To commemorate the IAAPA Attractions Expo, the annual event that brings the amusement industry together for learning, networking, fun and buying, Tourist Attractions & Parks offers an issue full of good ideas to improve your operation in 16 articles and numerous smaller stories and sidebars.

The Large Park Report leads off the edition with a special story on the successful new rides of 2014, and a look ahead to 2015’s attractions. In other park news, the Waves section offers an article on SeaWorld San Diego’s Aquatica waterpark.

We also present a Special Report: Entertainment Industry Innovations section. In this group of stories, you will find articles on trends in agricultural and outdoor adventure attractions, animatronics, interactive video rides at FECs and more.

Family entertainment centers (FECs) offering affordable fun and food are great alternatives for families and others looking for a day or evening out. Each issue, TAP offers unmatched coverage of the FEC universe. In this issue, readers can learn from articles on preventing injuries and accidents at bowling centers, buying the best furnishings and trash cans for miniature golf and go-kart facilities, carpeting purchase and maintenance advice from roller skating centers plus a bonus sidebar on picking the right carpet colors, changes in booking parties at and driving traffic to FECs, adding additional attractions to laser tag centers and trends in bumper cars.

We also offer a look at the ticket, token and swipe card admissions and redemption picture, tips for stocking the right redemption prize merchandise and a bonus sidebar on stocking cranes with attention-grabbing prizes in the Street Beat section, and tips to offer the best coffee and dessert options at museums, a sidebar on getting guests to drink coffee and the best ideas for dining area seating in the Food Service Spotlight section.

A look at the most-requested party rental items in the Amusement Rental/Inflatable News section and operational advice and a bonus sidebar on cleaning tips from haunted attractions around the country are also part of this issue’s editorial offerings.

We also include many bonus features in the book, including attraction, golf, laser tag and coin-op product news items, a list of Tourist Attractions & Parks magazine advertisers that will be exhibiting at the Expo, advertisements from the leading businesses in the industry and more.

I hope that you enjoy the issue. Please contact me at editortapmag@kanec.com with your comments, questions and suggestions.
