The Amusement Parkives on Facebook

Did you know The Amusement Parkives has a Facebook page? I know this will get shared directly to the page itself, so if you’re seeing this through the page, then yes, you certainly know about it!

But for others, I wanted to share that the Facebook page has been around for a little over a year, and I do share some content there that I don’t normally share on the website here.

Below are several examples of some content you might be missing if you’re not following (by following the page or giving the page a like) The Amusement Parkives on Facebook. This includes an upcoming book to be published about Pittsburg’s Luna Park, The Dark Ride Project, Bushkill Park, Conneaut Lake Park, and The Wild One turned 100.

Be sure to head over to The Amusement Parkives Facebook page for more content that can be seen through connections on Facebook!

Update | March 10, 2017

Hello everybody! I wanted to do a brief update post since it’s been quiet this week. I’ve been working on the Universal Mobility articles and I will be publishing them next week. I’ve got a bunch of articles that I’m working on so I decided to push the UMI articles to next week so I could focus a little more research and writing.

So look for more UMI articles next week. After I’ve finished the UMI series, I have a few Hersheypark related articles which I’ll be posting.

I also plan to write more about transportation systems in the future. I will be writing about Von Roll and Westinghouse, for example.

Until next time, thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Update | Monorail systems

Over the next few weeks I will be publishing articles about the manufacturers and designers of Monorail systems that have operated at amusement parks, zoos, world’s fairs, et cetera. I will be starting out with focusing on the Monorail at Hersheypark and the manufacturer and designer of that system. I will branch out to other companies beyond that, as well.

I wanted to take a moment to dedicate these articles to Kim A Pedersen, founder of The Monorail Society, who passed away on January 24. He had just published a book on monorail systems titled Monorails: Trains of the Future – Now Arriving. He will undoubtedly be missed in the community. I wish nothing but the best for his friends and family during these tough times.
