Blackpool Pleasure Beach - Case Study
Extending the Wireless Network
Blackpool pleasure beach, the UK’s favourite tourist attraction home to the UK’s only Nickelodeon land and the world’s first Wallace and Gromit ride ‘Thrill-o-matic’, has teamed up with LoQ to get people out of the queues!
The Park required an extension to the existing wireless network to cover the queuing areas where the LO-q speedy pass solution would be required. The solution was expected to improve customer service and further opportunities for customer interaction.
Following a competitive selection process PW Wireless Networks were selected as the delivering partner for LO-q and the speedy pass solution. LO-q wanted to work with a single supplier with the ability to complete all works including on-going support to ensure ease of delivery and certainty of their solution moving forward.
Internal and external Unifi access points were installed across the park and integrated into the current Blackpool pleasure beach wireless network which now deliveres close to total coverage. The installation also required a hotspot and content filtering solution to ensure the park complies with guidelines on public access Wi-Fi, meeting all the legal requirements. During the installation a site survey was carried out to identify the best positioning of the wireless AP’s and the external and internal CAT 5e data cable routes from cabinet locations. The complete solution was rigorously tested and documented down to each individual cable for ease of support and maintenance moving forward.
