“Money” has partnered with Yelp to reveal the Ten Best Amusement Parks in the U.S. and the Queen City is the proud owner of one of those!

Kids are out for the summer and parents are able to take some time off work so that means parents need to find ways to entertain their kids. There’s nothing like an amusement park in the summer time. The rides, the lemonade, the food…cue the memories.

With that being said, there are a bunch of amusement parks across the country – but how do we separate the “babies” from the “adults?”

Thanks to “Money” and Yelps partnership, they just revealed the top ten amusement parks in the country, as well as the best rides at each attraction.
