    Hard Rock Park Employees “Kicked Ass”!

    Those of you who are fans of Theme Park University know my deep rooted love for the former Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was revolutionary, edgy, sexy and, in some ways, ahead of its time. While I have written many articles on the origins, details and demise of the park, one […]

    Full Bunny Contact In NYC Possibly Best Easter Event Ever

    Holiday traditions are a beautiful thing. Each year, most of us repeat the same motions on holidays because if we don’t hold on to what we have done in the past, then we lose it. For me, I always used to play touch football on Thanksgiving with my cousins, open one present on Christmas Eve […]

    Does Six Flags Hate Veterans?

    I recently posted a story on TPU’s Facebook page about a veteran who lost his legs in Afghanistan while serving his country. Sgt.

    “Everything Is Awesome” At Legoland Florida

    After being totally charmed and captivated by the The Lego Movie (it’s as good as any Disney/Pixar film in recent years – you should see it if you have little ones or not, seriously!), I decided to take a trip down to Winter Haven, Florida where there have been numerous additions and upgrades recently to […]
