Theme parks set out to scare and excite us. But behind the fun, information systems are at work. What are they? This film takes us behind the scenes at Drayton Manor Park.
The theme park used to issue admission tickets using adapted bus ticket machines. Now a computerised system gives them much more customer information.
A trip around a haunted house climaxes in horror. Behind the scenes computers control every step of your spooky experience.
The park makes more money from selling you food than the price you pay for going on rides. A stock control system monitors every sale they make.
Sensors & Control:
With the Storm Force 10 water ride sensors check where boats are, feed the data back to a central computer and the boats are electronically controlled to prevent crashes happening.
Technology of terror!
The Internet and computer controlled turnstiles are bringing change to the theme park, but even more important are the bigger - and more terrifying - rides computers now enable the theme park to operate.
