ATLANTA (CNN) -- Summer is the time for theme parks -- the roller coasters, cotton candy, and dazzling technical wonders. Small wonder then that theme parks are popping up on the World Wide Web.

Wonderful world of Disney

The theme park of theme parks has to be named Disney. The Disney Web site has elaborate pages for Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida -- as well as Disney Tokyo.

The site offers basic ideas of the rides and hotels at the parks, and how much they cost. There's an online ticket purchase page, and the site offers virtual tours of the parks.


Pick a park

They promise big thrills, and Busch Gardens and Sea World have The Land 4 Adventure -- a page designed to show you how to have a good time at their many parks.

With the Adventurator, you give a little information about your likes and needs, and it picks a theme park tour you'll never forget.

The page comes with simulations. prices and maps to show you how to get there.

Where no one has gone before

But for an out-of-this-world experience, Star Trek: The Experience opens at the Las Vegas Hilton this summer.

Its Web page has some sneak previews of the project and behind-the-scenes looks at construction. The park will house the Star Trek museum and a shuttle ride to the bridge of the Enterprise for the start of an adventure.

And at the end of the day, head for the Promenade of Federation outpost Deep Space Nine for a restful visit in the Ferengi Quark's bar.
