Busch Gradens, two locations: Virginia and Florida
One of those few theme parks in the world which manage to strike a spot-on balance between thrilling rides and the green areas of calm and peace. Busch Gardens in Tampa is like a piece of savanna in North America. You can hire a 4x4 and go on a safari or try a massive wooden roller coaster Gwazi with double loops and reaching speeds of 50mph. In Busch Gardens, Virginia among tons of wildlife and nature attractions there is the Apollo’s Carriage, a ride known for it’s enormous heights.

Cedar Point is a heaven and paradise for all adrenaline junkies out there. Not for the faint hearted. There are 15 super fast behemoth roller coasters and a sea of smaller, but equally thrilling rides. In fact, Cedar Point has the biggest number of rides of all the theme parks. And the highest of them all, Wicked Twister offers a amazing feeling of spinning in the air with no gravity and zooms at colossal speeds on a track’s spaghetti.
