I was looking for publicly traded companies that manufactures roller coasters and came upon • Category:Roller coaster manufacturers • Manufacturers - Coasterpedia - The Roller Coaster Wiki • list of roller coaster manufacturers and discovered majority of the the companies are private. So I went on YouTube to view some documentaries of manufacturing roller coasters and ROLLER COASTER TYCOON (SERIES) simulation doesn't come as close to reality!  [more]

Back in 1987, I was fortunate to visit California during its 1980's tourism heyday. I visited many places and for this blog will be focussing on theme parks. As mentiond from My thoughts of who is the best and why?  August 13, 2015 blog I've been to Walt Disney Park The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) My favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds and remember the crowds, long lineups, hospitality, etc. I've been to Knott's Berry Farm Cedar Fair, L.P. (NYSE:FUN) and remember Peanuts characters, Ghost Town and Western Theme (enjoyed train ride with surprise fake robbery) , not crowded, short lineups, employees were lax letting me pass which I was barely tall enough to ride the Montezooma's Revenge. I've been to Universal Studios Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) its more of a studio where we rode on trains and trolleys as our tour guide gave us a tour of the studio and I enjoyed the Jaws (ride). My visit to SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE:SEAS) maybe some other time.  [more]
