From the Editor

We expected it, and it happened, but no quite as we anticipated. Our article last month on video, laser tag and paintball game violence brought responses – but rather than negative, they were all positive. In fact, a major trade magazine for the coin-op game industry asked and received permission to reprint it. If you missed our article, you can read it here.

This month, we have articles discussing a number of major trends that affect the destination entertainment industry:

  • The influence of increasingly educated consumers on the design of entertainment
  • Luxury for the masses
  • Faith Popcorn's insights on today's kids

We also share thoughts on bringing projects in on budget.

Also, don't forget to sign up for Foundations Entertainment Institute. You will gain oodles more knowledge from it than from a dozen of our Leisure eNewsletters, and all in only three days.
