In the first set of releases since Lo-Q acquired Accesso in December, the companies have announced that two major Palace Entertainment waterparks in the US will leverage the groups' combined technology solutions in 2013.

Raging Waters, California's largest waterpark, is adding Q-band, while Noah's Ark, the largest water park in the US, has begun utilising Accesso Passport's online ticketing.

Raging Waters located in San Dimas, California, is adding Q-band, Lo-Q's virtual queuing wristband for waterparks. Branded as the H2Go Pass at Palace Entertainment's water park locations, Lo-Q's virtual queuing system will be installed at nine of the Raging Waters top slides in time for the 2013 summer travel season.  
Q-band is an innovative waterproof RFID wristband that allows guests to queue virtually for their favorite slides without actually having to stand in line, allowing them to make the most of their water park visit.

Q-band users are notified when it's their turn and head straight to the front of the line using a separate entrance and avoid the long wait.

The Raging Waters deal follows last year's successful launch of Lo-Q's Q-band product at Splish Splash, another Palace Entertainment-owned waterpark, located on Long Island, New York.
Another Palace location, Noah's Ark in the Wisconsin Dells, has added Accesso Passport's eCommerce platform bringing the total number of Palace Entertainment Parks now served by Accesso to 18.

The online ticketing solution will allow America's largest water park to offer a comprehensive online shopping experience that includes advance sales of admission tickets, parking, meal vouchers, tours, merchandise, cabanas, birthday parties and more.

It also delivers increased guest conversion and commitment pre-arrival by integrating within a venue's current website and keeping guests engaged throughout their browsing process.
