Do you need budget-friendly inspiration for your next family travel to an amusement park? FamilyDestinationsGuide.com recently conducted a study to determine family amusement parks around the country with the best value.


The study compared the price of hotels; tickets; foodp; reusable, branded water bottles; and transportation to determine which parks offer the best value. Pricing was based on a family of two adults and two children under the age of 9.


Of the parks in the study, King’s Island ranked as the least expensive for a family of four, with an average daily spend of $368.20. The park had the lowest daily food spend and lowest average cost for park tickets.


Some of the most expensive parks include Discovery Cove, Knott’s Berry Farm and Dollywood.


Top 10 best value family amusement parks:


  1. King’s Island (Mason, Ohio)
  2. Silver Dollar City (Stone County, Missouri)
  3. Cedar Point (Sandusky, Ohio)
  4. Walt Disney World Resort, all park access (Orlando, Florida)
  5. Universal Studios (Orlando, Florida)
  6. Universal’s Islands of Adventure (Orlando, Florida)
  7. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (Tampa, Florida)
  8. Six Flags Magic Mountain (Valencia, California)
  9. Hersheypark (Hershey, Pennsylvania)
