    Six Flags Hurricane Harbor to get "Virtual Queue" system this summer

    Can't wait to try this out over the summer.

    Lo-Q to install Q-band system in ninth Six Flags water park - Proactiveinvestors (UK)

    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-Qís technology. Six Flags is Lo-Q's largest customer.


    Tom Burnet, Lo-Qís 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.

    I used this during the past summer at Six Flags White Water and it was alright. The system is kind of odd and not without bugs, mostly the boards where you make reservations not setting up the proper reservations. For the price, which was only like $15/person I would definitely use it again.

    I'm sure the tie to the retail system is a huge point of interest for the parks.

    And people think all this RFID investing by Disney is a waste.. hopefully news like this shows people that unless Disney keeps developing and trying to advance how they approach queuing and transactions... they stand to be left behind while everyone else does.

    The park has had a bracelet for purchasing food/merchandise for years (that we've used and LOVED). I know White Water was the first park to get this, I'm hoping they can improve upon the system with this roll out.

    We are going to the park on Sunday to get our passes (including HH) so I'm hoping we'll have a review of the system when HH opens in May.

    I'm really interested to see where Hurricane Harbor puts the Flash Pass entrances.

    The lines were already long enough. So now the new standby lines will be even longer. MM hasn't mastered the Flashpass yet so why would HH be any better.

    Thats why I'm going to have to get there right when it opens from now on...or it will be worthless going to the park since I think the lines are long enough from the last summer..this year is going to be worst
