Each year, the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions (or IAAPA) holds an expo in the massive Orange County Convention Center showcasing all the latest products, groundbreaking technology, and new ride systems that are available to theme park operators. While the event is not open to the general public, theme park fans around the world look forward to it due to the new rides and attractions that are announced during the expo.
