Striving for Excellent Experiences

Giving it all to make the best possible decisions is a cornerstone of success in any business endeavor. In the leisure entertainment industry, keeping a close eye on how consumers want to spent their free time can be a particularly challenging part of the decision-making process. Although much has been written about staying at home for entertainment, the desire to get out and interact with others will likely always be a factor in how guests have fun. 

Making sure guests stay entertained can mean constantly changing what your facility offers. When the changes require the work of new vendors, it can be challenging to find companies that will meet your needs. It is in the spirit of connecting locations with the best vendors that Tourist Attractions & Parks each year offers the Who’s Who Buyer’s Guide in the February/March edition. We hope you enjoy the guide.

The issue also recognizes Las Vegas’ Amusement Expo International 2018 and The Laser Tag Convention with expanded coin-operated device and laser tag coverage. In the Street Beat Section, we offer stories on creating the best arcades in laser tag centers, trends in bulk vending and other coin-op machines, and an article titled “Games and Prizes that Are Tops – Perspectives from Operators and Locations.” And in the “Entertainment Center Report · Spotlight on Laser Tag” we offer stories on arena theming and the best maintenance tips for laser tag centers. 

TAP’s editorial offerings also include timely coverage of changes in the business climate. For example, in this issue’s installment of The Buzz Boyz, the new tax law is discussed. The story is followed by the article “Perspectives in Crisis Management – How To Handle the Media.” 

The issue additionally includes stories on shoulder seasons at large parks, indoor waterparks, mentoring employees at entertainment centers, strategies to prepare for the busy season, trampoline park safety, fun foods, insurance coverage for inflatables, maintenance tips and other topics. 

I hope you find this edition informative. Please call me at 610-645-6940 ext. 0 or email editortapmag@kanec.com with your comments, questions and suggestions and I will respond to your call or note personally.
