Drew the Intern from In The Loop stops by to join Ed, Robert, and Ken to talk about Day 3 at the International Attractions Expo.

The human powered snowcone machine, the Ninja Warrior course, inflatables and what Fun Spot will end up with are all mentioned.

Two interviews finish out today’s show. First up is Yvette Whittaker, Executive VP of Operations at Falcon’s Creative Group, talks about how to battle screen fatigue, why Falcon’s stays in Orlando and the role licensing has played at Falcon’s. Then Lori Gunthorp of Ropes Courses Inc. talks about the new course going in at the Andretti Karting FEC, the Christmas Eve accident at Artegon, and why ropes courses remain so popular.
