Hey Folks!

I just received my copy of SCARY DARK RIDES By Doug Higley. It was like being right there on the rides, once I started reading , I couldn't put the book down until I finished it. I highly recommend this book in every way! Thanks Doug, for letting me return again to my boyhood days of the 50's and the wonderful rides of the good old days. The first one I can recall , was the GHOST SHIP.and one called THE BARN..later DER SPOOKEN KASTLE GREAT STUFF!

Thanks for the ride Doug!

You're most welcome, glad you enjoyed it. It's about the rides but also about the chemistry of entertainment in the dark and the Midways and Theme parks and of course a personal recollection. It is NOT a list of rides or a How-To...it's a
'Why-To". Smile

Folks always tell me, 'You ought write a book." Well...This is the way I decided to write it.

Doug, How does one order one?......

Thanks for reminding me. I've been wanting one of those.

Will you personalize the signature? Take liberty but remember my books are all my kid is gonna inherit.

I just received mine and a special extra gift I was not expecting. It is now sitting on my desk. The extra thing not the book. The book is on the coffee table until I'm done reading it and then it goes in the library.

Thanks Doug. I look forward to reading it.

Regards,

Ted

Took this book on vacation with me... always a bad idea, as I never get time to read on vacations... read it cover to cover in one sitting. Highly recommended reading for anyone interested in a heartfelt tome about the bygone days of coolness.
