Mel Taylor who is the CEO of Omnico Group said that the US consumers want technology to make their theme park visits more memorable.

For instance, 69% of visitors claimed that their visits would be better if they had real-time advice about weather conditions prior to opting for rides or attractions outside.

 

Another 67% of US consumers mentioned that they would prefer smartphone or tablet apps while booking rides or restaurant bookings and nearly 44% are in favor of touch-screen kiosks.
