Adventureland Named Top Amusement Park

Adventureland Named Top Amusement Park

Every year, my wife and I make it a point to take our girls to Adventureland¬†as many times as we can during the summer. What a joy! Nothing’s better than grabbing a corn dog while strolling through the park on summer day in Iowa. Added bonus: Watching someone else get soaked on the Raging River (darn thing gets me every time!).

The best part: It’s ours!

I was so excited to see this today in my email. Wow.

“Adventureland Park has been named a Top 10 Amusement Park in the United States by American Mensa, the U.S. chapter of Mensa International. The Altoona park was named fourth in the study, topped only by Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood.”

Topped only by Disney and Universal Studios? That’s pretty great.

Get there this summer. Opening day is April 26, with Adventure Bay water park opening May 24, 2014.
