Join us as we reveal the phenomenal energy and meticulous planning involved in orchestrating this large-scale spectacle that sets the benchmark for event industry best practices. We also explore the grand opening of an intriguing new Crane Attraction, Gotcha, nestled in Flushing Queens. This impressive venue houses a mammoth 8,700 square feet of crane games replete with anime figurines, gundam kits, plushies, and even snacks, not to mention an Asian-inspired cocktail bar brimming with a captivating range of ingredients.

Cruise lovers, brace yourselves for the Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest marvel, the Haven. More than just a ship, it’s a floating theme park boasting two-story suites, an adults-only area, an aqua slide coaster, a ten-story free fall, and an infinity pool. Still thirsting for more adventure? We venture into Luna Park’s groundbreaking immersive experience, Dream Circus, leveraging state-of-the-art technologies like 360-degree projections, surround sound, and holograms for a truly unique experience. Stayed tuned, because we also have exclusive conversations lined up with Drew Tewksbury from McGowan Allied on dealing with active shooters, and David Allen for a behind-the-scenes look at his centre in our  new podcast, Behind Our Doors. Be prepared to be utterly fascinated by this eclectic mix of discussions on the leisure and entertainment industry.
