IAAPA 2010 Trade Show Orlando Coverage! Photo & Video Update


Recommended Posts

Hey Robb

Thanks for the updates it's very much appriciated and really interesting to see how different companies pitch different ideas.

 

Got an odd question though. As someone who goes to IAAPA every year do you find certain companies update and change their booths every year while others will keep using the same set up year after year?

 

I visit Oceanology or Ocean Buisness every year and I tend to find the well established companies will very rarely change their setup as people know who they are already where as the new startups are always changing their stands. Wondered if it tends to be the same at IAAPA?

I just watched the latest video and I have to ask, Was that helicopter drop ride as painful as it looked? It also looked seriously terrifying.

 

Those new Proslide designs look great.

Robb, can you please ask Rick Hunter, if it's possible to tell you the exact opening date and day of the Proslides at Wild Wadi in December?

 

I'll plan a visit on Dec. 2nd/3rd; it would be great to ride them!

 

Thank you. For the interesting and funny updates, too!

I just do not get the point of a launched wooden coaster and why any park would get one. Some things just are not meant happen with a wood coaster. We will see if anyone bites and tries this.

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!!! Loved the report. I can't say thanks enough!

 

Can't wait for the Pretzel Cones!!! There are so many things to look forward to in the near future. As for the pro-slides, Wildebeest is an incredible watercoaster. Much more comfortable and smooth than the Master Blasters. As for the Topsy-Turvy and Tantrums, I have only been on them once, but do they all have those super annoying speed bumps? We went on them at Adventure Island on the Middle America trip so I don't know if the bumps are standard, or if it's an Adventure Island thing.

 

Now I need to get a Rocky Mountain Coaster bench and play with some playdough!

Sorry, Ledgy, I won't be back to IAAPA to ask him. I would suggest emailing the park.

While we can't know what's going on with I305, do you know around when the fix will be complete?

Mum.

 

Well it just better be ready by 4/2/11 for KD's opening day.

Or else what?

To be honest, the booths don't change much from year to year. Just have a look at the 7 years of IAAPA trip reports we have in the Park Index, and you'll see for yourself how similar they stay over the years:
