    Follow Friday: Who to Follow on Twitter for Theme Park Fans (June 7, 2013)

    Twitter has evolved into an essential platform for those hoping to keep up with the latest news and developments from theme parks all over the world. Every week, we pick out five great Twitter accounts that all theme park fans should follow. Don’t forget, you can follow Theme Park Tourist via @ThemeParkNews and @ThemeParkOffers.

    @Orlando_United (Orlando United)

    The Orlando United forums are a fantastic source of photo updates from Florida theme parks – if you want to keep an eye on progress on Universal Orlando’s Harry Potter expansion, for example, then be sure to follow this feed.

    @ParkThoughts (Park Thoughts)

    Rather than just regurgitating news that is posted to dozens of other websites, the Park Thoughts blog prefers to take a deeper look at the latest theme park developments. There’s plenty of lively banter on its Twitter feed, too.

    @CoasterFusion (CoasterFusion)

    CoasterFusion is a club for coaster enthusiasts, which hosts regular events across the US. The site itself hosts a lively forum, while the Twitter feed is a good source of news on under-construction coasters.

    @ValleyMania (Valley Mania)

    We’re big fans of Lightwater Valley, a small but pleasant park in the north of England. If you are too, you can keep track of the latest news from the park via the excellent fan site Valley Mania.

    @Coaster101 (Coaster101)

    Long-running site Coaster101 is a great source of updates on new roller coasters, as well as general updates from the theme park industry.

    Look out for more Twitter recommendations for theme park fans next week!
