November 25, 2013 - Today I released some updated pictures from parks that were in the Gallery from previous years.  I added lots of new pictures from SeaWorld San Antonio, Michigan's Adventure, and Worlds of Fun.  In addition to photographing (and riding, of course!) the new coasters, I also took a lot of new pictures... They are so much better than the old shots I had from a decade ago!

September 1, 2013 - What an amazing summer it has been!  I visited 19 parks in Europe, and over a dozen in the United States.  And I still have three more parks to check out later this month!   But because I have been busy at the parks, the Gallery Updates have been behind... So today is a triple release: There are new pictures from Silver Dollar City, Knoebels, and Denmark's Tivoli Gardens!  That's a lot of diversity: a wooden coaster with two loops, a wooden bobsled that has been under construction for seven years, and the world's third oldest coaster.

July 12, 2013 - Just north of Salt Lake City, Utah is Lagoon, our newest park.  This fun little park is packed with an amazing nine roller coasters!

June 28, 2013 - Today I got to sit in on The Mike O'Meara Show broadcast.   I had a blast, and the TMOS gang said some wonderful things about!  I also got to hear over an hour of Roller Coaster-themed music as I sat in on The Robb Spewak Show... I'll post a link as soon as it is on-line.  Thanks Mark, Robb, and Oscar for an amazing day!

May 7, 2013 - Australia's Dreamworld is the latest park in the Gallery.  In addition to some amazing animal exhibits and displays, the park is home to the record-setting Tower of Terror II roller coaster.  Jeff and I discuss this ride in Episode #1302 of the Podcast... which also has a photography tip when using a zoom lens, talk about Intamin launched coasters, and quandary about what park to visit next..

February 10, 2013 - Two updates today... First is a ton of new pictures from Six Flags Over Texas.  Check out the changes to the New Texas Giant!  Second is a podcast talking about wooden coasters with loops.  Episode 1301 of the Podcast covers Son of Beast, Hades 360, Iron Rattler, Outlaw Run, and more.
