Did KMG have models or concept art for the other new rides they debuted this year?


Also, that GCI big fun concept seems l ike it is going to be a HUGE hit! Small parks/family fun centers can now get a super cheap big ticket ride!


Great coverage guys!

Ok, Robb is grabbing some food and on his way back to start getting the videos up!


I have gone through the entire thread and made a list of pictures and questions to do tomorrow at the show! Any other requests or info just post and I'll see what we can do!

Big Fun looks like a potential winner for GCI--quite a boon for smaller parks who need a big attraction on a budget.


Thanks for the coverage, Robb and Elissa. I'm looking forward to the videos.

Outstanding coverage again, TPR IAAPA crew... looking good all around.


The new Spin N' Spews are looking nauseating as usual- including that thing from KMG that has "F&$K no way" written all over it (It is NOT a QR approved ride concept...) and some of the new waterslides make me want to venture into some of these parks.

Just got back from an amazing day at IAAPA. It was such an amazing experience getting to meet representatives from all of the major companies. Definitely the most educational experience of my life. I will never forget this day
