Leading technology solutions provider, accesso Technology Group plc, have announced a five year agreement with Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels, Texas, to introduce the accesso LoQueueSM virtual queuing solution’s Qband device.
This is the first implementation of accesso queuing technology with Schlitterbahn Waterparks and Resorts.
From this summer, Schlitterbahn Waterpark New Braunfels will begin offering Blast Pass, a wearable virtual queuing solution designed for use in water parks. Guests can save their spot in line for the most popular of the park’s attractions at touchscreen kiosks located throughout the 70-acre park, with the RFID-enabled wristband displaying a countdown that notifies guests when it’s their turn to slide.
Darren Hill, Schlitterbahn New Braunfels General Manager, explains the decision to introduce accesso queuing technology: “We have considered a queuing solution for many years as we evaluated ways to further improve our guest experience. Our concern has been that the experience for both Blast Pass holders and our guests in line be handled with care. Blast Pass, powered by Accesso, will allow our guests to be able to enjoy more of our park and spend less time standing in line and we look forward to making this new service available this summer.”
Commenting on the announcement, Steve Brown, accesso CEO, said, “Destinations like Schlitterbahn understand their guests want an entertainment experience that maximizes their time in rides and attractions and limits the time they spend actually standing in line. We’re thrilled to partner with Schlitterbahn to provide their guests the Accesso LoQueue virtual queuing technology to enhance their experience in the park.”
