Who's behind Theme Park Tourist?

Theme Park Tourist was founded by Nick Sim in 2009. It was run by himself and Natalie Sim, a husband-and-wife team based in the UK until Nick died on 30th November 2016. It is now run by Natalie, whose aim is to continue the amazing work Nick did to make Theme Park Tourist the best and most informative independent theme park website on the web.
