Bio: I'm a professional truck driver and I've been all over the US and southern parts of Canada. I've also been on over 150+ different rollercoasters and countless flat rides and I've been to many amusement and theme parks over the years. I also love going to historical sites and digging up the history of the parks I visit. I'm also an avid amateur videographer and photographer. I'll take the best off ride videos I can with my handheld camcorder and the best pictures I can with my small camera.
My name is Nick Stubbs and I am a Casting Producer at Magilla Entertainment, a TV Production Company located in New York City. We have produced and created series such as Long Island Medium, Moonshiners, and Beachfront Bargain Hunt.
We have just sold six 30-minute episodes of a show entitled The United States of Amusement to a network that cannot be disclosed through email. Each episode will feature three parks that are similar in nature and in aesthetic. The parks being featured would be represented by a superfan per a park. The superfan would guide a host through the park as they show all the ins and outs and the details to the host, while simultaneously having a great day at the park.
The reason I am contacting you is to see whether or not you’d be interested in being a superfan or if you might know someone who would be. We really only have three parks left and they are in order of importance:
1.) Lion Country Safari-Loxahatchee, FL
2.) Gatorland-Kissimmee, FL
3.) Weeki Watchi Springs-Spring Hill, FL
The ideal superfan would have visited the parks multiple times and be quite familiar with it. Coupled with that is the fans ability to be personable on camera.
The age range is between 20-40 years old (but we can make exceptions for Lion Country Safari).
Just to be clear, the shooting dates are soon (coming weeks) and they are also during the week. Let me know what you think. You are welcome to call my office or cell at anytime or just email me back.
Thanks so much!
Thanks for offering me the opportunity but I’d have to decline as I’ve never been to Lion Country or Weekie Watchi Springs and it’s been years since my last visit to Gatorland. Also, my name isn’t Johnny.
I’m working on a story about Lagoon in Utah and the Rocket Ride. I wanted to see if we could use your YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD_UU56qiNc) for broadcast on a story about amusement ride regulation. Utah is one of 6 states that does not regulate or inspect amusement rides.
We would courtesy your YouTube channel. The story airs tomorrow (Tues Jan 15) at 10pm MST. Please let us know if this would be possible. Thanks!

You sure can.
