A note from the author:

Welcome to The Atypical Coaster Nerd’s official website! For those of you who are not following my Instagram account already (I have linked it below), my name is David Silva and I love roller coasters and theme parks. Originally started as an account on Instagram, I created The Atypical Coaster Nerd for a few reasons:

  1. The “atypical” part of the name comes from the fact that I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). By creating this account, I am hoping to show the world that everyone, regardless of their disability, can have fun.
  2. I am a citizen of the world. I was born in the USA but my father is Ecuadorian. I have had the rare opportunity of experiencing life, (and roller coasters) in many different countries around the world.
  3. I am going the non-traditional route. Theme park enthusiasts are used to videos, but I think that words are worth a thousand pictures. The world has never seen a theme park enthusiast blog quite like this one!

It’s not just Disney, Southern California, and Orlando- The possibilities are endless!
