This Pennsylvania Theme Park Gives You the Best Bang for Your Buck

A new ranking is out that reveals which theme parks give you the most bang for your buck. Let's face it: Today, a lot of theme parks are very costly. If you have a family of four, it can be expensive to go to a theme park and enjoy all that park has to offer, from the coasters to the food. But, one Pennsylvania theme park gives one of the best deals in America. The ranking, done by JeffBet, gave each theme park a score out of 10. What's more, that's based from how much great benefit visitors get for the money they spend. "This involved scaling the online ticket price and parking costs against the number of attractions, visitor ratings, and the park’s typical opening hours," JeffBet states. Also, they add, "Each theme park’s ticket prices and parking costs were scaled against the total number of attractions, ratings, and typical opening hours." Let's look at some of the worst, first. Universal Studios Florida and Disney California Adventure Park came up as overpriced in the study. Hence, not too cool, Mickey Mouse.
