Technology advances, and the amusement industry is no exception. Over the years, technology has been integrated into amusement parks at a growing rate. Two examples is the in-park mobile app and quick queue devices. Now, it appears that one new product from accesso will merge the two applications into one. Announced at the 2016 IAAPA Attractions Expo, Prism offers virtual queuing, in-park messaging, in-park photography, and convenient in-park purchase processing all from one device. Guests will be able to stay informed while adding convenience to their quick queue device. Guests will be able to link a payment option to the wearable device to help streamline their in-park purchases. Essentially, those guests could then place their belongings in a locker and still can purchase food, beverages, and merchandise while enjoying the park. The wristband is water resistant, allowing for enjoyment in a water park during a hot summer afternoon.
“Untethered by a smartphone or rigorous pre-planning requirements, guests can now enjoy a carefree, hasslefree and waitfree experience when they visit their favorite venue,” said Steve Brown, accesso CEO. “With Accesso Prism, we introduce an improved way for visitors to enjoy attractions, and for attraction operators to offer more fun, more convenience, and less waiting for their guests.” Using communication technologies like Bluetooth and NFC, durable Corning Gorilla Glass, and easy-to-use touch screen capabilities, the Prism offers guests a new-and-improved park experience.
