Dayton, OH, November 09, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Scene75 Entertainment is proud to announce that Scene75 Dayton and Scene75 Cincinnati have both been named finalists for the 2016 Top Family Entertainment Center in North America. The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) selects three finalists for the prestigious award each year. This is the first time that two locations from the same company have been selected as two of the top three finalists for the best Family Entertainment Center in North America. The overall winner will be announced at the Brass Ring Awards Ceremony during the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida on November 17th, 2016.
Jonah Sandler, Chief Entertainment Officer and partner of Scene75, explained how a locally owned family-business became the home of two of the best entertainment centers in the world, “I think being recognized as two of the top three family entertainment centers in North America is truly a reflection of the culture at Scene75. As a company we identify three things that set us apart from our competitors. First, Scene75 truly cares about the community. We exist to not only entertain but also to serve and improve those around us, from the immediate guest at the welcome counter to the college student aspiring to learn business to the children’s hospital several miles away. Second, guest experience is always a priority. We only accept team members that treat people entering our facility the same as they would treat guests entering their homes. Third, Scene75 offers high value entertainment for all ages to enjoy. We have a large number and wide selection of attractions in our facilities, allowing anyone who visits to find quality entertainment - from age 1-101. I am so honored.”
Both Scene75 locations demonstrated these advantages during the selection process for the top entertainment center. A panel of judges from IAAPA evaluated the eligible entertainment centers based on an application PowerPoint, community programs/initiatives, marketing materials, and entertainment offerings. An IAAPA mystery shopper then evaluated each of the facilities performance from the customer’s perspective; covering the pre-visit telephone call, website review, general facility appearance, staff hospitality, cleanliness, landscaping, attractions, food quality, state of repair, safety, guest service, entertainment value, and more.
Michael DuChene, General Manager at Scene75 Cincinnati said, “It is an honor to be recognized by the industry and our peers as two of the best entertainment centers in North America. I am extremely proud of both of our locations for becoming finalists. Now, we will just have to wait and see which facility is named the winner. But, regardless of the overall winner I know that neither Scene75 location will settle for where we are today. Our successes push us to constantly improve and offer you, our guests, the best experience possible.”
Scene75 estimates that there are over 5,000 family entertainment centers throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. For Scene75 to be two of the top three family entertainment centers on the continent is incredible. PinStack, an entertainment center from Plano, Texas takes the other finalist spot.
Team members from both Scene75 Dayton and Scene75 Cincinnati will be attending the IAAPA Brass Ring Award Ceremony on November 17th to represent Scene75 and hopefully bring back the title of the best entertainment center in North America.
