The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) yesterday announced the winners of the annual Brass Ring Awards, recognizing attractions for outstanding marketing efforts.
Cedar Point won several awards in the "class 5" division which includes parks with more than 1.5 million annual visitors. The park scored first place for their brochure, second for their media kit, first for print advertisement, third for radio ad and second for Web site. Dorney Park won best Web site, and along with the Cedar Point site, was designed by Wadsworth, Ohio based Website Design and Development.
Smaller parks were well represented from all over the world in their divisions, while the Sea World parks nailed several awards in the "attractions" category.
Read about all of the winners from IAAPA.
Actually, my whine would almost be legitimate...after all, CF's Minnesota division (which would include VF and KCS-MOA) did score first in television ads, first and second in radio commercials and both second spots in outdoor advertisements...but do we get any love? Nooooooooooo.
In closing, I would like to say that Cedar Fair had better lavish all the money on these fine properties they deserve before they dry up and blow away. Look for my 'Valleyfair 2005' thread to open real soon now.
Preventative rant completed. My work is done here.
2nd Place Cliff's Amusement Park (Albuquerque, NM, USA)
1st Place Lake Winnepesaukah (Chattanooga, TN, USA)
Those are done by the same company!
Cedar Point, Cedar Point, Cedar Point. Everything's gotta be about Cedar Point and all. What about MY home park?
Then you're really not going to like tonights Big E awards results.. ;)
Look for my 'Valleyfair 2005' thread to open real soon now.
I'm sorry but I just can't help but laugh at that -- I mean we aren't far enough into the off season to start our annual VF vs WOF thread yet. :)
(Who already knows his spinning coaster's layout)
Oh, did you go to Cheapo Depo to get your giant can of whoop @$$? :) You better BRING IT!
SWOOSH SHADDY! (who can coast until Christmas at one of his homeparks!)
-SS (I can take ya!)
Of course, I can't participate since I haven't been to VF (yet), but anyone going to KCS/MoA needs to let me know so I can get more rides on one of the greatest flats ever built....oh yeah, and the new spinning coaster...
bill, thinking CP wins more awards than they're due...after spending time in Orlando, it's the GUESTS at CP who deserve the awards, for loading and unloading in a TIMELY fashion...;)
