Why Attend

ADA isn't just a policy in your handbook or a section in your guide map, it's way of operating that serves a specific segment of your guest population to ensure you are providing equal and appropriate access to all guests. If you have ever wondered specifically what this means for your attraction or property, join us for the IAAPA Operators Forum: ADA, An in-depth study of what it means to you and your operation. 

Over a 3-day period at Six Flags Great Escape in beautiful Lake George, New York, experienced facilitators and park operators will guide you through immersive classroom experiences, hands-on practical training and opportunities to learn and network with like-minded individuals who share your unique challenges.

Space is limited to ensure a high-quality education experience. Reserve your spot now!
The registration fee includes meals and programming.
