Contribute to My New Book & Photo of the Week

Coaster Critic Updates

New Theme Park Photo BookStarting this week and every week of this year, I’ll be posting my 52 favorite theme park photos. I’m no expert or even exceptional photographer, but I’ve accumulated a large collection of images from my travels. Photos will range from my favorite coaster shots to general theme park views to travel photos to quirky photos from almost ten years of theme park trips.

Each week I’ll post a new photo and give a few thoughts. Like always you’ll be able to comment on the posts. At the end of the year I’ll include the posts AND the most interesting, insightful, or amusing reader comments in my first ever book. So, you’ll be able to contribute to my new book by leaving comments on my Photo of the Week posts.

  1. I have that book. I found it highly helpful. I wish another came out. That copy is already over 4 years old. Plus, It has one of the worst coasters known to man, designed by the worst company ever. Wind Jammer by TOGO (ugh)! >:^(

    • P.S. I am Illegally Insane. Thrill rides only add to it. So give me more, or I'll be sharing a padded cell with the Joker next year.

    • I have it too. You're right, it's a good book. I just wish there was a newer edition.

      A bit off topic, but if anyone has a good coaster/theme park book to recommend let us know.

    • Me too, It's a very good book as far as coaster books go, and I like how it's more dirrected tords enthusiasts instead of the average rider, so, instead of the same old "How RollerCoasters Work" lecture, it's more like a long lists of ride reviews, wich are all written very well, if short at times.

    My absolute fave, and a must read for enthusiasts.

    What are your plans for publication, Joel? If you have any questions, or just want to talk about it, shoot me an email.

    • "The Complete History of the Roller Coaster" is also a good book, but it's mostly based on the golden age of roller coasters.
