Experiential Design + Realization

JRA’s in-house staff can provide all of the services required to develop an experiential project, from initial planning through opening day. That being said, flexibility is the hallmark of all that we do. Simply put, the way in which we work and the level of our involvement all depends on what each client wants and what each project needs. While we are perhaps best known for creativity, we are equally proud of our collaborative and flexible work process. We always strive for excellence and have been fortunate to receive several international awards from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA).
