Who is
Mr. Theme Park?


Mr. Theme Park is….Dennis Speigel

Dennis never looked back after catching the amusement park fever as a 13-year-old boy taking tickets at Cincinnati’s Coney Island in 1959. After working his way up the ranks of amusement park management, and personally developing two new theme parks (Kings Island in Ohio and Kings Dominion in Virginia), he found himself overseeing the development of amusement and theme parks internationally for Taft Broadcasting. It was this experience that led him to establish his own global consulting company. Dennis founded his company, International Theme Park Services (“ITPS") in 1983, and put his lifetime of experience to work. For over 50 years now, Dennis has loved this great industry passionately and continues to learn daily, while imparting his knowledge and wisdom to his peers, colleagues, friends, and business associates.

“We work in a great industry. We don’t pollute the skies and we don’t contaminate the streams. At the end of the day, what we really do is put smiles on people’s faces.”

Dennis Speigel - aka “Mr. Theme Park"
