Very interesting. He sort of reminds me of Willy Wonka, never really grew up. I do admire his drive and vision. I like his quote at the end about moving on to other things, it does help he had the financial freedom to live by this credo.
I would also have to say El Sombrero. I was the day lead there in 1996 and would make sure I spent about 90% of my time at Taz Twister. The afternoon sun would bake down and turn the operator booth into an oven.
