Inspiring - Thank you so much!
Thank you John so much for writing this inspirational book! I am now 13 years old and for many years I have dreamed of one day becoming a designer of theming for ride and roller coasters, this book has really given me an insight of the theme park industry, and just generally entertained me, as I have always looked up to you as a roller coaster legend for designing my favourite (not just rides) but experiences at Alton Towers!
I am also very happy that your dream of a woodie has become a reality at Alton Towers. It is really nice to be hearing this in 2019 when the Wicker Man has been so successful.
Tomorrow I am visiting Alton Towers again, and I will be thinking of this the whole time whilst being sent up dive loops and cobra rolls and then hurled through corkscrews and helixes 😊
Truly, thank you!!!!!
