Australia's Fast Pass

9 posts in this topic

It was on Channel 10 Late News. They had a small Theme park Attractions Expo on the Gold Coast. It basically was saying about all new styles of attractions to keep people coming back to parks, that we can expect in the future. They showed a company that does a "fast past" style of ticketing, a Indian based company that does water laser light shows, Roller coasters, Flying ones and also Half Pipe with a Weird carriage. Dreamworld was shown alot with the ticketing company, so It might ed up heading there, they didn't state anything. Some of the event people were American.

Like mattcrombie said, it was just a trade show on the Gold Coast. The great thing about it is that in the media coverage they were all pretty much second teir companies who were featured. Zamperala were there flogging off their Flying Coaster (hopefully this year will mark the 5th straight year that no one has bought one in Australia) and "Disk-O" concept, some fountains guy was there talking about how his product hadn't taken off in Australia and some virtual queueing company (not Lo-Q) was there talking up his product to the media. Dreamworld's CEO was there and just said there was a new attraction coming which we all know about anyway, so nothing really that exciting in the media coverage.

Why didn't we hear about this expo before it happened?! It'd be pretty cool to visit a theme park expo, although I guess if you didn't manage a theme park it would be hard to get in, or do they let the public visit too?

Just for your info, the Conference is held by the Australian Amusement Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA for Short). The conference is open to Owners, Operators, & Senior management of Australian & International theme parks (and other recreational facilities). Hope this clears some stuff up.
