So, with mammoth... Is the idea that they could switch out rafts to increase capasity depening on how heavy crowds are that day? The only issue I see with running multiple styles of rafts on the same circuit is patrons battleing for their desired raft.


IAAPA looks like a lot of fun, and also a lot of work. Thanks for the great coverage and I hope you guys are enjoying the show!

Ok, this might actually be the creepiest thing at the show!



More dark ride and haunt vendors.



The show isn't going so well for this guy.



Tons of stuff like this all over IAAPA.



Good thing I have $750 on me!



Why yes that is Adam and Jake in a giant wet ball.



This looked like some sort of perverted sex act but was really quite fun and awesome!!! And yes, Jake is doing some sort of man split!



Here's Adam the moment he ate shit in the Fishpipe!



His nose Wiggles and vibrates and is beyond creepy!!!


Keep checking back for more photos!

Lo-q on your iphone? Really? This solves basically every single problem anyone has ever had with lo-q's old system (Like parks dealing with loss mitigation, or teenagers who aren't allowed to rent because they don't have a season pass/id/credit card). If I owned Lo-q I'd also use this system for targeted offers or personalized experiences. So much potential here. Is there any information on which parks are ready to implement or what additional features the system will have?


It also introduces one major new one; international users who can't use the system without paying a small fortune in data roaming costs.

The Kuka robot arm photo made my day. I wonder how many IAAPAs will take place before we see a Kuka arm building another kuka arm.


Does the 8 grand velociraptor move at all? I'm assuming for that price it doesn't . If it's an actual animatronic, then I'm selling a kidney and putting that in my living room.
