If you are reading this, you are not a casual Theme Park visitor. You are a fan. Parks consume your vacation time and you spend time on line looking to learn more, see more and share more.
Welcome brothers and sisters, you are in great company.
But I am curious to know if you can pinpoint the moment when you knew that the Theme/Amusement park experience was something more to you than a casual way to spend a day.
For me it was family visits to Six Flags over Georgia. I loved every thing about it - the sound of the anti-rollbacks on the Dahlonega Mine Train, the nervous thrill in my stomach going over the top of the big drop on the Log Jamboree, the look of everything at night (It's A Different Park After Dark!), the long lost taste of a Cherry-Berry, even the smell of the hot slurry coat used to resurface the park's walkways...I still stop and breath deeply around newly paved parking lots.
My parent's quickly learned that they couldn't tell me about our any upcoming trips to the park because I'd drive them crazy over the weeks leading up to the trip asking
"How much longer?"
So, when did you know that you were more than a casual fan? How many of you, like me, eventually turned your for visits into a career?
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
