#is 07.03.2014 | IS throwing back to 1996 for our first agent submitted report: Securing Amusement…
INDIVIDUAL: IS agent, I. Vamos with D. Mercer
GROUP SIZE: Currently unknown
NATURE OF GROUP: Employees of both Disneyland in Anaheim California, USA and Disneyworld Magic Kingdom in Orange County Florida, USA.
INCIDENCE OF SOCIOMETRY: Securing Amusement
Amusement Parks are meant to be a site of distilled fun and excitement. They lack, however, a degree of unpredictability often associated with thrill seeking. After paying fifty bucks to enter the Magic Kingdom through the front gate, the guest experiences a pre-dictable simulated world, sometimes entertaining, curious, or exciting. The transgressive tourist (the out-of-bounds-guest or runner,) however, spends no money jumping the fence and finding out what lies in the real heart of the parks: the off-limits service areas. One can entertain an unpredictable, adrenaline filled visit, while at the same time learning valuable information about how these things work. Read it >
This report was originally published in The Report #2 in 1996 by The Institute of Sociometry. I. Vamos was acting as a double agent for both IS and The Center for Land Use Interpretation
