I love amusement parks and roller coasters, and I am blessed with at least one child who loves them too. Avery is a bit of a daredevil. She’s not quite 9 years old yet and she will ride any roller coaster that she is tall enough to get on…and she puts her hands up in the air when she’s on them! She’s such a thin little thing that I always worry she’s going to fly right out of the ride, so I wish she would at least hold on!


Canada’s Wonderland is the closest amusement park to us, and we visit every year. They have some of the coolest roller coasters I’ve ever been on, and when you’re ready to cool off you can visit the water park. Splash Works has something for all ages and it’s free with admission to the park. It’s definitely worth checking out!

Here are some of the top amusement parks in North America, along with the number of roller coasters each one has and what the approximate cost of admission is. It’s a great tool when planning your family vacations!

What is your favourite amusement park? Are there any that you have really wanted to visit but haven’t had the chance yet?
