Here are some of the features operators can leverage from the platform:

  • A digital park map, so guests can see where they are, what’s around them and easily navigate to any ride, attraction or facility.
  • Intelligent targeting of messages and promotions. Sending highly relevant content to visitors based on their location, time and demographics.
  • Directly selling experiences, add-on services and food & beverage from within the app. Apple Pay and Google Pay integration is available for frictionless payments.
  • Daily visitor feedback. Tracking guest satisfaction levels and highlighting the top areas to improve on.
  • Easy content and campaign management, controlled through an intuitive web-based interface.

“A mobile app is the single most effective way to influence guests, particularly once they’re on-site with you,” says Mark Locker, CEO of UK-based “We’re thrilled to be working with Merlin Entertainments to delight the millions of guests who visit their attractions each year.”
