Trip To Roller Coaster Heaven

2016 Golden Ticket Awards

September started off with an exciting trip to Sandusky, Ohio for the 2016 Golden Ticket Awards! We visited one of the greatest amusement locations in the world, Cedar Point, to attend the 19th annual event, which is also known as the Academy Awards of the Amusement Industry.

Cedar Point

The event features the best attractions throughout the world across 23 categories, such as the Best Steel Coaster and the Best Dark Ride, honoring winners elected through an international survey conducted by Amusement Today.

More than just an awards ceremony, the organization takes pride in educating people in the field of hospitality and amusement.

Award Winners

For over 10 years the event has also recognized college students who are employed at Cedar Point (or related parks: Kings Island, Mason, OH and Michigan’s Adventure, Muskegon, MI) and are planning to pursue a career in the amusement industry.

This event provided a great opportunity for the ThrillCorp team to connect with other industry leaders, suppliers and service providers in advance of International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).

As the locations and projects continue to push forward, these relationships will be vital to the development of the Polercoaster and SkySpire attractions.
