New Rollercoaster Book
I recently purchased a book called American Coasters A Thrilling Photographic Ride. The book contains 12 chapters. Chapter 1: Cedar Point, Chapter2: Knoebles, Chapter3: Six Flags New England, #4: Carowinds, #5: Six Flags America, #6: Kennywood, #7 Busch Gardens Williamsburg, #8: Kings Island, #9: Six Flags Over Georgia, #10 Kings Dominion, #11: Dorney Park, and #12: Six Flags Great Adventure. The book also briefly shows Islands of Adventure, Worlds of Fun, Valleyfair, Busch Gardens Tampa, Six Flags Magic Mountain,Sea World Orlando, Dollywood, Six Flags St. Louis, and Holiday World.
I have read the whole book. There is some information about the parks and the rollercoasters at the parks, but the this is mainly a pictorial book. The photos in this book are incredible. I personally appreciate the book because I take a ton of photos, while visiting parks. I know the exact spot some of the photos were taken, because I photographed the same shot. The only difference is the photos in the book are a lot better quality than mine. Some photos were taken in a perspective that I never thought to photograph. My favorite photos in the book not only capture the rollercoaster, but the park atmosphere also. I
I'm super impressed with this book. Even my non enthusiast friends love this book. This book has enhanced their curiosity in our hobby. The photos are just amazing. If you want to purchase a the book, you can send a check to Thomas Crymes at 708 Thornhill Dr. in Collegeville PA 19426. The price is $28, he will sign it, and pay for the shipping. I believe Amazon will have this book in the near future for a slightly lower price. I have been in contact with the author, Thomas Crymes, and he seems to have the same passion that we do. I sent him a check on a Monday, and received the book the following Monday. So if you are lookin for a great pictorial book on rollercoasters, this is the boiok for you.
I haven't been to Six Flags New England yet and are going to Six Flags Magic Mountain late this season. Otherwise, I have been to every park in it. It sounds like the perfect thing for me. How long/big is the thing anyway?
I haven't been to SF Magic Mountain. Like you, that is the only park in the book that I haven't been to. The book measures 11 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches. It contains 175 pages, and has a hard back cover. You can also check American Coasters on Facebook. The author, Thomas Crymes checks it often. Also, if you are planning on purchasing the book include a note card with your name, address, and phone number. If you friend on Facebook, he will keep you updated with the progress of the order.
