June's FUNWORLD: OCT and More …
The June issue of FUNWORLD is out, and we're excited to feature OCT Group's Ren Kelei on the cover. The cover story gives a broad look at China's theme park empire—past, present, and future—and examines what makes the company so successful.
Also in this issue:
• I have a piece on how attraction merchandisers incorporate current fashion trends into their own lines to make their merch more appealing to the hip set.
• Departments Editor Marion Hixon offers up a series of profiles on waterparks that offer guests a more complete, resort-type experience.
• Contributor Lisa Anderson Mann examines how attractions can fine tune their water systems to save as much water as possible. (As far as I know, this is the first FUNWORLD article to investigate methods for saving water on urinal flushes.)
Thanks for reading. If you have comments, suggestions, or questions about anything FUNWORLD-related, always feel free to e-mail me.
