Technology allows water park patrons to reserve ride times
MARIETTA, Georgia, USA /PRNewswire/ — Six Flags Atlanta Properties and Lo-Q plc have once again teamed up to introduce the newest technology in virtual queuing designed to shorten wait times for guests at the Southeast’s largest water park, Six Flags White Water.
The virtual queuing system, aptly dubbed The FLASH Pass after the popular system used at Six Flags theme parks, utilizes a revolutionary new RFID wristband that is lightweight and waterproof. Guests can use The FLASH Pass wristband to reserve a “virtual” place in line at the park’s most popular slides. When the reservation time arrives, guests enter via a separate entrance, avoiding the need to stand in line.
“Six Flags Over Georgia debuted the world’s first theme park virtual queuing system ten years ago,” declared Melinda Ashcraft, Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President. “It is certainly fitting that Six Flags White Water would be the world’s first water park to feature this exciting new technology.”
Six Flags White Water is open daily through August 14 while weekends-only operations continue through September 5, 2011.
