I bought the book together with the on-line course from Mr. Steve Alcorn. Although the title is a bit misleading (it's more about attraction design than theme park design), it is still an interesting read for anybody who would like to find out more about the processes behind attraction development. It is becoming slightly outdated (as any technical book), but as it is written from personal perspective and with humour, I can still recommend it.

A very well written, insightful look into the world of themed attraction design. It doesn't break into deep technical detail but does offer enough information for the reader to base their further research on. This 'real world' look at the world of people who work behind the scenes is written in both a honest & humours way and proves to be a totally compelling read.

Perfection! It's fantastic, and as a 13 year old budding designer, this book has just giving meaning to the countless piles of ride plans sitting on my desk. I can't put what the book means to me in words, and I don't know whether Mr. Alcorn reads these comments. But thank you, sincerely, for igniting my dreams. :)

Covers many aspects but only very superficially, not enough detail to be very interesting.

I was considering getting this book but having previewed it, there doesn't appear to be any pictures or diagrams, it's just plain text.
I'm sure its a very interesting book, but when the title says, 'Theme park Design' I would have expected at least some pictures or diagrams to bring the text to life.
