What good experiences have you had with execs of a park?
I once contacted Jeff Siebert over at PKI about the website being left unfinished for 2 years. He responded in a long email, in which in took the time to explain some of the complications. I always appreciated the time that he took to do that.
I've also received a two page letter from Marty Sklar, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney Imagineering. He addressed some of my concerns about the Carousel of Progress being removed. He's a class act all the way.
How about everyone else? (I'm really interested in some Holiday World stories, seeing as I've heard nothing but good things about the folks over there.)

Well, I've talked to Paula Werne , the PR Director over at Holiday World, through e-mail many times. She types long and helpful e-mails, and it is very nice about it. Will Koch is a great guy too. If you ever see him in person, he'll talk to you just like you're one of his best friends.

PR people are generally nice, but that's what they do for a living. I'm not sure I'd call them "execs."
The only executive I've met from a park is Cedar Fair chief Dick Kinzel (obviously, since we interviewed him for this site). He knew my name after the first introduction, and will always say hi when I see him. He's a good guy and knows his business.
I've met various manufacturing chiefs as well from CCI, Setpoint, B&M, etc. They're all classy people, and very modest about what they do.
