Forget Disney: 6 Amusing Theme Park Alternatives To Avoid Blowing Your Travel Budget

While Disney World is undoubtedly the happiest place on Earth, it can also be one of the most expensive. A family of four can easily spend around $4,000 for a three-day trip.

If you’re looking for an equally fun and entertaining theme park experience that won’t break the bank, these 6 alternatives are definitely worth considering!

These rides are not only named after chocolate (Cocoa Cruiser, Candymonium, and the Reese Cupfusion), but they’re also a whole lot of fun for the whole family. This chocolate-related park is also home to a water park, zoo, and a bunch of dining options.

There’s also a waterpark attached to Kings Island (Soak City) for those members of your family who would prefer to cool off in a lazy river than ride a rollercoaster. You can also enjoy beautiful views of the park from the Eiffel Tower (a one-third-scale replica).
