accesso Technology Group PLC, a leading technology provider, has partnered with Parc Astérix to deliver a 100% virtual queuing solution.
accesso is pleased to announce that guests at France’s popular Parc Astérix theme park are now enjoying safe, socially-distanced visits, thanks to its 100% virtual queuing system. The park is the second-largest in the country and is located outside Paris, where it offers a fun selection of rides and attractions set over six different worlds.
Parc Astérix is using the Filotomatix virtual queuing program for several of its much-loved attractions, which is powered by accesso’s intuitive Qsmart platform and the accesso LoQueue virtual queuing solution. This means that the park is able to implement physical distancing regulations, keeping guests safe as well as reducing the amount of time they spend waiting in line.
100% virtual queuing
The Qsmart platform is user-friendly and easy to use, both for visitors and operators. It can be accessed through a smartphone, without the need to download any apps, or by using the accesso PrismSM smartpark wearables.
This virtual queuing solution leads to a contactless ride reservation and loading experience. It also adjusts to variables like guest flow as well as changes in weather and operations. The technology means that the park benefits from real-time capacity optimisation and is able to communicate effectively with guests throughout their visit.
“In accesso, we are pleased to find such a forward-thinking partner to help us welcome back our valued guests with safety and security top of mind,” says Sebastien Retailleau, Directeur Général Adjoint at Parc Astérix. “With the introduction of Filotomatix, guests will be freed from physical queues and thus able to enjoy visiting even more of our attractions and shows.”
Dynamic and reliable solutions
The French theme park is the latest attraction to turn to accesso’s virtual queuing solution in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing. Just last year, accesso’s virtual queuing technology allowed more than a million guests to enjoy a more streamlined, queue-free experience at a range of attractions around the world.
“Parc Astérix is a truly iconic European park and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to redefine the experience for their millions of guests,” says Steve Brown, accesso CEO.
“Though the world has seen many changes as of late, our unwavering dedication to our partners and their guests remains constant. We look forward to helping Parc Astérix welcome back their guests with solutions that will not only help ensure a safer park visit, but also an improved guest experience.”
Last month, accesso announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Cuseum, in order to maximise membership management and visitor engagement for museums and cultural institutions.
