Hurricane Harbor

Post by galindoverhere on 2012-02-03, 20:35

(Screamscape Conirms) For the Hurricane Harbor Fans:

Virtual queuing specialist Lo-Q (LON:LOQ) is to install its water park system Q-band in another US theme park run by Six Flags, the world's largest regional operator.

Six Flags will install the system at the Hurricane Harbor Magic Mountain water park, which is next door to Six Flags' Magic Mountain theme park in California.

It will be the ninth Six Flags water park to adopt Lo-Q’s technology. Six Flags is Lo-Q's largest customer.

Tom Burnet, Lo-Q’s chief executive said: "We are thrilled that Six Flags has agreed to install our Q-band technology at Hurricane Harbor Magic Mountain. Q-band is one of our newest and potentially most exciting product lines. This additional park means that we are now gearing up to roll out the product into nine Six Flags water parks in the 2012 season."

Q-band uses a wristband that is waterproof and lightweight. People can reserve a "virtual" place at the park's slides and be alerted when the time arrives.

It a new departure for Lo-Q following the success of its Q-bot electronic queue management system, which it originally pioneered in theme parks run by Six Flags.

Lo-Q also supplies Q-bots to Legoland in the UK and recently signed a deal to install the system in
Legoland Deutschland.

In December, Lo-Q also said it was teaming up with MasterCard to develop a payment system for theme parks using its technology.

Shares in Aim-listed Lo-Q rose 6p to 233p, having risen by nearly 90% over the past twelve months.
Pretty sweet, huh? Wink

I heard of this technology before somewhere. I think it may have been Hershey in the last season or two that began implenenting it with the park and the Boardwalk. I think it's a great idea.

Wow, glad to see this! I know Hersheypark has this too. It makes sense. No need to run to a locker to grab money, or have wet money!

Thank you! I am disappointed there's no announcement for our HH beside the Lo-Q thing....

Don't give up hope just yet Knottsnetwork remember they just put up that gate blocking the old Flashback area which has been rumored for HH expansion for sometime now. Maybe will see something added in that area for 2013. I'm hoping they use the old Monorail area up to the old flashback area for a Watercoaster like Wildebeast at HW and have it accessible to both SFMM and HH

Very true, I'm not giving up hope just a lithe frustrated Mad
The old monorail area will be used as a service road for the new coaster. As for the Flashback area, that does look like the most probable.
