A visit to a theme park should be an exhilarating, carefree experience, leaving visitors with happy memories of rides and relaxation, not hours spent in queues. However, visitors to the world’s top 25 theme parks spend almost one third of their time waiting in line.

accesso’s vision was to liberate theme park visitors to spend more time enjoying themselves. But the technical challenges involved in delivering this were significant. 
For their latest wearable device, accesso wanted to enhance their LoQueue virtual queuing solution by creating new ways to connect with visitors.

They needed full integration with their existing systems, exceptionally reliable radio communication and an intuitive user interface – all delivered within a year and at an ambitious price point. 
Durability and reliability were vitally important to accesso.

Prism is waterproof and can withstand up to 5 atmospheres of pressure (50m) and will operate for more than 250 consecutive days on a single battery – a world-record lifespan for a battery operated secure-element payment system with a touchscreen.

Unlike many others, the swipe-activated capacitive touchscreen is also operational when wet. 
Unlike anything else on the market, the accesso Prism wristband incorporates a touchscreen and three radios: Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and Long Range (LoRa).

This configuration eliminates the need for visitors to carry cash or keys or queue for attractions, whilst providing automatic photo location tagging and updates on ride times.

It also gives operators real-time guest journey data, providing valuable insight for operations, security and marketing.
