Technology application of queuing area
1. Benign indication
At the entrance of the queuing area, what
tourists need most is to know in real time and accurately how long the project
is expected to queue from this location, how long will the next or remaining
performances start, or whether the project is suspended for some reason.
Therefore, the entrance electronic information screen can always get more
enthusiastic eyes than the door packaging, visitors, help tourists arrange the
next activity plan. It is similar to building water park, the same questions
should be considered.
On the other hand, when tourists see the
long queue time on the display screen and are hesitant, the amusement project
suddenly shuttles past. The atmosphere of fever and screams will make tourists
enthusiastic and join the queue without complaint.
The roller coaster project of Haichang
Discovery Kingdom takes advantage of this psychological hint of "looking
for plum blossoms to quench thirst" and turns queuing into an inevitable
choice for tourists. Science and technology function display and project
atmosphere display complement each other. The super long queue time notice
gives tourists enough psychological preparation, and the immersive atmosphere
reduces tourists' queuing complaints. The combination of the two has
contributed to the popularity of the project.
2. Multimedia interaction
One hour or several hours of queuing time
is common for popular amusement or visiting projects. Making good use of video,
audio, multimedia interaction and other means can greatly activate the
atmosphere of the queuing area, relieve the irritability during the queuing
period, and save the setting of rehearsal hall.
Take the submarine interactive ship in
Zhuhai Changlong Ocean Park as an example. After going through the winding
queuing area from the ground to the underground, tourists will see some
machines similar to the display screen of game machines. After the operation,
the curious people will continue to walk inside. The environment turns dark.
Suddenly, a string of bubbles with human faces appear on the large screen in
front of them. Tourists are often excited to see themselves. Of course, due to
the failure of some display joystick, many tourists feel sorry for missing the
More and more queuing areas will set up a
display screen on the ceiling or wall of the queuing area to play the visiting
instructions and use methods of amusement equipment, which greatly saves the
inspection time of service personnel and improves the efficiency of the
project. Some screens even interspersed with other new products of the theme
park, cleverly expanding the publicity channels.
3. Network interaction
Shanghai Disneyland's most popular fly over
the horizon project, too long queue, often complain. Therefore, the management
launched a series of QR codes in its indoor queuing area to encourage tourists
to scan the code online, participate in the network group confrontation, and
answer the preset questions. The design of the questions basically coincides
with the theme of the exploration in the area, and the quickest group and
correct answer will be immediately put on the ceiling of the queuing hall. The
tourists who took part in the answer were immersed in the questions for a
while, and looked up to see the answers. After a round of competition, they had
a good time, leaving the boring queue behind.
4. Comfort building
The queuing area is usually set in indoor
and outdoor environment, while theme park(similar to building water park) is
usually open all year round, which requires queuing area in winter and summer.
Although there are only a few dozen days of extreme weather in a year, as long
as the park is in operation, the comfort of tourists must be considered.
Therefore, high-power fans can often be seen in the queuing area to cool the
tourists; in recent years, more and more fog forest cooling is used in public
places, so some queuing areas are also equipped with fan combined with fog Sen
equipment; in winter, when the outdoor environment is cold, designers will set
a small number of heaters on the roof of the structure or the square to
maintain the basic temperature of the small environment.
5. Safety protection
After the comfort is guaranteed, the safety
problem will be accompanied. When the fan is running at high speed, it will
produce a certain frequency of vibration, so the fixed point is relatively easy
to loose. Therefore, an additional rope will be attached to the head of medium
and large fans. This is actually a fan safety rope to prevent the fan from
falling down and injuring tourists.
The fan is usually fixed on the side wall
or ceiling, and its height is usually such that an adult tourist can lift a
child on both shoulders, and the child will not be hit by the high-speed
rotating fan when the child raises his arm. There are also safety barriers
around the heater to prevent tourists from touching and scalding.
In the seemingly inconspicuous queuing
area, these zero and zero total equipment and details bring comfort and care to
tourists in this silent way.
