As many of you know, Marcus Leshock is a big fan of roller coasters and theme parks, and now he has his very own podcast to talk all about them!

Every week Marcus will rundown the latest news in the theme park world, and do plenty of traveling along the way. There will be trip reports from the biggest roller coaster openings, and expert tips for traveling with your family to amusement parks across the country.

In the first episode, Marcus welcomes special guest Caitlin Kepple, the new Communications Manager at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee. They talked about her backstory, the park’s new launch coaster Maxx Force and how construction was going, the new WiFi and mobile food ordering system they’ll be implementing this year, and changes planned for Magic Waters in Rockford.

Marcus also spent some time talking about the latest news in the theme park world, including the new Monster Jam Thunder Alley experience coming to Cedar Fair parks, Epcot’s final performance date for its IllumiNations show, and Universal Studios Hollywood ride based on the “Secret Life of Pets” movies.

And Marcus also talked about the improvements being made to the wooden coasters at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. You can read more and see some photos on their blog post here.
