We are always striving for a magazine with the best advice for locations, and this edition, which includes 13 original stories and eight bonus sidebars, is no exception. The articles are the result of the great work of our contributing writers, who interviewed attraction sources from all over the country to get a picture of trends and to gather advice that will help you run a better operation.

We have a special focus on the waterpark industry in each September/October edition, and in this issue we offer stories on tips to create a superior waterpark with maintenance and staff training, including the bonus sidebar “Guarding the Guardians – Five Tips to Keep Lifeguards Sharp.” We also look at the hot waterpark attractions for 2015 and offer advice to operate water inflatables successfully. Additionally, in the Food Service Spotlight section, we feature an article on how to increase food sales at waterparks.

Leading off the selection of articles each issue is The Large Park Report where Contributing Writer Chad Emerson zeros in on the changes that are afoot in the nation’s big parks. In this edition, we examine how mobile apps are changing the theme park experience.

Another strength of TAP’s editorial selection is our Entertainment Center Report. Each issue we offer original stories covering bowling, go-karts, miniature golf, roller skating and laser tag in addition to an occasional feature on bumper cars. This issue also includes a special Attraction Profile covering Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Extra entertainment center coverage can also be found in Street Beat, which contains the story “The Serious Business of Arcade Play – Tips to Elevate Profits” and the bonus sidebar “Boosting Business at the Arcade.” The Street Beat section also contains a feature offering advice to earn more profits with bulk vending and redemption machines.

We also offer food service coverage of the arena and stadium industry, a zoo, aquarium and museum exhibit design feature and an article on keeping classic haunted attraction characters fresh and scary.

Our Profiles in Excellence Issue

This is the annual Profiles in Excellence feature edition. Locations can learn from the profiles about the many quality companies that are producing the goods and services guests want.

We hope you enjoy reading the profiles, which can be found throughout the issue, and the rest of the magazine’s articles and photographs as well. Please email me at editortapmag@kanec.com with your comments, questions and suggestions, and I will respond to your note personally.
