Paul Ruben (Enthusiast) has passed away


Recommended Posts

Paul Ruben has passed away at 84.  The name may ring a bell to some, not to others.

Many of us, ummm "long time" coaster enthusiasts knew (or knew of) Mr Rubens.  He did a lot within the industry, and was essentially many park's go-to guy for quotes and opinions on rides and attractions.

I would often come across him at parks, media days etc.  (including several of his visits to KI and many ACE events.)

Saddened by this news. I met Paul in 1981. We did a couple of TV shows together talking about roller coasters in the 1980's and I enjoyed working with him on stories he was writing for industry publications. The last time I saw him was about a year ago when he visited Kings Island to ride Orion. He'll be missed by many.
