Disney World covers 66 square miles and has 24 themed resort hotels, four theme parks and two water parks. The theme parks include Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The main water parks at Disney are Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Because of its size, kids can experience just about anything at Disney World. In Epcot, you can travel through 11 different countries in the World Showcase. If you go to Animal Kingdom, you can see animals and wildlife from all over the world. At Typhoon Lagoon, you can snorkel and swim with real sharks. Disney World offers endless amounts of fun and attractions for everyone in the family. It’s absolutely perfect for a back-to-school bash! Cedar Point Are you a thrill-seeker who loves high speeds and steep drops? If so, Cedar Point is the perfect theme park for you. Since it’s the only amusement park in the world with four roller coasters that stand more than 200 feet tall, it’s no wonder Cedar Point’s slogan is, “Roller Coaster Capital of the World”. The park has 16 roller coasters and 16 thrill rides, so there are plenty of different ways to get your blood pumping. Maverick is a steel launched roller coaster with a 95-degree drop, making it the steepest ride in the park. Furthermore, many other coasters in the park offer tall drops, high speeds, or a combination of both, which allows visitors to take on many thrilling challenges. There are also several resorts and camp grounds where you can stay while visiting Cedar Point to make your experience even more memorable. Knott’s Berry Farm Its slogan is ‘America’s 1st Theme Park’ and with a history dating back to 1934, Knott’s Berry Farm very well could be. The park features ten roller coasters, two water rides and five different themed areas. At Knott’s Berry Farm, you can also visit Ghost Town, Fiesta Village, The Boardwalk, Camp Snoopy and Indian Trails. Camp Snoopy is home to many of the park’s rides for small children and families. It also features several characters from Charles M. Schulz’s famous comic strip called “Peanuts.” The school bells will ring soon, but before they do, end summer with a bang and go to one of the United States’ best amusement parks for a back-to-school bash.
