The Coaster101 Podcast: Theme Park Nerd-dom with Broadway Actor Nik Walker
You never know where you’ll find a true theme park enthusiast in the wild, and you may find them when you least expect it. While many people claim to be a “theme park nerd,” rarely are they able to back up that claim with actual in-depth knowledge and passion. This is NOT the case with Broadway Actor Nik Walker (Hamilton, Ain’t Too Proud). He. Knows. His. Stuff. (and we LOVE to see it.)
Nik, who had it written into his contract for Ain’t Too Proud that he would be able miss rehearsal for the opening of Rise of the Resistance, joins Andrew and Shane this week to talk all things theme park, along with being a theme park nerd. There’s great discussions on Marvel, Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Disneyland Food, Canobie Lake Park, Touring production travel and even a great Captain E.O. impression. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
