Did Your Guest Leave Their Brain in the Car? Contingency Planning for Park Operations

Session Description

McGowan Allied partners deeply with IAAPA and industry partners to help park owners run fun, safe and profitable businesses. A key ingredient in this is ensuring our guests safety while maximizing their fun and enjoyment during their visit. For that to happen, park owners and operators need to set the conditions and plan for contingencies, (“what could go wrong?”).

And yet, our guests play a huge role in ensuring their own safety – from listening to instructions, reading the safety signage and abiding by park rules, there is an expectation that our guests conduct themselves in a safe manner. But what do you do when out of sheer excitement or the hustle and bustle of getting the family out of the house your guest leaves their brain in the car?
