During the D23 Disney Parks and Resorts Expo, chairman Bob Chapek announced some of the long rumored announcements and expansion plans for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The major announcements came in the form of a Star Wars Land for both Resorts! As expected with Disney, no expense was sparred with the design of these new themed environments of the immersive Star Wars environment.

Today we head to our home park of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom to take a look around during the busy Summer 2015 Season! We check out the new transport buses, Dare Devil Chaos in action, Roar for one last time before it closes August 16!
Just a normal day at Six Fl...WHAT! The park finally replaced the old, rusty, burning hot steel bench ride to the front gate with new buses!?!? They should've at least had an announcement and farewell period for me to get my final rides in! :)

Located snug between the various attractions in Fisherman's Wharf, the San Francisco Dungeon is a relatively newcomer to the Tourism Scene in Downtown San Francisco. With a little over a year under its belt (The dungeon opened June 2014) this innovative tourist attraction continues to vie for tourists' attention along with the numerous competitors nearby thirsty for business.

Theme Park Overload had the opportunity to visit Golfland SunSplash in Roseville, CA to check on construction of their new "Riptide" Water Slide! We had the opportunity of talking with Golfland's Head of Water Park Operations to learn many details on this nearly completed Water Slide for 2015!
The new tower is located right at the park entrance, and is in full view for all park guests to see. Because of its more remote location from the main Water Park tower, an isolated splashdown pool at the bottom will not flow into the centralized "Lazy River" like a lot of the other park's slides.
