About Michael: My wife and I (and my 4 kids!!) are life-long theme park enthusiasts who consider Busch Gardens and Kings Dominion as our home base parks. As a teenager, I worked as both a ride operator and walk-around character at Kings Dominion and loved every minute of it. In fact, there's still a strong part of me that would have loved working in a theme park for a living.
