Cool Planet Experience Awarded Top Global Honour in Themed Entertainment Sector
Enniskerry attraction to be awarded for outstanding achievement by international body, the Themed Entertainment Association
Ireland’s Cool Planet Experience has been awarded a ‘TEA Thea Award of Outstanding Achievement’ by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). The announcement was made by TEA on 19th November 2019.
The TEA Thea Awards celebrate achievement and excellence within the themed entertainment industry and are internationally recognised as one of the most prestigious awards of the global attractions industry – sometimes referred to as the equivalent of an Academy Award in the sector. Recipients are selected each year from hundreds of nominations submitted to the TEA Thea Awards Committee. Previous recipients in the category include Titanic Belfast, the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York and the Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter in London.
“We are delighted and equally overwhelmed that our project will receive such a prestigious international award. The Cool Planet Experience story began because we were frustrated by the negative, disabling narrative that existed around climate change and we wanted to create something exciting, educational but fun that would inspire our visitors to change their behaviour and become ‘agents of change’. This award means experiences can be fun and educational too,” said CEO Vicky Brown upon hearing of the win.
