We at Tourist Attractions & Parks (TAP) hope you approach the New Year with all of the optimism and energy you need to make luck and achieve success in your business endeavors.  In this issue, we offer stories that both explore possible trends for 2017 and illuminate upcoming events with original editorial to catch your interest.

In The Large Park Report, we offer a story on what to expect this year at a selection of big amusement operations. Along the same lines, in the Waves section, we talked with indoor waterpark owners and managers to get a picture of their plans and goals for 2017. The feature includes a bonus sidebar on how to respond to negative online reviews. Also, in the recurring Buzz Boyz feature, industry expert Frank Seninsky and myself  discuss 2017 after last year’s high-note ending at the positive-vibe IAAPA Attractions Expo.

This issue also recognizes three important industry events taking place early this year. We offer a look at the 2017 F2FEC conference in a special section that includes an original story on how to set your center apart from the competition. Additionally, we preview the IISF show with a Gibsonton Fair Preview story “Building Business – Trends in Carnivals, Fairs and Festivals” that includes a sidebar on the most popular midway games. We also offer a look at trends in fair and festival food to commemorate the NICA concessionaires show.

Additionally, there is a story covering ticketing at Russian entertainment centers, and an extensive Entertainment Center Report. This section covers bowling trends, maintenance at mini-golf and go-kart centers, food service at roller skating centers, trampoline park safety, zip lines and laser tag at He Hu Darz in Middlesboro, Ky.

The magazine also offers these sections: the AAMA FEC Corner; Street Beat; Museums and Aquariums; and Haunted Attractions and Escape Rooms.

TAP very much wants to become a better publication that is even more responsive to your interests and needs. Please email me at editortapmag@kanec.com with story ideas, comments and suggestions, and I will address your concerns personally. If you are a vendor interested in advertising in the publication, please email our advertising department at tapmag@kanec.com for a quick response. I hope you enjoy the issue.
