First IAAPA Operators’ Forum Explores Accessibility

The IAAPA Operators’ Forum took place Oct. 3, 2016, in Hershey, Pennsylvania, drawing 67 participants from across the industry: amusement parks, water parks, zoos, aquariums, museums, tourist attractions, and more. During the day, attendees learned how accessibility impacts the attraction experience for guests and ways to apply best practices at any facility. Participants also visited Hersheypark for an on-site simulation of a park visit where one person of a group has disabilities.  At each experience station, takeaway cards were provided to ensure the lessons learned traveled back to ­participants’ facilities with them.
