Best Amusement Parks and Water Parks 2014

Ready for a heart-pounding ride on a death-defying roller coaster? Or is an inner tube float around a lazy river more your speed? Maybe a fun outing for your family includes chocolate tasting or listening to country music? Whatever thrills you seek, there's an amusement park or water park perfect for you and your family.
