I thought I should post a notice that Imagineer and author Steve Alcorn has published a new book about the theme park design process, Theme Park Design: Behind The Scenes With An Engineer. Alcorn is the founder of Alcorn McBride Inc., a long-time fixture of the themed entertainment industry, and the author of Building a Better Mouse: The Story of the Electronic Imagineers Who Designed EPCOT (which I still need to review, but is definitely worth your time).
This isn’t a review; that will have to wait, as I’ve just started the book. But I can tell already that it’s going to be an informative read for anyone interested in the how, who and why of theme park design, engineering and operations with a dollop of good humor and some Imagineering anecdotes to boot. Check it out.
