The IAAPA Expo is a yearly conference held at the Orange County Convention Center, and features the latest and greatest in theme park technology on display all in one place. The conference is typically five days long, and it’s a real challenge to see all there is to see and do all there is to do in less than a week. But how about in just one day? Due to pandemic restrictions this year, we were only given access for Friday, the final day of the trade show. And this being my first experience at IAAPA after hearing about it for years, there was no better way than jumping right in. Trial by fire, right? Read on below to get a glimpse of all that I saw and did in my whirlwind six hours at the IAAPA Expo 2021.
I had several hands-on experiences on the show floor, and one of my favorites was from Immotion’s virtual reality experiences. I got to demo two of the experiences, one in the entertainment category, and one in edu-tainment. The edu-tainment demo was Swimming with Humpbacks, and featured some stunning up close footage of the creatures. The motion based seats provided an immersive feel to the experience without being too intense, so this experience is more accessible for anyone with motion sickness.
