Fun Foods for Fun Times

April 20, 2015 No Comments

Scott_MayEach spring Tourist Attractions & Parks (TAP) takes the pulse of the food segment of the leisure entertainment industry in an effort to inspire our readership to increase profits by making the most of this critical revenue stream. In this year’s installment we cover a wide array of attractions to bring readers tips and advice to improve food service operations.

In The Large Park Report, we examine how the food truck craze is making its way into major attractions. Additionally, in a special expanded Food Service Spotlight section, we offer stories on food and beverage trends at entertainment attractions and at mini-golf and go-kart centers and also an article on hiring the best bowling food service workers. And in the Zoos, Aquariums and Museums section, there is a story on tips to sell more food including the bonus sidebar Six Cool Ways to Keep Refrigerators Clean.

This issue is also unique in offering two bonus features. We profile PINSTACK in Plano, Texas, a new center from the Entertainment Properties Group with an upscale vibe and one-of-a-kind offerings. And in the Industry Innovations: A Special Report section, we cover the Face 2 Face Entertainment Conference (F2FEC), which was held in late February in Phoenix, Ariz.

Our regular features also contain a wealth of new information. In the Waves waterpark section, we offer practical advice on spring maintenance, including the sidebar Getting the Best Water Filtration Results: 11 Tips. In the Entertainment Center Report, we feature a story on advice for generating interest in roller skating, and an article on how popular laser tag locations are keeping up with demand. In the Street Beat section, we cover the hottest redemption and bulk vending machines. In the Amusement Rental/Inflatable News section, we feature a story on creating the best special events. And this issue’s Haunted Attractions story examines the hottest haunt characters for Halloween 2015.

We are always looking for new ways to be of service to the industry, and value ideas and input from our readership. If there is a topic or area of the industry that you would like to see us cover, please send your ideas and suggestions to editortapmag@kanec.com to my attention. I hope you enjoy the issue, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook, www.facebook.com/TAPnews and follow us on Twitter, twitter.com/tapmagazine1.
