I just got home from the IAAPA expo in Orlando, and what I saw was an industry healing. And yet, as we pause this thanksgiving and look around the table, some seats sit empty. Most of us are missing loved ones this year, myself included. Last year, we dedicated our Thanksgiving special to Robbi Lepre, who had recently passed. Most haunts were unable to open at the time, and the vaccines weren’t a thing yet. We’ve come a long way, but there’s a still a journey ahead of us. But in re-listening to Robbi’s episode, it’s crazy how the sentiments from last year, apply today – maybe even more so. So today, I’m replaying last year’s special – a celebration of Robbi Lepre. Listen and reflect on where we were, where we are, and where we’re going. This special is presented in 4 parts. In Part 1 “Remembering Robbi: Lessons learned from a reluctant haunter” was written and performed by Scott Swenson. “Lepre’-isms” was written by Jeremy Pancoast and performed by Donald Kinsley. “The Future of Immersive Entertainment in The Post-Pandemic World” was written and performed by Ricky Brigante and Sarah Elger. In Part 2, The audio was taken from our 2018 event The Seasonal Attraction Leadership Symposium. Contributors for Part 3 are: Alex Crow, Chris Thomas, David Ruzicka, Dr William Ramsay, Martin Palicki, Todd Hougland, Samantha Grimaldi, Ray Kleim, Leonard Pickel, and Donald Kinsley. In Part 4, we heard from Cindy White, Kim Gromoll, Mike Wallace, Tom Geraghty, and Quan Gan. Subscribe: https://linktr.ee/hauntedattractionnetwork
