Enjoy the thrill of seven world-class coasters as they zip through the night sky all while visiting the countries of Italy, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, and French Canada. Taste the scrumptious, mouth-watering, food specialties of each country (on your own) as well as the ethnic entertainment and shops. Annually voted "Most Beautiful Park."
