NEWS/Quick-Takes
When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing
Book by Daniel H. Pink
Brad’s take: The book is a quick read that I didn’t completely enjoy, but there were some valuable takeaways. The chapter about the importance of endings was interesting and directly applied to attractions. “Endings are very important. Several studies have shown that experiences are judged by their ending. Peaks and endings are most prominently remembered. Just look at Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews. Signaling an ending can make people appreciate things more. For example, in a chocolate taste test, participants enjoyed the last chocolate more when told it was the last chocolate, even though it was exactly the same as the other chocolates. How can you make your attraction’s finale extra special?”
