Show Notes

English Composer Nick Hutson has been a long-time friend of the show. His career is on the rise! He composed much of the music currently running at Thorpe Park's Fright Nights. We'll talk to Nick about the process of creating themed environments using music. We'll also hear how he used EB and Mike's voices in many of the scarezones and the launch announcement for Stealth!

During our Quick Hits segment, the guys talk about several of this week's most interesting stories in the amusement industry, including:

  • Tidal Twister is announced at Sea World San Diego
  • Cedar Fair sounds like they are done with Virtual Reality on coasters
  • Bobbejaanland - Now Charging Admission Based On Time Spent In Park
  • Ride ops forgot to attach a rider's harness on a 500ft bridge attraction in China
  • After some interesting Live Trip Reports, we'll ask our listeners to tell us about the rides and attractions they think should be put in a coffin! (it's Halloween, a coffin...get it?)
