New Amusement Park Apps

As if I don't already spend enough time playing on my iPhone, more and more parks continue to release free apps for us to enjoy.

In the past few weeks I've seen four new ones: Holiday World, Darien Lake, Elitch Gardens, and Hershey Park. All four of them were free to download, and provide lots of information about their respective parks.

There's all sorts of neat details in them, too, for instance Hershey Park has great statistics about all the rides and attractions. They even have the manufacturer listed for non-coaster rides: the park's Monorail has two trains, each with 6 cars, rages from 12 to 35 feet above the ground, travels at 12 mph, opened in 1969 and was built by Universal Mobility! How's that for detailed information.

Similar fun can be had with each of the park's apps, I highly suggest them for any iPhone user.
