The Coaster Critic Joins Gadling + Recent Theme Park News

Coaster Critic Updates Theme Park News

vekoma-chance-morgan-dive-pretzel-roller-coasterRecently, I became a blogger at AOL’s popular travel blog, Gadling. I hope to add more general theme park and roller coaster news to the site’s already very rich content.

Because Gadling has such a wide audience the posts there may be a little more general while my posts here will be a bit more for the enthusiasts. For example, I’ll probably save the geeking out about Texas Giant’s crazy turn and Voyage’s timberliners for the blog. And, although I will be busy with several site redesigns and launches for friends and family this winter, I’ll definitely still be active here on the blog.

My last post was about Orlando Thrill Park’s 14 announced rides. LATimes Funland Blog has gallery with pictures of similar rides.

Here are more of my recent posts:
North Korean Theme Parks: Communism Meets Amusement Park Fun
Canobie Lake Adds Untamed
Gravity Group-designed Wooden Warrior coming to Quassy
Six Flags New England’s Theme Wild Mouse Coaster for 2011
World’s Fastest Coaster – Formula Rossa In Action – Video

See all of my posts on Gadling including my introductory Q&A.
Here’s the URL for my Gadling RSS feed.

It’s a huge opportunity for me, but as I said, The Coaster Critic’s Blog will continue on. And, even get an upgrade within the next month or so in the way of my biggest redesign yet.

Again, if you’re looking for the very latest in theme park news there’s no site that has more than Theme Park Syndicate. TPS is constantly updated with the latest theme park news from the largest and most popular theme park websites on the web. Check out Theme Park Syndicate!
