More About the Author

Nick Sim is the owner and editor of ThemeParkTourist.com, the web's leading source of news, reviews and discounts for theme parks all over the world. After starting the site as a hobby with his wife Natalie in 2009, he has developed it to the point that running it is now his full-time job.

Writing about theme parks every day has given Nick a unique insight into the industry, which he aims to bring to his books. The first of these, "Tales from the Towers", was published in October 2013 and is a detailed look at the fascinating story behind Britain's most popular theme park, Alton Towers. The second, "Universal Orlando: The Unofficial Story" is due to be released on Kindle in December 2013.

A fantastic look a universal Orlando with the problems it faced and success it's gained. A great read for a bit of nostalgia. If you have any interest it theme parks (especially in Orlando) give this a go.

I have always known all there is to know about Disney, but never shown the same passion and interest in Universal. However, this book changed by opinion of the park and really excited me about its future. Well written and researched, this is a professional analysis of the parks history and future. Some books claim to tell you unknown facts about places that you never knew before, this one simply delivers a great read! I say keep them coming Nick!
Hidden secret: Count how many times the word 'canabalised' appears in this book!

Format: Paperback
Nick Sim has already proven to be a hit with UK theme park fans with his first book 'Tales from the Towers'. Now, his latest release, 'Universal Orlando: The Unofficial Story' is proving to be a must read for US fans too; adopting a similar informative and entertaining style. For anybody who is a fan of one of the most popular theme park resorts in the world, this is a must read.

Concise and well written, the book takes readers back to the humble beginnings as a theme park resort, to the disastrous opening day in 1990, right up until present day as Universal Orlando gears up to open their major expansion project The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley in summer 2014. A great, solid and enjoyable read from start to finish.
