TOP 100 Amusement & WATER Parks IN THE USA


The United States has hundreds of amusement and water parks. But which ones are widely considered to be the best? We have put together a highly-opinionated list of what we believe to be the top 100 amusement & water parks in the United States. It is not an easy task to pick 100 top amusement & water parks, so this web-page will forever be a work-in-progress as we travel & visit more parks across the country.

This top 100 amusement & water parks list is sorted alphabetically by state (and not by rating or quality).
