Great Places with Rides, But No Roller Coasters

Postby Jackdude101 » Mon Feb 22, 2016 6:13 pm

This topic may turn out to be a wall of posts stating "Epcot," but whatever. Also, it doesn't have to be a theme park. It can be a city park, museum, mall, you name it. It just has to have at least one ride or attraction commonly found in a theme park or an amusement park.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

I quite like the Huntsville Space Center. Visited it a few times as a kid, and really want to go back. It has a motion simulator, an outdoor Space Shot, a Gravitron, and I think a 5D theater, along with a plethora of interactive exhibits and the iMAX theaters.

I'll push this past rides as well - I absolutely adore the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. The City Museum is definitely on my list.

I was planning to go there while visiting a family friend who lives in St. Louis but she died before we could make the trip. :cry:
Life is like a roller coaster- it has its ups, its downs, its heartline rolls, its batwings, its immelmanns, its corkscrews, is pretzel loops, its..... never mind.

Zero Gravity Thrill Park in Tx has a SCAD tower. Terror-dactyl at Cave of the Winds in Colorado. Moses Mabhida stadium jump in S.Africa.

Heritage Park in Calgary has a vintage midway setup with one of only two operating Caterpillar rides left in the world.

Great thread!

I visited back in 2012 when I was on tour with a show. We had a weekend in Huntsville and decided it'd be way more fun than sitting in the hotel or wandering the mall. It's not as cool as Cape Canaveral and it sure has its share of cheese but it's still a fun way to waste a day. The exhibits are incredible and the movies are excellent, as well. On the amusement side of things, though, it was pretty weak aside from the space shot. Being launched directly next to an actual Saturn V rocket is pretty kickass.

my exact feelings on it too - especially the space shot!

(my Ex lived in Huntsville, and i went to visit there and we spend the day, and then went to see Episode 1 in IMAX with the 501st in attendance there).
