I am extremely excited to officially announce Kings Island: A Ride Through Time, authored by yours truly! This will be the first book ever written about the history of Kings Island! It will be release

I can’t wait for everyone to read Kings Island: A Ride Through Time in spring 2021, when it will be published by Rivershore Creative! The book is moving full-steam ahead once again now that I have a c

I’ve heard back from the publisher that the book will be a September release.

Just got my email yesterday saying the book was shipped,  can't wait!   I wonder how does this compare to other amusement and theme park books out there,  like the one's for Carowinds and Kings Dominions?   I listened to the podcast about the book and Evan said CP has one that ends in the 60's,  is that the only one for CP?

I would personally recommend Always Cedar Point by H. John Hildebrandt. It's an excellent memoir covering the author's career: 1974-2013. The Dick Kinzel biography is good as well, and covers his career at Cedar Point and Cedar Fair (1972-2012).

I was supposed to receive my copy on the 5th then it said it would arrive on the 9th but didn't. It said it was still in transit. The latest update today said its on its in Cincinnati and should be here tomorrow finally. This has been frustrating but I'm just really excited to get this book.

I have caved and ordered the book as well via Amazon. It should be here by the 19th according to my tracking. I am excited to read it, and add to my small-but-growing amusement park book collection that I have started (I have The Beast 2 by R.L. Stine and Always Cedar Point by John Hildebrandt already- so this book will be #3...)

Mine arrived in Indianapolis on a Sunday, and did not hit my house until Wednesday. I don't know what they were doing with it since the hub is about 5 miles from my house. How packages get to their destination makes no sense sometimes.

That is weird. I live in the Dayton, Ohio area and even though it said it arrived in Cincinnati I still didn't get it today. Usually when something arrives in Cincy I get it the next day.

I picked up a copy at the Emporium yesterday in the park.  I don't normally like to read books but this will be a good read. I skimmed through the pages and looks like lots of good details in there. I'll start reading it after this weekend when I get home from my trip.
