Cedar Point named best amusement park: Five theme park winners
2. Best Waterpark: Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort, New Braunfels, Texas
Built along the Cormal River, Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort – whose name translates loosely into "slippery road" in German – has won Amusement Today's Best Waterpark award every year since 1998. Since opening their first park in 1979, Schlitterbahn has opened three more parks in Texas and another in Kansas.
