A message from Jessica Mariko, DRIP founder:
Before opening DRIP on I-drive, I had an idea about the age range of the future guests but after we opened, I was pleasantly surprised by the wide age range of people who attended. Age was not the thing they had in common; they were all open minded. They were people who googled "out of the box things to do in Orlando" or "what to do besides the amusement parks" and found us.
85 yr old women stood besides 21 yr old men and high fived. Once and a while we hosted a children's birthday party, family affair or let our cast members bring their children to the show and I couldn't help but melt when I saw the look of awe in the eyes of the younger people. We created DRIP to bring out the inner child in adults so children felt naturally at home. It brought so much joy to me and afterwards their mothers thanked us for creating an educational experience for their little ones. (DRIP was not designed to be "educational", it was designed to excite people with things they have never experienced and therefore became educational.)
I thought, if a 85 yr old woman could stand next to 21 yr old man, then maybe they could also stand next to a 15 yr old struggling with their personal identity or a 4 year old who wants his white DRIP t-shirt turned into a cape? I'm not sure honestly.. but we only live once and we're going to try it out.
