Hi readers. I’m back from what’s likely my longest hiatus in 5+ years. It was an unplanned one created by the Thanksgiving holiday, work, Theme Park Geekly, and my usual off-season plotting and scheming of the next project. I hope that you checked out last week’s partly Thanksgiving-themed edition of Geekly. It includes this great image (pictured to the left) created by a theme park blogger in Spain who’s site is: BloggerCoaster.com . If you use Google Chrome for your browser, and you should, then you’ll get an option when you visit the site asking you to translate it to English. It’s a good blog. Check it out.
I hope that you’ve listened to The Seasoned Pros List Show by now. It’s been available via a player in the sidebar on this site and on Geekly. I had a lot of fun debating and defending my favorite steel coasters with Robb Alvey (ThemeParkReview), Doug Barnes (Season Pass Podcast), and Arthur Levine (The About.com – Theme Parks Guide).
New content on The Coaster Critic’s Blog will come much less frequently these days, but I’ll shoot for at least two fresh posts per week. To keep the off-season interesting you can also visit my other sites. I’m hoping to publish Theme Park Geekly’s Issue #4 of 10 mid-December. And of course, you can submit and find links to just about anything at Theme Park Hype. Lastly, if you’re itching to know the very latest happenings in the theme park world, visit Theme Park Syndicate. It’s home page is packed with the very latest stories from leading theme park sites like ScreamScape, CoasterBuzz, NewsPlusNotes, and more!
Also, feel free to submit a (You)Report if there’s some news that you’re itching for me to post and discuss. That’s a new feature that worked out pretty well this year.
