TSPP presents to you our interview with, theme park legend, Ira West (President of Ira West, Inc.). Recorded at Visioneering Studios in Irvine, CA, with Mel McGowan (Co-Founder and Chief Creative Principal of Plain Joe Studios) this is the ultimate conversation on the birth of the theme park and the science of park development. If a park was created, there’s a good chance Ira designed it. Disney, Six Flags, Marriott's, Opryland, Kings Island, Dollywood, Magic Mountain, Holiday World, Puy du Fou…we uncover it all. Get your note book, this is "Theme Park Planning 101!" One of the most important industry history podcasts you’ll hear. Enjoy!
