Between 2015-2017, the interactive dark ride JUSTICE LEAGUE™: Battle for Metropolis opened in seven Six Flags locations: Arlington, TX; St. Louis, MO; Gurnee, IL; Jackson, NJ; Mexico City; Atlanta, GA; and Santa Clarita, CA (Six Flags Magic Mountain, in the greater Los Angeles area). In April 2019, the ride was honored with a TEA Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement that singled out the installation at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Having made its debut during the Halloween season of 2012, “Trick or Treat” is currently the oldest running maze at Knott’s Scary Farm, where new walk-through attractions tend to rotate out every couple years or so. It being a fan favorite, the designers at Knott’s were hesitant to remove it this time around. But what about the possibility of adding something new?
Gantom Torch Technology, developed by Gantom Lighting & Controls, received a Thea Award this year – a prestigious honor conferred by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) that was in recognition of the technology’s creative potential.
Attendees will be treated to a Queen Mary tour, as well as a sneak preview of the attraction’s Halloween ‘Dark Harbor’ event.
Taking place on July 30th, 2018, the theme of this year’s symposium is ‘First Impressions’. Presentations will focus on crafting memorable first impressions using the key elements of elevation, insight, pride, and connection.

Most of us have had the experience of stepping into an elevator on the top floor of a high building, watching the doors close, and wondering—at least for a few seconds—what would it feel like if the elevator’s mechanism failed and we plummeted floor after floor down the shaft.
Seasonal events can be of enormous benefit to attractions, bringing in new visitors and giving old ones a reason to return. The Illumination winter event at Morton Arboretum has been a great success and provides a model for what other attractions can achieve.
