    Parks with the best line-ups

    This is a thread that might help people planning trips. As a newcomer to the coaster enthusiast community, it feels quite important to me. Which parks have the best roller-coaster line-ups ? The question is different that "which park is the best" as it focuses only on roller-coasters, with no...
