Along with the Pro-Slides topic and me snooping around, I checked out the IAAPA site and all their company booths. Intamin was not on the list.
Are they actually there and the site didn't mention them or is Intamin actually not there? Kind of odd if they aren't.

Maybe the champagne drinking, chainsmoking, excessive fragrance wearing wifes of Intamin managers, who used to hang around the booth during several past tradeshows didn´t get a visa to the US?!

Maybe Intamin has so much buisness they are booked through the next few years and felt it pointless and counterproductive to try to sell any more.

You'll find Intamin at the IntaRide booth.

I thought I saw IntaRide on there, but I don't think alot of people realize that that is the American Branch of Intamin. I'm sure they're there pushing rockets and impulses and what not. Now if only someone wanted another Hyper. In the states, no less!

Clint, everyone who "needs to know" is aware who IntaRide is...;)
There was a COOL 5-minute feature on the trade show during Orlando-area 6 O'clock news...:)

Intamin is definately here. Every company currently designing roller coasters is at the show.

Maybe the Intamin reps were worried about the flight to Orlando in that they would have problems with the buckles or not fit in the small airline seats :)

When I googled IAAPA, one of the listings I got was the "International Association Against Psychiatric Assault." That could explain a lot. Maybe some parks have been going to the wrong convention all these years.

And I hear they may have had some new thing they were showing only to a select few...
But, then, that was from Screamscape;).

They had the same booth I've seen the last five years. Though there is no smoking in the Orange County Convention Center!
