Family Vacation Critic, a site owned by TripAdvisor and focused on family-friendly travel, has named its 8 best amusement parks for families who want fun for both big and small park visitors. The list includes:

As mentioned, the list isn’t necessarily intended to name the best parks for thrill-seekers (though many of these parks will make any “best of” list).

These parks have the big coasters but also substantial kiddie rides and/or water parks to make sure everyone is happy.
