Ripley Publishing has launched a new book series that pays homage to the creative pioneers who have made the world’s amusement parks, theme parks, amusement rides and waterparks what they are today. 

There have been hundreds of books written on individual parks, on individual rides and attractions and on the amusement business as a whole, but few have been written specifically about the people who dedicated their lives to creating the industry. 

Presented here are the most detailed and comprehensive biographies ever written about 10 men who were instrumental in shaping the 20th century fun park landscape: George Millay; Carl Hughes; Bo Kinntorph; Marty Sklar; Harrison "Buzz" Price; Dr Roberto Ortiz; John Graff; Harold Chance; Ron Toomer; Jeff Henry. Written in a casual, easy to read style, the passion of these pioneers beautifully shines through.
