We’re on a Mission for You
Happy New Year!
Ever wonder how Cyber Quest learns about new games and cutting-edge entertainment experiences? The answer is IAAPA, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. IAPPA is the epicenter for what’s new and what’s cool in the arcade industry and beyond—and a convention important to your Cyber Quest visit.
Founded in 1918, IAAPA represents more than 6,000 attraction suppliers and contributors from more than 100 countries. Attendees include professionals from arcades, amusement parks, theme parks, attractions, water parks, resorts, family entertainment centers, zoos, aquariums, science centers, museums, manufacturers, and suppliers–gathering together to make your entertainment experience exciting and top-notch.
In November of 2019, our CQ team traveled to Orlando along with 42,600 other attendees (the largest attendance in IAAPA history) to explore the 585,000 square foot show floor brimming with fun. Our objective was to learn more about game innovation and what we could do to keep our guests engaged and happy. We were also checking out new prize redemption options to keep up with current industry trends. Because we strive to offer quality prizes to our guests, this is one way that we can ensure we are providing the right variety of items.
IAAPA also gives our team a chance to personally experience the latest technology, video and skill games, virtual reality, motion simulators, and so much more all under one (giant) roof. It was exciting to play the games and test the newest Virtual Reality arenas. It’s important to us that we provide an outstanding guest experience, and by testing these products prior to putting them in our centers we can ensure that our players are getting the latest and greatest.
IAAPA is an experience like no other. With over 1000 companies from around the world showcasing new products and services, there is no shortage of ideas to keep Cyber Quest on an entertaining and progressive track. Throughout the coming year, you will no doubt see new games arriving at both Cyber Quest and Kids Quest—be sure to try them out and give us feedback on what you think!
