Virtual reality could be popular at theme park industry’s big expo

Often the latest inventions are kept under secrecy before being unveiled during the expo, IAAPA spokesman David Mandt said.

But IAAPA, which has 5,300 members in about 100 countries, is expecting some companies to show off VR “in new and different ways” based on what’s been happening recently in the industry, Mandt said.

The trade show is not open to the public.

Learning opportunities for industry members also take place as part of the show. For instance, SeaWorld Orlando will invite people to a behind-the-scenes tour for its Christmas show while the creators for the new “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will also talk about how they created it. Disney will also share how it opened Pandora — The World of Avatar.
