The Season Pass Podcast is back for another episode from the TEA (Themed Entertainment Association) Summit and Thea Awards of 2015 (recorded in March 2015, at the Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim, CA). This episode is all about the STUDIES that generate themed entertainment destinations. Researching and analyzing the economy, market, feasibility, competition, demand, culture, and all the BIG numbers that support the logistics of a new park, attraction, resort, or complex. This is the Industry by the Numbers & the Big Picture for theme park development. Interviews with AECOM (John Robinett, Chris Yoshii, Linda Cheu, & Brian Sands), Pro Forma Advisors (Mark Dvorchak), Entertainment + Culture Advisors (Matt Earnest), Strategic Leisure (Michael McCall), and Integrated Insight (Joni Newkirk). 


Mixed in with all the business and numbers talk is a discussion on the new interactive immersive theater attraction in Orlando, Florida, called THE REPUBLIC! Learn more about this mysterious, multi-sensory experience, with the Creator, “Dungeon Master” Sara Elger, and Technical Director, “Rogue” Ricky Brigante


Brent and Doug also discuss the 2014 TEA/AECOM Theme Park Index. Enjoy!
