If you are willing to go a smidge west, Cedar Point in Ohio has awesome coasters! Plus, it’s right next to one of the great lakes, so you can get some lovely lake breezes, has plenty of places to stay nearby, and the park itself is very clean with friendly staff. I’ve been there numerous times and have always had a lovely experience.

Cedar Point!  It was about an hour away from where I grew up, and I went many times.  It has some of the tallest/fastest/longest roller coasters in America.  Lots of record breakers.  If you want scary, that’s probably one of your best bets!  It’s right on the lake as well, and there’s lots of other things to do in the area.

I also vote Cedar Point.  I live about 30 minutes away from there, and it is awesome!!  And, they have an adjoining water park, a nice golf resort down the street, and even an indoor water park not too far away either.  You would NOT be bored, and a coaster enthusiast would be very happy 🙂

Yeah, you can’t beat Cedar Point. I’ve never been (I’m a scardey cat), but I’ve driven by and watched first-person view videos – the freaking videos on the internet make my heart race!

If you’re going full on east coast (like, the shore), I’d suggest Great Adventure (Six Flags) in Jackson, NJ.

Syzygy88:  Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a good option.  I also enjoyed Six Flags Over Georgia in Atlanta.  Both also have their own waterparks too.  Lots of great camping near both.

I haven’t been to Busch Gardens though it is on my list to go. 

Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey has the Kingda Ka which is the bigger version of the ride at Cedar Point.  Last I checked it was the tallest roller coaster, it was worth the long line, I went when it first opened.  I don’t know if anything bigger has been built since.

I also like Kings Dominion and Hershey Park.
