The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards annually recognize achievements of excellence and innovations throughout the global attractions industry. The accolades received its name from a tradition dating back to the 1800s in which carousel riders endeavored to grasp one of the few brass rings located next to the ride to receive a prize. The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards are considered one of the global attractions industry’s most prestigious honors.
