Walibi Holland Announces Virtual Queuing Partnership with *accesso®* to Facilitate Social Distancing

As the Nether­lands Plans Phased Reopen­ing, Wal­i­bi Hol­land Looks to Empow­er Guests to Main­tain Social Dis­tanc­ing with 100% Vir­tu­al Queu­ing Program

ORLAN­DO, Fla. (May 11, 2020) acces­so Tech­nol­o­gy Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the pre­mier tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions provider for attrac­tions and venues world­wide, today announces a new strate­gic agree­ment with Wal­i­bi Hol­land, a long­stand­ing theme park cus­tomer locat­ed in Bid­dinghuizen, Nether­lands. The park, owned by Com­pag­nie des Alpes, already lever­ages acces­sos patent­ed vir­tu­al queu­ing solu­tion as a pre­mi­um ser­vice option and will now offer 100% vir­tu­al queue­ing to all guests to deliv­er reli­able social dis­tanc­ing when the park reopens May 25.

Last year acces­sos patent­ed vir­tu­al queu­ing tech­nol­o­gy empow­ered over 38 mil­lion guests to step out of lines at theme parks around the world. In light of the need for social dis­tanc­ing, acces­so will now extend its range of use-cas­es to spe­cif­ic deploy­ments around social distancing. 

We’re delight­ed to extend our part­ner­ship with Wal­i­bi to sup­port their social dis­tanc­ing efforts,” said Steve Brown, acces­so CEO. We have decades of expe­ri­ence in keep­ing guests out of lines and we are eager to help our cus­tomers and the broad­er indus­try back to their feet in what is still a chal­leng­ing envi­ron­ment. We’re excit­ed to be able to con­tribute as Wal­i­bi pre­pares to return to nor­mal oper­a­tions and wel­come back their loy­al visitors.”

Reli­able social dis­tanc­ing is a key fea­ture of our park when it reopens as of May 25,” said Mascha van Till, direc­tor of Wal­i­bi Hol­land. Acces­so is already pro­vid­ing us with its vir­tu­al queue­ing solu­tion and this agree­ment is a nat­ur­al evo­lu­tion of that rela­tion­ship. Our indus­try has a need which only Acces­so can meet at this time.”

acces­sos vir­tu­al queu­ing tech­nol­o­gy dynam­i­cal­ly adjusts to unpre­dictable vari­ables such as guest flow and oper­a­tional changes, allow­ing Wal­i­bi Hol­land to employ real-time capac­i­ty opti­miza­tion and real-time com­mu­ni­ca­tion with guests via their own mobile device.

Using acces­sos QsmartSMvir­tu­al queu­ing plat­form is quick and easy. After select­ing a ride or attrac­tion on their mobile device, guests will be placed in a vir­tu­al queue and a count­down will begin. When it’s their turn to ride, guests will be noti­fied to pro­ceed to the attrac­tion. Park atten­dants will con­duct a con­tact­less scan of the QR code on the guest’s smart­phone to redeem the ride reservation.
