Welcome to the October issue of Park World!


In this issue, our Water Park Special, we have taken a look at a number of water parks worldwide who are doing some seriously interesting stuff with theming, technology and sheer size. Take a look at pages 26 through 34 to find out more.


On page 44, Gary Goddard, founder of the Goddard Group, shares his unique insight on what constitutes successful theme park design. Arihant, meanwhile, demonstrates its own highly successful take on theming in our Supplier Update feature on page 37.


Pages 58 to 65 see correspondent Ronnie Dungan providing Park World readers with an update on some of the latest offerings from the FEC sector, including a particularly interesting piece on Lazer Maze creator Funovation, as the company celebrates its tenth birthday. And on page 52, we supply a comprehensive guide to IAAPA 2017 – all the essential information in one place. On a personal note, it was great to meet so many members of the industry at EAS.


Whilst it felt like a baptism of fire, I am told that it was a stroll in the park compared to IAAPA next month… I hope you enjoy this issue, and if there are any topics or features you’d like to see covered in the future, please drop me an email at bandrews@datateam.co.uk or get in touch via Twitter at @ParkWorldMag


I am delighted to be a part of such a vibrant and pioneering industry and I can’t wait to see what the coming months will bring. See you in Orlando!
