The bad news is that most parks in North America are in their off season. The good news? That means IAAPA coverage by TPR! Looking forward to the updates. Going to be hard for you to top all the great interviews from last year but good luck.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

 

Yay!!! It's IAPPA! I love reading about IAPPA and seeing all the crazy new stuff the companies came up with! I'm definitely keeping my eyes peeled for the waterslides, they always come up with some real crazy stuff in IAPPA and some miniature models I just want to buy and keep on display in my house! I'm so excited!
