From $40 Million Thrill Rides to Glowing Cotton Candy

This top list of amusement park innovations shows that you're never too young for a little fun. And here, the definition of fun is wide-ranging. Say you're a construction worker by day, and want to spend your weekend in the same zone, there's a theme park there for your pleasure (or pain).

The majority of these amusement park innovations actually aren't centered around children. At the same time, however, much of these ideas do revolve what everyone needs to do more: play.

Drug lord theme parks, glowing cotton candy, LED amusement parks and rundown park photography are just a few of the cooler than cool things featured. Mind-blowing (perhaps literally?) roller coasters or hardcore gamer re-enactments -- the choice is yours.

Plan your next vacation around one of these and you'll be itching to get back. Stats for 100 Amusement Park Innovations Trending: Older & Warm
