Season 3 will premiere on November 6th. There are exciting things in the works for AmusementSparks, so stay tuned to our social media and website for updates!


Greenhill Manor (Sideshow Sound Theatre)



Hey! We’re joined by the incredible Will Dodson and Wendell Jones from Sideshow Sound Theatre. These guys are exceptional composers and podcasters! Their Mouse Music show inspired my love for theme parks, which lead to the creation of AmusementSparks!

In this episode, we design a park inspired by Greenhill Manor, an album by Sideshow Sound Theatre based on their fantastic fictional theme park!

This is a truly unique episode–based on my guests’ creation!


Survivor: All In!



Zane from The Cartoncast brings us our first Live Action inspiration. From this source comes a park full of Live Action! Brush up on your survival skills, pack your competitive spirit, and come join in on the challenges at this Something-for-Everyone park!


Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist Kingdom



Will Allen joins the show to design a thrilling game-based theme park! This episode delves into how surprisingly cool Yu-Gi-Oh really is, from its early days as a manga up through all the different anime series! High stakes and high drama ride on every battle throughout the parks mysterious and hidden areas. Check out the Will West Show here: YouTube, Twitter, Facebook.

 

Shout out to the Yu-Gi-Oh Subreddit for some awesome ideas!


Disney Afternoon Tooniverse



Season two starts here! This guest features Gary Lane (@SMRGary) from the Saturday Morning Rewind Podcast! Together, we designed a park based on the Disney Afternoon animation block. This episode features inspiration from:

Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears

DuckTales

Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers

TaleSpin

Darkwing Duck

and a bit from the Mighty Ducks

P.S. Somehow I messed up my schedule, so this episode is technically a week late! I will post the next one in two weeks to get us back on the every third Monday schedule.


Season One Remodels and Renovations Episode!



We put the finishing touches on our first five parks in this episode! Thanks to Peter (@zenzooma, Peter Versus Peter) and Nic Robes (@wwyscoobydoo, What’s With You? Scooby-Doo!) for helping me out on this episode! We got some responses from Reddit and Facebook on this episode, which is thrilling to me as the guy behind the show!

Also, I forgot to introduce myself on the first five episodes, but I’m Andrew Spohn and here’s my internet stuff: RedditInstagramTwitter, my blog thing.

 

THANKS FOR LISTENING!! Seriously.


Gotham: Batman’s World



Episode five is here! This is a landmark episode as it is the first AmusementSparks show to feature two guests and it’s also our last new park of season one. It’s about time Batman got his own theme park–we’ve never done a park quite like this one!

 

The guest designers on this episode are Nathan K. and Craig Lewis. These guys run a few excellent podcasts (adult language, heads up) Fair Point (Facebook, Twitter), Fair Enough, and Silph Radio (Facebook). Click the show title to listen to each show!

 

If you like hearing Nathan and me together, check out Silph Radio episode 37, Workshopping a Pokemon MMO.

 

Next episode will be the first Remodels and Renovations Special! This will be a reflection on our first five parks and a bunch of special guests will appear to help make improvements!

Listener input would be extremely helpful for this next episode, so please post your ideas to our Facebook and Reddit communities. I’d really love for those sites to get some action! Thanks for listening!

 


Scooby Doo’s Mystery Town



Scooby Doo is a household name, but in this episode, we break new theme park ground. This is probably the most immersive and impactful park we have designed so far!

My guest for this episode is Nic Robes who hosts the amazing What’s with You? Scooby Doo! Podcast. Those different colored words in the previous sentence are links to Nic’s stuff!

I think this would make a great introductory episode, so if you have any friends who might like it, now is a great time to share this podcast!
