Lo-Q plc, the AIM-listed provider of virtual queuing systems for theme parks and major attractions, is pleased to announce that it has signed a three year agreement with Palace Entertainment, the largest operator of water parks in the United States, to bring Q-band, Lo-Q's virtual queuing wristband for water parks, to Splish Splash in Long Island, NY.
With its one-of-a-kind themed water rides, Splish Splash was voted as one of the Top 10 Best Water Parks in the US by Travel Channel and attracts families from all over the tri-state area. Splish Splash will open their 2012 season offering - for an additional fee - the Q-band virtual queuing system to their guests.
Q-band utilizes a revolutionary RFID wristband that is both waterproof and lightweight. Guests renting the Q-band can use the wristband to reserve a "virtual" place in line at the park's most popular slides using kiosks located throughout the park. When their reservation time arrives, guests enter via a separate entrance and scan their band to be validated and avoid the long queue. Splish Splash will offer two levels of the Q-band service for their guests to choose from, allowing them more time to enjoy the park and less time waiting in line.
Announcing the trial, Tom Burnet, Chief Executive Officer of Lo-Q plc said: "We are delighted that Palace Entertainment, the largest operator of water parks in the United States, has agreed to install our virtual queuing system at Splish Splash in Long Island. This contract highlights the strength of Lo-Q's ground-breaking water park product and the increasing interest in our solutions from all corners of the entertainment sector."
Fernando Eiroa, President and CEO, Palace Entertainment, added: "We continue to strive for the highest levels of guest satisfaction at every Palace Entertainment location, from water parks, theme parks to family entertainment centers. We look forward to implementing the Lo-Q technology at Splish Splash for our guests to be able to schedule their attractions and therefore increase the satisfaction level."
