About Tom: I have been a theme park nut since I was a wee child. My parents began taking me to WDW at 3 years old and I have averaged roughly 1.3 trips per year since that time. I am a thrill seeker as well, but themeing comes first. I would rather have an immersive environment with a middle of the road ride system, than have all the thrills in the world and no themeing. My home park is Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I have been a pass holder for 5 years and a platinum holder for the past 2 of those.
