Amusement parks in Delaware usually mean a combination of go-kart racing and miniature golf. For thrill rides, try the boardwalk in Rehoboth, visit nearby parks in New Jersey or Pennsylvania or hit one of the big festivals held during the summer, including the St. Anthony's Italian Festival in Wilmington and the Delaware State Fair in Harrington.
