Theme Park Insider is On the Air in Australia

December 20, 2014, 11:56 AM · If any of our Australian readers were listening to the radio early Saturday morning, I hope that you heard me on the air with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's "Overnights" show, talking about theme parks. And if you missed the show, it's available online for you to hear, right now.

Justice League at Warner Bros. Movie World
None of Australia's theme parks ranks among the world's most-visited, but we did give a shout-out to Warner Bros. Movie World for its Justice League ride, a preview of what's coming to the U.S. Six Flags parks next summer.

We talked about what makes theme parks so appealing, the difference (if there is one!) between "theme" and "amusement" parks, and how parks around the world have changed over the years. We took some calls from listeners, too. ABC Radio's got the episode available for download, streaming and as a podcast, so I hope you'll take an hour sometime during this holiday week to give it a listen.
