Theme Park Twitter 101: 101 Must-Follow Theme Park-Related Accounts

Twitter is a unique social media platform. Where else can you follow strangers on the internet, and interact with their views, opinions, memes and gifs, all in 280 characters or less? (Don’t answer that question.) The subsection of theme park twitter provides its own unique small corner of the internet where people can bond and learn more about a common interest: Amusement Parks, Roller Coasters, and the amusement industry as a whole.

As with any social media platform, there can be a lot of “hot air” or “noise,” so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to curate a list of 101 theme park-related twitter accounts that we consider “must-follow”  to get the best possible experience out of theme park Twitter. (Really, it’s just a list of 100, because we’re including ourselves as well.) We’re not “ranking” these twitter accounts, rather just listing them in alphabetical order after us!

First things first: You’ll notice there aren’t any parks on this list. You should probably be following (at least your local) parks on Twitter regardless of some random website suggesting you follow them. The people behind these twitter accounts are all great and do some amazing work. It should be a given, which is why we didn’t include them. (We’ve included a list of theme parks on twitter for your convenience!)

Disclaimer: This isn’t a scientific list. Twitter truly is in the eye of the beholder. You may follow other people in theme park twitter who aren’t listed. That’s fine! We tried to pick a wide range of people who mostly/solely tweet about theme parks. If you’re offended that your blog/podcast/twitter account is not listed, be sure to tweet snarky or angry things at us (or better yet, subtweet us and let us find it!) and then go outside and take a deep breath! It’ll all be okay! (By tweeting snark at us, you open us up to fire snark right back!)

Without further adieu, here’s the list!


It’s us! Your good friends! You know who we are, and what we do. If you’re not following us yet…why!
