1957. What if Walt Disney wanted a time travel ride for his recently opened Disneyland, a peek into a city of the future and what it might hold—a thrilling ride? What if he had an “imagineer” he felt could come up with what that future might hold and how the ride might work? What if that imagineer, not wanting to merely speculate what the future might hold, figures out a way to travel to the future to see exactly what it might hold?
Thrill Ride takes the reader on exactly that journey, from the Los Angeles of 1957 sixty years into the far-off future of 2017. What our time traveler finds there, whom he meets, and whether he can actually get back to his own time—well, that’s the tale. So climb aboard, and come along on a fanciful thrill ride, one filled with humor, suspense, and surprises.
