Without a doubt, allowing dogs on the trails is one of the most enjoyable experiences for both our canine companions and their trail-loving human owners. For trail managers trying to craft an enjoyable outdoor experience that meets everyone’s needs, however, it can be a tricky balancing act. After all, how do you ensure that the safety of hikers and their furry friends is considered? The good news is that there are many things you can do to promote an enjoyable experience for all users while still following local regulations regarding pet use in parks and other public spaces.

Posting Rules and Tips :

To ensure a safe and enjoyable hiking experience for both dogs and their owners, trail managers should consider posting rules and tips for hiking with pets on their trails. These guidelines can provide clarity for pet owners, help prevent accidents and conflicts, and promote goodwill among hikers. It's important to remember that not all dogs are suited for hiking, and each trail may have its own unique challenges, such as steep terrain, wildlife, or other hazards. Additionally, pet owners should be aware of leash laws, trail etiquette, and ways to minimize the environmental impact of their pets. Trail managers can help create a positive and responsible hiking culture for all by providing clear and concise information.

At FYI Tags, we want to make posting and communicating with dog owners on your trails easy with our geo-target content management system. Contact a Visitor Services Coach today at hello@fyitags.com.

Are you a facility operator looking to keep your visitors entertained and engaged? Then, digital scavenger hunts can be the perfect solution! They are fun and exciting and serve as an educational experience, allowing participants to explore new spaces while learning about them. Imagine the excitement on their faces as they attempt to beat each other in a race to uncover hidden clues, solve puzzles, and complete challenges - all from their own devices. This post will discuss three tips for successfully running digital scavenger hunts so everyone involved has fun!

  1. Choose a fun theme
    One of the most important things to do when hosting a digital scavenger hunt is to choose a fun theme. This will help to set the tone for the event and make it more enjoyable for everyone involved. We suggest a theme that also relates to your facility and brand. Think about the year your facility was established as a fun place to start brainstorming.
  2. Make a list of items to find
    Once you have chosen a theme, you will need to make a list of items that participants will need to find. This can be anything from specific objects to photos of certain landmarks. Be sure to make the list as challenging as you want without making it impossible to complete. Don't forget to integrate rewards for finding objects like coupons or preview day tickets.
  3. Create a leaderboard
    A digital scavenger hunt is not complete without a leaderboard. This will help to add an element of competition and make the event more exciting. Be sure to create a leaderboard that is easy to understand and use so that everyone can keep track of their progress.

Planning a digital scavenger hunt for your facility is an exciting and rewarding way to engage with visitors. With the right preparation and effort, you can create a memorable experience for your guests. Choosing a fun theme, making a challenging list of items to find, and creating an easy-to-use leaderboard are all essential steps in ensuring everyone has an enjoyable time. By implementing these tips, you can host an unforgettable digital scavenger hunt that promises plenty of surprises along the way.

Have you ever heard the phrase, "This is how we've always done it?" It's the ultimate buzzkill for growth. As a young supervisor at a regional amusement and waterpark, I learned that firsthand from a manager who used it to shut down all my questions about our operating processes. Fast forward to my stint as Guest Services and Operations Manager. My goal was to give visitors the smoothest entry possible based on our standard procedures. I had everything planned, trained, and checked for our big Saturday. But within hours, our record-breaking attendance exposed major flaws. My team rose to the challenge with no complaints, and by day's end, we'd held it together. Hats off to my amazing staff, but lesson learned - sometimes "the way we've always done it" just isn't enough.  

A lesson learned early on: Invest in communication and team support for efficiency. I've improved attractions for 15+ years through tech, training, and procedure. So let's share some fun tips!
