Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Amusement parks are an integral part of American popular culture. As the focus of many family vacations, they record a quarter of a billion visits annually. This directory covers the obvious Disneyland and Six Flags attractions, while also including less famous parks as Theel Kiddyland (Kansas) and Penny Whistle Park (Texas). There are brief descriptions of the parks, hours of operation, approximate prices, and suggested lengths of visits (five hours for Dollywood, two hours for the War Memorial Amusement Park). There is also a ranking of the best roller coasters and antique wooden carousels. Parks in Canada are included as well. This competent reference work will prove useful to large public libraries.-- Harold M. Otness, Southern Oregon State Coll. Lib., Ashland
