I wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year. And one filled with lots of theme park visits. "But which parks should I visit," you say? Funny you should ask. As I do every year at this time, I just published About.com's annual Ride Guide.
It's chock full of all the new developments at amusement parks and theme parks throughout North America. Peruse it now to find out what will be happening at parks near you as well as at parks to which you may want to travel. Then you can dream about the fun that awaits later in the year to sustain you as we slog through the off season.
There will be wooden coasters that will perform especially funky maneuvers, lots of dinosaurs, some wild-sounding new shows, simulated penguins, rides that will allegedly make you scream at the sky, and a whole bunch more. Read all about in the Ride Guide to find out what's new at theme parks in 2013.
