years from 1900 to the future. People say it's the "longest-running stage show" in the US but that's not really true cause there are no human actors doing live performances. It's very much a ride, just a slow moving, long one.

    I went with Six Flags, as they bought Great Adventure in NJ. That's the place I went to, growing up.

    I had some kind error uploading my image with my browser. I’ll try again in the morning. But I’ll go with one of my favorite rides the Haunted Mansion.

    It was Disney for a movie that didn't want to have a court battle.
