The autobiography of the man who brought the theme park concept to Britain, and created some of the world's most thrilling rides and attractions.

He talks about his early beginnings in the theatre, circus and magical cabaret, his time working on some of the most incredible special effects in the James Bond films (including the famous bus crash scene in Live and Let Die), and how he became associated with Madame Tussauds, the world's most famous wax museum. This led to the development of Chessington World of Adventures, then Alton Towers.

The book answers many questions about how enormous theme park rides are conceived and developed, and the fascinating stories behind them, including his most famous ride, "NEMESIS" at Alton Towers.
