End of the road for ASOG (For now)


Over the year or so I have been writing for ASOG, I have noticed that the articles that are related to theme park news were among the most popular on the site.  Theme parks and roller coasters have been a passion of mine for quite some time.  So I have decided to create a completely separate website for theme park related news called ThrillGeek.

ASOG will remain dormant for a period of time until I figure out what to do with the site.  I simply do not have the time to upkeep two completely different blogs.

I would also like to take a quick second to thank everyone over the past year that has checked out ASOG and been part of this site.

ThrillGeek will be all things theme park, from news to photos and videos.

Go check it out at www.thrillgeek.com and get your theme park geek on!

Or follow the site on Facebook and Twitter:


Thanks!

In an interesting rumor going around today, word is going around that Universal has purchased the rights for all theme park rights to build Middle Earth attractions, aka Lord of the Rings.  Nothing has officially been announced yet as to what will happen, or where it will go.  This is strictly a rumor at this point, but it has been in talks for quite some time.  Perhaps it is finally becoming a reality.

Wii Mini Coming to Canada


If the current sized Nintendo Wii is too big for your living room, Nintendo may have a solution in the way of the Nintendo Wii Mini.  When it is released on December 7, it will only be available in Canada, but more countries may soon follow.

The Wii Mini will feature a glossy red color with a black lid that will pop open to place your game inside the console.  The Wii Mini will set you back $99, not a bad holiday gift idea for you Canadians eh?

You will also get one nunchuck and one Wii Remote with the package.
