  1. Thank you to everyone for voicing their opinion. I just want to let you know that I was never going to go to IAAPA to "fanboy". If I were to go it would be to network and to get potential internships/jobs. Trust me when it is not an easy decision to take a week off of school (especially in engineering) but I am trying to weigh out all of the pros and cons. The price tag is a little high but I do have loving and supporting parents willing to split the cost with me but they are already paying for my tuition and I don't want to ask for too much. If anyone would like to continue chatting feel free to PM me. Thank you again for your insight @DirkFunk @coasterkid124 @prozach626 @ajfelice @michallynn4
  2. While we are on the topic of whether or not it is worth it to go to IAAPA as a fan. I have a very serious question for this fan base. Should a college student spend $385 and a trip to Orlando and possibly miss a week of classes if they are looking to get into the amusement industry. I am studying Mechanical Engineering and the whole reason I am in this field is because of Rollercoasters and their impact on my life. I am curious to hear other people's opinions and stories about why they are on TPR and I welcome any advice given both not only to me but to others just like me who are waiting to get involved in the industry but just don't quite know how to yet.
  3. So I am a college student looking for a way to get into the amusement park industry. What should I be doing or do to "get my foot in the door." I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering and I have worked for two years at six flags st louis. I am very avid on designing coasters as I have played multiple simulators including RCT series and NL series. This has been my life long dream and I would love to get advice from other people just like me.
