Europa-Park park wins for me. It’s in Rust Germany.

We went over Christmas time and it had Christmas markets with snow all around. Rides were still operational and so much to do and see.

Later on at night they had fire pits to warm your self up by.

Best roller coaster was called Arthur and we went on it many many times.

If I could go back there I would but I would do this over a couple of days not just one.

Haven’t been to enough to make a call.

Best one I’ve been to is Hong Kong Disneyland, our kids were at the right ages for the rides and it was big enough to do in a day but not so big that we felt we missed out on anything.

I’m looking forward to Tivoli Gardens in Denmark.

I was going to say that, when my siblings and I went to LA Disneyland we all agreed Wonderland was our favourite

I'm going to Tivoli Gardens next March. I've picked that exact place to celebrate a big birthday.

We’ve been to most of the “big” parks, apart from the ones in Orlando.
Our favourite has been Disneyland followed by Tokyo Disneyland

The Lost World of Tambun in Ipoh.   Water slides and hot pools.  So good.

My pick is Tibidabo in Barcelona. It’s at the top of a mountain and has beautiful views. The queues were short and the kids loved the rides.

I’ve only ever been to a theme park as a child or with the kids. There’s no way I’d go otherwise.

I haven’t been to many but I loved Legoland, we also stayed at the hotel for a night.  They have a disco elevator!

I haven’t been to many, but Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen was fabulous. We went in spring and the gardens alone were beautiful. We only went on rides suitable for a 2 year old :lol:

I was disappointed by the actual park and hotel but the elevator was fun, we went to the one in Malaysia.

I have been to quite a few.

Favourite would have to be DisneySea in Tokyo.

I loved Universal Studios in California. It was way better than the one in Florida. We absolutely hated Universal in Osaka.

Disneyland in California I found to be a bore. The second time I went (was included in a tour) some of us walked out and went shopping instead. Disneyworld in Orlando however (all parks as a collective - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, the water parks etc) is phenominal. Just amazing.

There was a rollercoaster park I went to in Ohio. The name escapes me but it was really really good.

We have done some parks in the UK but they don't really rate a mention, nor do any that we have here. Our parks are tired looking and ordinary. On any one day you go and at least a few rides aren't even running. What must international visitors think.

We took the kids to LA Disneyland two years ago - it was crazy and I was a bit overwhelmed. California Park however .... we LIVED there for close to three days, especially A Bugs Life and Cars. Nothing more magic than listening to "Life could be a dream" as the lights come on at twilight in the actual street from the movie.
Recently visited Gold Coast theme parks - never again. We've been spoilt. We SHOULD be ashamed, they are really not good. And the way they treat kids with a disability here is appalling compared to Disney.

Have you been to EuroDisney? Trying to decide between these two for our trip and not sure which one would suit us better...

Us too! We stayed 2 nights in Malaysia, we had the best time. The hotel was amazing, such a wonderful emmersive experience. We loved the restaurants with the Lego themed food. The kids loved all the rides and displays, and the water park was so fun. We got an air conditioned cabana to escape the heat. They still talk about it! We are going to the one in La next year, they’ll be so excited!

I’ve been to Disneyland Paris and Disneyland in California. I preferred Europa-Park. Disneyland Paris is right next to a movie world place which we also went to. Neither park would disappoint.

I’m trying to find a theme park in Amsterdam hence this question.
