Ideally, I'd like to find someone who has worked in a theme park, or for a company producing attractions, and who has the time and writing skill to put together one column a week. The column could include interviews with people in the industry, trip reports and reviews or previews of upcoming attractions.
If you are interested, e-mail me. I'm looking for people who can write clearly, love theme parks and have enough personal experience to make informed judgments about quality. Tell me why you fit that description and what topics you'd start with in a column.
Plus, I'm looking for someone to take over production of The Blog Flume, our round-up of theme park-related news on the Web. The person writing that column should monitor sites like the Orlando Sentinel, Yahoo News, Screamscape and others for interesting news stories, and then post short, lively descriptions of them, with links, two to three times a week.
(And in case someone's wondering, Kevin's working on a new Vegas website for me and no longer has the time to keep up the Flume. But I don't want to see the feature die. Joe's staying, too, but I want more voices on the page.)
Pay for these tasks is not much, but I'm hoping to find a TPI enthusiast who'd be willing to do a little extra reporting work in exchange for prominence on the site and a few extra bucks a week.
