Locker Network extends Herschend deal
Guest security system now features in four venues
Helix Leisure’s Locker Network has extended its relationship with Herschend Family Entertaiinment, installing in four of its venues.
With the recent installation of its advanced electronic locker system at Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, The Locker Network now provides guest security for four properties owned or operated by Herschend Family Entertainment (HFE).
The company previously installed and manages lockers at Dollywood and Silver Dollar City theme parks and Splash Country water park for HFE. Adventure Aquarium upgraded its old keyed lockers to The Locker Network’s keyless locker system, with a mix of single and family size lockers to accommodate guests’ secure storage needs.
Herschend Family Entertainment, the largest family-owned themed attractions corporation, owns, operates and manages family-oriented theme parks and attractions across the US. Its team of more than 10,000 employees creates, develops and operates entertainment, tourism and hospitality properties that currently span 23 locations in six states.
Located on the Camden Waterfront near Philadelphia, Adventure Aquarium is home to the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, including the only great hammerhead shark on exhibit in the US, is the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos, and one of only six facilities in the US to have Little Blue penguins as permanent residents.
It also boasts the longest Shark Bridge in the world, a unique V-shaped rope suspension bridge just inches over Shark Realm.
Brian Withers, guest services manager for Adventure Aquarium, said: “The Locker Network helped us by turning our lockers from a long-held guest negative into a guest positive by providing an incredibly user friendly and convenient product. They installed our lockers with almost no down time in our operating calendar, and the results we have seen since have been awesome both from a guest response and fiscal vantage point. I fully recommend them to anyone who is thinking about upgrading or looking to improve their guest experience.”
