He also served as the executive producer of STAR TREK: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, a $70-million location-based entertainment collaboration between Paramount Parks and Hilton Hotels.

nice to see a person that knows the parks is in this position. It may make a drastic difference in what happens, and doesn't happen in the parks!

Bob White will be taking over the GM position at Carowinds. I was told he worked at PKI and most recently PGA. The change appears to be welcomed after talking with some PCWi "insiders". Fisher had gained a reputation when he let go over 50 long term employees (article made the local news), and the more recent incident when he created a new policy back in early summer that no Carowinds employee could remain in the park after their shift. That also made the local news. Yeh, news can be slow in Charlotte sometimes but this new little policy really caused a stir it seemed. Anyway, I am glad Fisher got his promotion but for the better of Carowinds, i am glad he is gone.
