WHAT IS A CO-OP?
A cooperative, or co-op, buys and sells products or services just like any other business. The difference is a co-op is owned and governed by its members, the people who use it, rather than by stockholders. And, profits are reinvested in the co-op or distributed to its members.

In nearly every part of the economy, people have joined together to do business more effectively —from food to construction equipment to childcare—through cooperatives. And now with the New Whalom Cooperative family entertainment.

Today on the international day of co-ops we not only suggest you become a member-owner of a co-op but become a member-owner of our co-op.

Do you remember Whalom's Tilt-A-Whirl?!

Do you remember Whalom's Tilt-A-Whirl?!

TILT ANNIVERSARY: On April 24, 1926, Herbert W. Sellner filed an application with the United States Patent Office for an “Amusement Device” designed for parks and resorts. His goal was to provide riders with “pleasurable and unexpected sensations” by swinging, snapping, and rotating them in an unpredictable pattern. He named his creation the Tilt-A-Whirl, and it became the most popular ride made by his Faribault-based Sellner Manufacturing Company. Weblink: bit.ly/2W0UYVJ

The fifth and final day at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018. We walked the trade show floor to find more information and products we can use for our project.

We had a great show and hope to apply all we've learned and experienced very soon. #iae18 #newwhalom

We received some bad news but not to long afterwards we received some potential good news. We visited our friends from The Gravity Group booth. We've been talking with them for a long time about the possibility of recreating Whalom's Flyer Comet rollercoaster. Pictured is their latest creation, the "Kentucky Flyer".

The third day of IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018 we walked the trade show floor and again reconnecting with vendors and old friends. We met the GM from Apex Entertainment in Marlboro MA. After the show we went to a live taping of the Attraction Pros podcast where we learned from the industry veterans on operations experiences. Another great end to a productive day. Pictured below we were asked to sign our names with our New Whalom Cooperative LLC name. So we each signed each "A" in IAAPA. #iae18 #newwhalom

The second day of IAAPA Attractions Expo 2018 started with the "Kick Off Event" which energizes the attendees with a look at all the great attractions through out the world's past year and the outlook to the future of the industry. Because IAAPA turns 100 this year they inducted 11 industry icons posthumously into the "IAAPA Hall of Fame". Then the trade show floor opened with what they call "10 miles of isles." We talked to a lot of vendors large and small. We attended the "CEO Speaks" hosted by member-owner Matt Heller. We came away with lots of information from the session and talked to the guest speakers afterwards. Another great day! #iae18 #newwhalom
