    IAAPA Announces 2017 Brass Ring Award Winners Top Honors Celebrate Attractions Industry Excellence at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2017

    ORLANDO, Fla., US (Nov. 15, 2017) – The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) presented the 2017 IAAPA Brass Ring Awards on Nov. 15 during IAAPA Attractions Expo 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The annual awards recognize amusement parks, water parks, zoos, aquariums, museums, family entertainment centers (FECs), and suppliers from around the world for excellence categories including food and beverage, games and retail, human resources, live entertainment, marketing, new products, and exhibits.

    The tradition of the brass ring, a term now synonymous with spectacular achievement, dates back to the 1800s. Rings were suspended above carousel riders — low enough for them to grasp, but high enough to pose a challenge. Most rings were made of iron, but a few were made of brass, so grabbing the brass ring was a valuable treat. Skilled riders who grabbed a brass ring often earned prizes, including a free ride on the carousel.

    The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards are the most prestigious professional honors awarded, marking achievements of excellence throughout the international attractions industry. 

    The winners of the 2017 IAAPA Brass Ring Awards are:

    Best Theatrical Production: Annual Attendance More than 3 Million: “The Voice of an Angel,” Universal Studios Japan, Osaka, Japan; www.usj.co.jp/e/

    Best Atmosphere/Street Show Performance/Act:Violin Trio,” Universal Studios Japan, Osaka, Japan; www.usj.co.jp/e/
