Cool Classic or contemporary Amusement Parks?

Which is better? I'll have to side with Classic amusement parks given that's where I went growing up. Kennywood is the park I went to most of the time. Many classic rides such as the Whip , The Jackrabbit, The Log Jammer, etc.. The park has a classic feel that makes me love it even more. Occasionally, I'd also go to Idlewild, but I never really like it. Its a park geared towards young ones and family, which I'm fine with , but since I've grown up a bit , the park isn't for me.

So which type of amusement park do you like the best?

I'd have to say classic parks are better because they come with their own history.

I've been to Kennywood too and I loved how it's basically all the original rides still there and working after so many years. It's fun and amazing to think people 100 years ago were riding these exact same rides and enjoying them like I was.

When it comes to waterparks I've been to mostly modern ones like the Schlitterbahns in Texas.
