Morgan's Wonderland Effectively Utilizes Technology to Make Their Park Safer for Visitors


San Antonio's North Chamber Technology Council's CIO Breakfast met in July at Morgan's Wonderland to see how technology has improved the visitor experience at their facility. The park is a wonderful example of personal inititiative and philanthropy of Gordon Hartmam, many volunteers, and generous donors. While it caters to special needs visitors, the park has created an environment where all visitors can access rides and exhibits.
The technology star of the park is unique RFID tracking system that keeps tracks of all visitors. At any time, a care giver or parent who has lost track of someone in their group, can scan their wrist band at a location station and immediately find the rest of their party on a digital map. This innovative system allows families and groups to truly enjoy the park worry free.
More information on the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation and Morgan's Wonderland can be found here:
