About the Author

I’m Jonathan, a roller coaster lover since my first trip to Dollywood at age eight. Ever since my first ride on Tennessee Tornado, I have been on a constant quest to fulfill my cravings for thrill. As a resident of Tennessee, I don’t have many amusement parks to choose from, but I squeeze a park visit into my travel whenever I can.

I started Theme Park Press in April 2015 as a way to share my adventures and spread the news of the roller coaster industry. In May 2017, I relaunched the site with a more professional look but with a continued goal: to share my take on the latest happenings of the amusement world.

My favorite roller coaster is Fury 325 at Carowinds. Its first drop plunges 320 feet at 81 degrees, leaving riders weightless for an eternity before sending them into the rest of the course. You can read my full review for Fury 325 here.
