Technology company offers free solution to social distancing at attractions

by Tharin White

When people return to theme parks, museums, and malls, how can we efficiently enforce the six feet of distance? Holovis may just have that answer, and is willing to give it away for free!

Crowd Solo

Crowd Solo is an app and management software to help crowded areas get as close to normal as soon as possible. It takes the guesswork out with an app that gauges guest flow and helps keep people apart.

Guests will download the mobile app on their phones and use it as the only way to book attractions for themselves and their families throughout their visit. By connecting every guest, the data presents an exact “state of the park” position. The real-time updates suggest best practices for guest management strategies. This way, operators can instantly act on information to improve guest flow and avoid unwelcome hotspots by moving guests to other areas of the park. With complete insight, situational awareness is maintained across the entire system.

By allowing guests to virtually choose their attractions before going to them the app can help keep crowds apart. This will help smooth out chaos and keep safety as the top priority. This system works in a similar way to the boarding passes that Disney uses for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Via Crowd Solo’s tracking capability, guests will also be made aware of their group’s social distance in relation to other guests. The system will provide both audible and vibration-based feedback responses to warn if guests are too close.

Peter Cliff, creative director at Holovis, said, “Our design and software teams are passionate about wanting to contribute to the industry’s relaunch and feel this could be a game-changing tool to help any entertainment or cultural center accelerate reopening plans ready for when social distancing rules are relaxed.”

You may have also read of another theme park advancement in the works by Holovis. Originally slated to open on July 4 this year, Legoland New York Resort had to postpone its grand opening to 2021 due to the current state of the world. Its highlight attraction, “Lego Factory Adventure,” was created in partnership with Holovis. Their technology will help turn guests into Lego Minifigures while on the attraction.

Businesses looking for a solution such as this can receive more information by emailing peter.cliff@holovis.com. You can also learn more about Holovis on their website.

The app description sounds like the old pre-show for Temimator 2 3D at Universal Studios

This might work for a small, or poorly-attended park, or one willing to drastically limit the amount of people let into the park to begin with. But if you think a park such as WDW or Universal would find this app makes their parks safe — forget about it.
