San Fernando, CA (November 15,  2006) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global  leader in automatic wristband identification, will demonstrate its Smart Band®  RFID Wristband System during the International Association of Amusement Parks  and Attractions (IAAPA), November 15-18, in Atlanta, GA.
Smart Band wristband applications provide waterpark venues and patrons  with automated cashless point-of-sale (POS), keyless entry to hotel rooms and  lockers, park admission, and nontransferable patron identification, as well as  other customizable applications. The Smart Band wristband system consists of PDC  Smart Kiosks® and Smart  Readers® as well as third  party software and hardware as needed.  Smart Kiosk is an ATM-like booth with a touch-screen that allows  patrons to load money using cash, credit or debit cards onto the RFID wristbands.
Great Wolf Lodge, a family resort with  an indoor waterpark entertainment area, uses Smart Bands for cashless  payment, hotel room keyless entry, park pass and guest ID at two  locations—Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania and Niagara Falls, Canada.
"At Great Wolf Lodge we strive to offer exceptional customer service  and convenience to our guests," said Kim Schaefer, chief operating  officer of Great Wolf Resorts. "Incorporating PDC’s RFID wristband system was a  great way for us to offer safety and convenience to further enhance the guest  experience."
The RFID wristbands are also used at the outdoor waterpark Hyland Hills  Water World in Colorado as part of a  cashless POS System. Smart Band offers Hyland  Hills guests a convenient, hassle-free method of making purchases, and it has  increased in-park spending, according to Bob Owens, Hyland Hills Water World  Assistant Manager.
Douglas Bourque, RFID Manager at PDC, will present a session entitled "RFID  Technology for Amusement Parks: Increase Revenue Using Innovative Technology"  on November 14 from 10:00am-11:15am. Bourque will give a brief introduction on  RFID and how it benefits the amusement park industry. Success stories on the effective use of Smart  Band RFID Wristband applications will also be presented.
Demonstrations of Smart Band applications will be given at PDC booth  5853. For more information or to  schedule a press meeting during IAAPA, please contact Paula Moggio at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 818-897-1111 ext. 1330.
