Deep? Perhaps not. But highly nostalgic and fun...
18 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Rick Sebak directed, produced and narrated this highly enjoyable film. It visits many old amusement parks that still exist today and talks about how they have changed over the years--complete with lots of interviews, film clips and the like. It's all great, great fun--mostly due to Sebak's nice delivery and deliberate pace.

I strongly believe this film frequently shown on PBS would appeal to an older audience. I am 47 and enjoyed it a lot, but even older folks than me would be a great audience for "Great Old Amusement Parks". I remember many great old defunct parks and watching the documentary is great nostalgia. But what about younger folks--people who never heard of places like Marshall Hall, Kennywood or Wildwood? To them, amusement parks are Six Flags, Disney or Kings Island--all giant corporate parks that just don't have the same memories or old-style entertainment.
