Who's getting one first?
(Disclaimer: The attention ho in question is only the N.American editor. I feel for the people he works with...but they're all in Europe it seems.)

OMG what a joke. Are there acutally people that buy this?
Sunday, August 7, 2005 6:25 AM
It is marketed to Parks/FECs/etc., not enthusiasts, actually.
I just stumbled across it on Amazon.

I'd just stick with www.themeparkmagazine.com
4 issues a year for $20

That's still 5 bucks an issue.
Isn't there something cheaper out there?

^ The Intraweb.
Like any other industry, the periodicals are very expensive. Back in my college radio programming days, I remember paying somewhere around $300-400 for an annual subscription to CMJ.

Yea it's called Coasterbuzz. Cheaper, faster, more current, and you're only partially a laughing stock ...

CoasterBuzz? Nobody reads that!

Five dollars an issue is expensive? Geesh. Maybe I shouldn't tell you I used to buy EGM, EGM2(when it was still called that), Star Trek Communicator, ToyFair, Wizard, and quite a few other magazines montly at between 5-7 dollars a pop. Sometimes $10.

Haunted Attractions Magizine is only $20 per year (4 issues). Back issues are a little more.

I'm kicking myself because I haven't subscribed to these $20 a year, quarterly publications, I hear they're top notch. And $5 an issue is really a steal when it comes to such things.

Actually, I haven't paid for a trade magazine ever. If they're charging for it, they're not very good sales people.

I'll second Jeff. I work for a trade magazine for the travel industry. We're advertiser-supported and do not charge for a subscription.

Theme Park Magazine isn't really a 'Trade' publication, is it? Or are you referring to park world? Now, the movie trade mags that I used to read at the theater I worked at or the C-Store mags I used to read on break when I was bored at Sheetz were sent free.
