The Orlando Wet 'n Wild is a HUGE waterpark, I can see where this would come in handy. Very clever system. Wish it was a bit more "techish" and accurate but certainly useful none-the-less.
My sis got a notice in her employee newsletter that Wet n' Wild Las Vegas is getting the system in a few weeks.
I work at the first waterpark to ever have this system... Wild Rivers Waterpark, in irvine california...
It is currently operating in wild rivers, wet'n wild las vegas and wet n wild orlando... and is being installed at the dollyworld waterpark uin tennessee.
