At this year's IAAPA, there were plenty of awards to go around. Jake's Unlimited in Mesa, Ariz., won the Top FEC in the World award, while ICE won an Image award due to colourful games like the new Waterfuls at its booth. QubicaAMF won a Brass Ring for its HyperBowling concept, with Laserforce also winning one for its Gen 8 Infinity laser tag system. Hologate received the Best New Product Award for its Zombyte game, a ground-breaking first-person zombie shooter.
Australia's own Luna Park also received an IAAPA Brass Ring Award for "Most Creative Property-wide Event: Annual Attendance Less than 1 Million" for their participation in Sydney's 2018 Vivid Festival. During this year's Vivid Festival, the entire amusement park was lit up with colourful shapes and patterns.
