New maps, directions and reader photos on TPI

Some mid-week housekeeping, here on TPI:

I wanted to bring your attention to an improved feature on our theme park ratings and reviews index page. It's an embedded Google Map of the biggest U.S. theme and amusement parks we cover here on Theme Park Insider.

You can zoom in, click on the "push-pins" and get custom driving directions to the theme park of your choice. The pop-ups also link back to TPI's review page for each park.

For an extra treat, click on the "Sat" or "Hyb" buttons on the map, and enjoy satellite, aerial views of your favorite theme parks, right here on TPI.

Then, when you've had your fill of looking at theme parks (from above, at least), you now can look at your fellow Theme Park Insider readers. Log in, and click to the "My Profile Page" link you will find on the upper left side of the page, under the TPI logo. There you will find a link (on the right side of your profile page) where you now can upload a picture. (Here's my example.)

???? no map to be seen. But Google Maps decided to stop working for me around the first of July; this might be why. (It worked fine before then.) I'm sure it's cool though :)

Soon Anthony, but both of us have been very busy. In fact, this is one of our buisiest holidays ever.

Also, Adrian and myself are only half finished with our article and we still need to edit it because we can't put pictures up.

Oh and there's alot of pictures to choose from to post on my profile!
