Great listen for theme park enthusiast.
A wonderful insight into the journey of a British theme park icon. If you love your themed entertainment, it is well worth a listen to find out some of the background on how the most influential rides in the UK came to be. The fact that it is read by John Wardley himself adds a lot in my opinion, even if the recording isn't perfect. This book is a must read for UK theme park fans and I would recommend it to anyone with a passing interest in the industry. Loved it!
