Attractions.io, leading creator of mobile visitor apps, now provide a fully integrated package of wait time solutions to family favourite destination, Paultons Park. The attraction adopted Attractions.io’s wait time management solution last year, and are now also using the company’s digital signage along with the mobile app to give guests clear and useful live wait time information.

The popular UK theme park, Paultons Park, is now enjoying an end-to-end software experience to monitor and report wait times. Park visitors are able to get up-to-date information about ride wait times in the palm of their hand, thanks to the integrated mobile app. New digital signage around the attraction also displays accurate wait time information.

The wait time management system by Attractions.io tracks wait times either by manual entries from ride staff or through automatic updates using iBeacon technology. The software keeps a full history of ride wait times, as well as logging downtime durations and reasons. Attractions can make use of real-time alerts about downtime incidents. The software integrates seamlessly with both the mobile app and on-site digital signage, meaning that live wait time information is widely available for visitors throughout the site, as well as in the palm of their hand.

Up-to-date wait time monitoring and management

The software also provides reporting and data exports. Attractions can use it to explore topics such as the link between guest satisfaction and wait times; if weather affects wait time; and what are the usual downtime periods and reasons for each ride.

A spokesperson from Paultons Park said, “We started using the Attractions.io wait time monitoring system in March 2018. It has been an invaluable tool for both our operations team and guests alike. Guests can see at a glance the wait times for all the rides in the park and make an informed choice of where to go next, this also allows us to manage guest flow around the park. Our operations management team can also monitor the wait times on the web-based dashboard giving them an insight into how each ride is performing, allowing them to make fact-based decisions.”

“Any attraction that has to deal with wait times knows that the impact on guests can be substantial, and expectation management is key. We’re delighted that Paultons have found our wait time management solution to be such an indispensable operational tool. We’ve really enjoyed working with them to fully integrate with their digital signage solution this year. By providing guests with accurate, real-time information on ride wait times and availability across both mobile app and digital signage channels, we’re helping visitors to make informed choices so that they can make the most out of their day,” said Mark Locker, CEO of Attractions.io.

Attractions.io provides technology that delivers an improved guest experience. The company’s wait time management and monitoring systems are used by a number of leading attractions, including branches of Legoland spanning three continents.
