Theme Park Review
Theme Park Review is a website created by Alvey as a place to show his and others travels to different theme parks. The website was started in 1996 and became a site for coaster videos, photos, forums, and information about theme parks and roller coasters. In total, the website sees over 2 million visitors a year and has more than 35,000 registered members. After the popularity of his website increased, a number of people indicated they wished to be involved in his theme park tours, so he began selling tickets for fans to accompany him. These tours were organized by Alvey through his website and span multiple theme parks across the United States and internationally, such as the Middle America Tour in August 2010, where seventeen theme parks were attended over the course of fifteen days, and a 40 person world tour that included Aussie World in Australia.
Alvey has worked as a video game producer on a number of games including a new version of A Boy and His Blob and Call of Duty: United Offensive. Companies he has worked with include MGM Interactive, WayForward Technologies, Take-Two Interactive, and Gray Matter Interactive.
