September's FUNWORLD Now Online
The cover of FUNWORLD's September issue features Audrey O'Connell of London's Natural History Museum. The cavernous structure she's standing in is the entryway to the museum's new Darwin Centre, and it leads into one of the main focuses of this edition: How museums are changing their mindsets to engage and entice visitors.
O'Connell speaks to this as part of our cover story on her, the Natural History Museum, and Darwin Centre, and you can read that article here. News Editor Keith Miller talked to several other facilities and designers, though, to get even more perspective on the issue; you can read that companion piece here.
Some other articles of interest this month:
• Departments Editor Marion Hixon has an in-depth look at zero-depth waterplay attractions, and how they're booming in popularity—and in some places you might not expect.
• Our Las Vegas resident writer extraordinaire, Steve Friess, offers all you could ever want to know about dining in Vegas during IAAPA Attractions Expo 2009.
• Contributing Editor Mike Bederka examines how mascots can help FECs extend their brand images.
And much more!
