Theme Park Maps


My buddy Sam Smith hipped me to this fantastic online collection of theme park maps. Pileup blog devotees know what a huge fan I am of theme park maps, so that I really enjoy this website should come as no surprise. Here are a few highlights...

wow...
that would be such a fun job, just get some aerial photo of an amusement park and have to draw it. Sign me up.

It would be hilarious to create your own of a present day amusement park and plant them in the park all over...

I did a series of hand-painted maps of amusement parks I've worked in including the employee areas that they don't show you on the real maps. I looked at a bunch of these vintage maps for inspiration! Love em!
