Mines rather a lot shorter:

AT (1, obviously!)
Thorpe Park (2)
Efteling (3)
Blackpool PB (4)
Disneyland Paris (5)
Pleasureland Southport (6)
Camelot (7, but this rating is based on when they still had Venom and Tower of Terror)
legoland (8)
Oakwood (9)
Gullivers Warrington (Gullivers World) (10)
Gullivers Matlock Bath (Gullivers Kingdom) (11)

I'd like to be able to add Drayton Manor to that list sometime this year.

EDIT: I forgot Oakwood
There are probably more that I've forgotten as well
EDITED AGAIN to put the parks in order
EDITED YET AGAIN I forgot Legoland as well!

Mine's pretty pathetic, although I am pretty lucky to have been to Florida in my first year of being an enthusiast:

England

Alton Towers
Chessington World of Adventures
Drayton Manor
Legoland

Florida

Universal Studios
Islands of Adventure
Disney's Magic Kingdom
Disney's MGM Studios
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Disney's Epcot
Busch Gardens Tampa
Seaworld Orlando


Spain

Terra Mitica

And that's it from off the top of my head, I could've been to more but I just can't remember them.

EDIT: Wow, forgot Terra Mitica!

Edit 2: God, what am I like? Missed Legoland too!

If you don't mind, it would be cool for you peeps to edit your posts, putting brackets after each park with what your no. 1 would be going down to the bottom. For example:

Gullivers Matlock (1)
Pleasurewood Hills (2) etc.

If you have joint positions do the following:

Thorpe Park (=1)
Alton Towers (=1)

Thanks

My huge park list:

Alton Towers(=1)
Disney Land Paris, theme park and studios(=1)

I really would like to go to more parks, but as Alton is my local park that is the only place I go to, and I have only been to DLP because of school trips.

I would like to visit a lot of the major parks in the UK, when I can drive and get a job.

Also been in the car park of Paramounts Kings Island - But in true National Lampoons Vacation style beacuse we overslept in the morning driving from Cedar Point to Kings Island we never arrived until half-past two in the afternoon. That evening the park was hosting a concert featuring Raven? (I think she was in the Cosby show) and they would not let us in the park without buying a concert ticket as well ($28 + $40 park admission) so we refused and walked across the road to the multiplex to see Revenge of the Sith which had opened in the US on that day (When we left the cinema in the evening and I saw the Beasts lift hill lit up, I nearly cried like Anakin I can tell you)

World wide:
Ocean Park (Hong Kong)
Movie World (Gold Coast, Oz)

Hope to do a couple of parks in Canada in September and hopefully Japan next year.

As for favourites (based purely on great times and atmosphere)
1. Island of Adventure
2. Busch Gardens (williamsburg)
3. Port Aventura
4. Disneyland
5. Efteling
