Usually, when we think of amusement parks, our minds immediately go to Disneyland or Disneyworld. After all, they pretty much dominate the business leaving little room for other destinations. The big exception is a fascination with dangerous AF amusement parks found around the world, such as Kings Island in Ohio. But some A-List celebrities like Rihanna, Vannesa Hudgens, and the Jenners love smaller parks around the world that you may not have even heard of.

Each of the entries on this list is a destination that you still can go and visit, as opposed to the charming amusement parks that travelers can't visit anymore like Wonderland in Beijing, China. Everything from epic rollercoasters to waterparks is at your fingertips.

So, let's forget Disneyland and look at the world's best amusement parks, according to stars.
