The world's most authentic roller coaster and amusement park expert!


The First Post

Welcome, everyone…to Great American Thrills!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Vertical Velocity at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom on a particularly cold winter day...

This is the jumping off point, the start of what I hope to be a fun, rewarding experience for both readers, viewers and myself.

Great American Thrills is much more than a blog…it is the result of years of visiting parks, learning everything about them, and then never being able to “squeeze the veritable sponge of theme park information” that is my brain.of things to come. If you’ve stumbled upon my little section of cyberspace, welcome.

At least twice a week (sometimes more often when parks are open) you’ll find some nce tidbits and tips here to save you and your family money at your local theme park. All the while, you’ll also learn such things as: “Why can’t I wear my sunglasses on certain rides?” “Who invented the roller coaster?” and “If there was a Mr. Disney, was there a Mr. Flags?” (No, by the way).

So just sit, back, pull down your lap bars and safety harnesses – and enjoy the ride!
