If you’re chasing adrenaline and big thrills, but you’ve also got the little ones tagging along on your holiday, then there is only one way to combine the two. And that is through theme parks.  There is no feeling comparable to plummeting towards the ground whilst knowing you’re secured in the ride. The best thing about incorporating theme parks into your family vacation is that there really is something for everyone, and no matter what corner of the world you’re in, you can bet there’s a fun theme park just waiting for you to step inside.

If you’re on a mission to cross the best theme parks off your list, you’ll need to know where to go! Luckily for you, we have the answers. In fact, we’ve compiled a bucket list of theme parks just for you.

Disney World - Orlando, USA

If you’re wanting the best of the best in terms of global theme parks but not wanting to leave the country, you’re in luck. America is home to one of the best - Disney World.   Boasting as the happiest place on earth, this is the world-renowned home of magic and all things Disney, just like its sister park of Disneyland in California. The main point of attraction for Disney World is the storytelling and the escape it provides into these fantasy worlds. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re traveling with kids and want to make it a trip to remember! Just remember that Disney World is a whole lot larger than Disneyland so you could easily spend a week there visiting and still not see everything.

Universal Studios - Hollywood, USA

A close second to the Disney parks is Universal Studios. If action is what you’re chasing, then Universal is the place to go. With a movie studio, scary theme park rides, shops, cinemas and 3D experiences, there really is more than enough to do here. A highlight of universal studios is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, where muggles like yourself can truly experience the wonder and awe of the magical world.

Wet’n’Wild and Dreamworld - Gold Coast, Australia

If you ever find yourself Down Under, then you’ve hit the jackpot. Located on the sunny Gold Coast is a hub of theme parks; Wet’n’Wild, Dreamworld, Movie World and Sea World. It depends what you’re after as to which you’d most likely prefer. Wet’n’Wild  is the perfect way to cool down in the Australian summer, with every ride centered around a combination of water and thrills.
