This is not a theme park news site. Of course I write about theme park news stories from time to time, but that’s not the goal of The Coaster Critic’s Blog, by design and by necessity.
In 2011, the salary for a roller coaster critic isn’t enough to support myself let alone my family. So, I’ve got a full-time day job and when I’m home I love spending time with my family. In addition, my vision for the site has always been: “One Coaster Enthusiasts Opinions & Experiences“. At times in the past I’ve raced to be first, or one of the first with breaking news, but I don’t think that is this site’s strength. There are a number of sites that do that really well. They either have a staff of people or one person updating the site full-time.

While the goal of The Coaster Critic’s Blog will never be to just BE FIRST, I realize that the site has a community of visitors that at times would like to discuss the latest news or even news that’s not even breaking anymore. So, I’m rolling out an idea that I had a few months ago. From now on you’ll be able to submit news stories that I’m calling Theme Park (You)Reports. I’ll revise it, if needed, and publish it as soon as possible if it’s post-worthy.
For breaking news of all kinds I created Theme Park Syndicate. It’s constantly updated with theme park news, podcasts, videos, and blog posts from around the Web. I know that there’s currently a regular following that visits the site on a daily basis.
