The Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser experience at Walt Disney World, Orlando, is among the winners of this year's Thea Awards.

The awards – which were launched in 1994 – recognise individuals, projects, and technologies in the arena of themed attractions and experiences worldwide. Organised by The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), the winners were revealed today to a packed crowd at the IAAPA Expo, which is taking place in Orlando this week.

This year, 20 recipients were recognized for their innovative work.

Among them were Roland Mack, the legendary founder and managing partner of Europa Park, who was given the Buzz Price Award for a lifetime of distinguished achievements.

In total, there were 13 winners of the prestigious Thea Awards for Outstanding Achievement.

These included the 3D motion theatre experience, Chasseurs de Tornades, at the Futuroscope visitor attraction in France and the Jurassic World Adventure at Universal Studios Beijing.

Meanwhile, industry veteran Kevin Murphy was given the Peter Chernack Distinguished Service Award for his many years of service and support of the TEA.

This year, two people were given the Catalyst Award, in recognition of their individual contributions to the advancement of the industry. The recipients were Susanna Tubert, creative director of Disney Live Entertainment at Disneyland Parks and Resorts; and Chevy Humphrey, president of Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago and chair of the American Alliance of Museums.

Fri Forjindam, Thea Committee Chair, said: “Our field is constantly changing. Honouring these recipients from around the world highlights their success in bringing forth highly engaging visitor attractions and experiences in the leisure and travel sectors.
