Description - Imagineering an American Dreamscape: Genesis, Evolution, and Redemption of the Regional Theme Park by Barry R Hill

Finally, the story of America's regional theme parks. Everybody knows pretty much everything about Disneyland-how it got started, how the Imagineers do their thing, and so on. But nobody ever talks about the parks that most of us across the country enjoy far more often. Regional theme parks, different from amusement parks, owe their existence to the magical land Walt built in Anaheim. There were a few false starts, but in 1961 Angus Wynne opened Six Flags Over Texas, triggering a tidal wave of Disneyland-lites over the next twenty years. Imagineering an American Dreamscape tells the story of the regionals and the strong-willed individuals behind them-where they came from, how they got started, and how they've changed over the decades. Some of the stories you may have heard. Most you probably haven't, and it's a fascinating tale to tell. Sit back and enjoy the long journey from the grand world expositions of yesteryear to the parks you grew up to love and cherish.
