How to Choose the Right Access Control for Your Amusement or Trampoline Park

Posted by Sherry Howell on Jun 15, 2017 11:50:05 AM

Go beyond paper tickets and get with the future of access control for your entertainment facility.

The advent of summertime means that the theme park wars are in full effect. Are you Team Disney or Team Universal? I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love to see parks continually striving for that bigger splash in our industry.

No doubt the leadership at your park is also on the hunt for the next attraction, package or even business development that will give you that edge over your competitors. And with attractions and technology that are ever-changing, parks need to be on the lookout for the right systems and processes to manage how guests interact with your attractions and your park.

Posted by Sherry Howell on May 30, 2017 10:00:00 AM


When it comes to expanding the client base in your business, it’s all about who you know – and how you leverage those relationships.

Every day I get inundated on social media with requests to join Marguerite’s Fabulash party or shop Lola’s pop up dress boutique. From the days of Pampered Chef kitchenware to today’s Rodan + Fields skincare, direct marketing salespeople are taught to begin with their personal networks, which is why social platforms such as Facebook have become popular vehicles for promoting those types of businesses.

Posted by Sherry Howell on May 23, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Careful attraction and event scheduling creates a winning experience for your guestsand your business.

Do you ever have that nightmare where you’re supposed to be somewhere and you search and search but can’t find the location? Or the one where you realize you have a final and you’ve forgotten to attend classes all semester? What about the one where you accidentally mess up your birthday party scheduling and double book two parties for 30 eight-year-olds?

Versions of that last one have most likely made an appearance in your dreams – and maybe even your reality. Effective party and attraction scheduling is a must for every busy amusement facility, and sometimes there is a power struggle between what’s best for the business and what’s best for your guests. However, savvy operators agree that the two are far more closely linked than they first appear.
