Simulated Adventure

Consumers who crave change but are reluctant seek alternatives

Implications - Though adventure and experience are a bigger priority than ever with the rise of global communication, some consumers are still reluctant to spend the time and money on a short-term experience. Thus, simulated adventure located closer to home and at a lower cost serves as a great alternative. This speaks to the cautious financial attitudes of much of the population.
