    I live near the Cleveland Zoo. Interstate 71 is less than 50 feet out my back window.

    That's all I have......

    Hey! I just thought of a couple.

    I have Hershey Park about 20 minutes away from me in one direction, and 20 minutes in the other, i'm smack-dab in the center of Amish Culture Land. Not so much a theme park, but it IS a huge tourist attraction... which they've come to accept and benefit from, but, seriously people, it's their fucking lifestyle. Don't stop and take pictures of the guy plowing his field. He's not doing it for your amusement. [/rant]

    Maybe, someday, pictures will come.

    I live in Cleveland too. Just a hop on a bus and I'm at the Zoo.

    Also can take a Rapid to the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Going there in 2 weeks cause my sister's school is having a concert there. It's good stuff there.

    You live pretty close to me, then. I'm about an hour away from Philly, and Hershey is about 1-2 hours away. Dorney Park is about 45 minutes away, I guess. It has Steel Force which *was* one of the tallest roller coasters for a while, and I think it still is in the top 10 for longest steel coasters.
