Biography: Having grown up in the Amusement Park Industry, rides and midways get me going like nothing else. I grew up at Americana Amusement Park (formerly LeSourdesville Lake) from the time I was born until 1983. I even learned how to play base/T-ball in the back land of the park. ACE members remember this park for the SCREECHIN EAGLE wooden coaster.

Spent one summer, when I was in elementary school, at Bensons Animal Kingdom in New Hampshire. Ever since then, Ive been to more parks then I can count.

Recently, Ive taken a job with my fathers advertising agency which specializes in Amusement Parks and the Amusement Industry. Although I have an attachment, professionally and personally, to many of the parks listed here, I promise to keep my opinions unbiased and honest. Im not afraid to say a ride disappointed (like Buzz Lightyear)...

Lets have some fun ...
