A day at an amusement park or theme park has been a cherished moment of the Original Vacation since it began. Families spend days floating from ride to ride at Six Flags Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor and kids love the enchantment and wonder of the Magic Forest. Groups and couples alike choose theme parks celebrating fun and adventure to add some flair to their vacation. This is what summer is all about.

The best amusement park and theme park destination in NY

From your classic amusement parks with rousing rides and spellbinding entertainment to offbeat and unconventional theme parks, there is a park that will thrill even the pickiest traveler. Roamers walk the expansive amusement parks from open to close, riding historic coasters like the Comet or sitting in on comedy acts at the Great Escape. Blaze down extreme water slides or cool off and relax on the Lazy River in Hurricane Harbor or at an indoor water park. Some folks prefer the distinct experience of theme parks. In the Lake George Area, thrill seekers can climb through the trees at Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course, or zip 3,700 feet down a mountain at Eagle Flyer Zip Line.

For a more relaxing theme park visit, hop on a horse and hit travel Adirondack trails at a local dude ranch or roller skate and do other kid's activities for hours with the little ones at the Fun Spot. It doesn’t matter which amusement park or theme park you check out, but no Lake George Area excursion is complete without a day at one of these top attractions.
