Florida-based Feld Entertainment, a first-time exhibitor at IAAPA Attractions Expo, was looking to expand into the amusement and attractions industry. Their booth focused on two of Feld Entertainment’s largest and most recognisable brands: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and Monster Jam, the oversized truck competition. Feld showed two concepts.
One is the Monster Jam roller coaster, which looked a lot like a themed 20-seat B&M winged coaster. Grave Digger Freestyle Run will allow guests to experience backflips, corkscrews, saves, and big air moments that the real Grave Digger drivers experience in their 12,000 pound (5,443 kg) Monster Jam trucks during freestyle competitions.
The second has a circus theme. With circus elephants a thing of the past, Feld looks to break into the theme park business by offering guests the opportunity to dress as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey performers and characters of their dreams with interactive stations.
