Theme Park Insider debuts its new YouTube channel

Published: January 3, 2011 at 4:14 PM

I'm pleased to announce that we have a new YouTube channel for Theme Park Insider. It's our first "official" home on YouTube since our old YouTube group from eons ago. We'll be uploading plenty of new videos to the channel this year, so I hope that you'll subscribe to it, in addition to checking here on the TPI Blog Flume.

We've got several of our older theme park tours, on-ride videos, show videos and interviews already on the channel, if you'll follow the links on the right side of the channel page.

We're kicking off the channel today with a look at what's new in theme park attractions for 2011:

You just got a subscriber! By the way, I would like to see a name change on Cheetah Hunt, too.

I go back and forth on Cheetah Hunt. If Busch Gardens develops a strong pre-show that explains that the cheetah's doing the hunting, and you're riding along, it'll be fine the way it is.

Without a strong explanation on the ride, though, too many people will continue to interpret the name as hunting the cheetah - which is not what Busch Gardens wants to be associated with, I'm sure.

Lookin good!

As for new attractions, SFGA was supposed to get a new roller coaster, but was changed to an expansion of the popular Hurricane Harbor. It will have a brand new surf school attraction where guests can ride on man made waves.

I know its not really "theme park" material, but still pretty cool for being in Illinois.

Subscribed. Well done. The audio was a little faint but you're a natural speaker.
