Somewhere up in heaven, there is an amusement park. In this park there are no OTSRs on the roller coasters, everyone has a fair chance at winning the games on the midway, and all the food is free. Harry Traver, Anton Schwartzkopf and John Allen design the coasters. Will Koch Sr. is the General Manager, but he really doesn't have to do much, because the park pretty much runs itself. You can ride the tumblebug, the whip, and the old Conneaut lake rockets all day, for free, without getting the least bit sick. In this park is a spacial place for those whose lives were dedicated to helping others have a good time. Richard is there to great them all...
