Annual Pass is a Rooster Teeth podcast, hosted by long-time RT employees Jack Pattillo and Geoff Ramsey, that covers all things theme parks by leading us through their love of theme parks, theme park news, and a focus on a new ride every week.
As I said, Annual Pass covers all topics around theme parks, from Disney to Universal and beyond. Each episode highlights a particular attraction and its history, including brand new rides as well as long-gone ones as well. Sometimes they will interview someone, be it someone who worked on the particular ride they are covering or someone who worked in a theme park and their experience doing so.
The podcast is overall pleasant to listen to and definitely enjoyable if you like theme parks. If you prefer certain parks over others, you can easily skip around to the episodes covering that park if that is what you want to do. But even if you do like one park above all, like how I love Disneyland over any other theme park, all episodes are interesting and entertaining. And I credit that to Jack’s overall enthusiasm for the topic.
I personally watch and listen to a lot of theme-park-centric content, from news, tips and tricks, vlogs, and history. Annual Pass has a little bit of all of that, which makes it a good choice if you want one place to get all of that. I will say that not everything they share is the most revolutionary, particularly when they share tips. But the interviews and enthusiastic exploration of rides is what makes Annual Pass stand out.
You can listen to Annual Pass where podcasts can be found, and they also have a YouTube channel if that is more fitting for you.
