Training for his daughter's first Disneyland visit
Scott Wegener is a multi-award winning creative writer who loves theme parks. While a stay-at-home dad he put the time his daughter napped in the afternoons to good use - no, not cleaning the house, but putting together this book and iPhone app. 
Living in the Yarra Ranges of Victoria, Australia, visiting any significant-sized theme parks is a long and expensive process for Scott.
"Writing these activities helped me feed the cravings I have between visits to large theme parks, like Disneyland,” he says. “I love thinking about theme parks and this gave me an excuse to constantly picture myself in the queues of my favourite park attractions. I’d play out the ideas that came to mind of how I’d entertain myself and the friends I’d imaginary taken to the park with me.”
While his favourite, and most frequented, theme park is Disneyland, California, USA, he also enjoys the 'extreme' parks, like Six Flags.
The full story of how he fell in love with Disneyland can be found on the iPhone app.
Being an only child may have helped develop Scott’s creativeness for generating entertainment.
“I can’t recall the last time I was bored,” he muses.
“I’ve never personally had any difficulty in entertaining myself in any situation, alone or with friends. Hopefully these products will help those who have to visit theme parks at peak times to endure, if not enjoy, the queuing experience. They’ll have this large collection of ideas of what someone who doesn’t get bored would do in their situation.”

Scott suggests that if half the day at an amusement park is spent in queues, you can double the enjoyment of your theme park visit by making the queues fun too.
“I guess my ultimate aim could be to make the queuing more fun than the attraction,” he says.
“Can you imagine having people sitting on the attraction waiting eagerly to join the next queue? In respect for the large amount of money spent on attractions, I’ve made sure the activities are just a little less exciting than the attractions being queued for.”
Scott also runs DiscountedThemeParkTickets.com from home as another avenue of being involved with theme parks and again - making visiting theme parks that little bit more enjoyable.
