Lo-Q wins German park contract
UK-based virtual queuing systems powerhouse Lo-Q has won a contract to install its Q-bot electronic queue management platform at Legoland Deutschland, Germany.
The three-year contract will see the firm implement the system in time for the attraction's 2012 opening on March 30.
The agreement follows the success of the company's systems at two other Merlin Entertainment sites, Legoland Windsor in the UK and Heide Park, also in Germany.
Upon announcing the deal, Lo-Q chief executive, Tom Burnet, said: "For us, this decision marks another important vote of confidence in the value and capability of our technology."
The Q-bot is a hand-held device which allows visitors to reserve their time on a ride without having to physically stand in the queue.
The innovative product enables park operators to maximise the revenue they can generate at their parks, freeing up visitors to enjoy other attractions, eat at one of the many restaurants and use other services rather than standing in line.
