I have a wide variety of interests, from sports to politics, music to Star Trek. I write about the history of amusement parks on my website, The Amusement Parkives, which I founded in 2016.

  1. Hi Harry,

    I hope by now you’ve shaved your beard and mustache! I first noticed you on YouTube for your brochure videos… Might I add please take your time when filming…this will allow me the viewer to see it all including zooming into to the various words of admission prices and the pictures featured! However I think you got a great voice for commentary! Keep up the good work! For 2018… I think you should do a walk thru tour of HersheyPark for us first time 2018 season pass holders like me! Since having to wait another two months til March 30th I thought you could refer to the park brochure map an do a comparison from map to the actual view of park by referencing to the visual spot on video as to the map! Looking forward to more YouTube videos!
