Fuji-Q Highland – Japan

If you like quiet walks in the park and slow drives down sleepy streets, then Fuji-Q Highland amusement park won’t be for you.

Come on an empty stomach.

Six Flags – Los Angeles, California

With 18 locations across North America, Six Flags is one of the most popular amusement park chains in the world. If you’re looking to sample some of the best rides, then head to Los Angeles where you can strap in to the flying simulator roller coaster “Tatsu” – you’ll be facing the ground from 17 stories in the air, flipping, spinning and soaring into pretzel loops and chilling drops. Make sure you’re ready though, because Tatsu is the fastest, tallest and longest flying coaster in the world – don’t wimp out!

Alton Towers, United Kingdom

Looking for something different? Head to Alton Towers, UK and step into one of the many rides and themed adventure areas it has to offer. Water parks, golf, roller coasters and even spas offer something for everyone; however, the more adventurous guest will step into the Tree Top Quest, a ropes course suspended high above the ground. Walk through the tree tops while working your way through the challenging obstacles that line your path. Don’t look down!
