SYSTEMS: Locker Network continues water park growth
The Locker Network is continuing its expansion into waterparks with a new installation at the Coconut Cove mini-waterpark at Banana’s Fun Park in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The new attraction has 150 keyless, electronic lockers in a mix of family and standard sizes, giving guests a secure alternative to free cubbies that were previously offered at the park. The lockers were installed free of charge on a revenue share plan and provide Banana’s Fun Park’s owners ongoing revenue while The Locker Network takes care of day to day operation and management of the lockers.
The park offers multiple family attractions, including go-karts for both experienced drivers and rookies, miniature golf, an inflatable playland, bumper boats, laser tag, a 12,000-square foot arcade, and a café. With the addition of Coconut Cove, guests can enjoy a multi-level “aqua play center” featuring a 10,000-gallon tipping bucket.
Chris Burns, co-owner of Banana’s Fun Park said: “We contacted the Locker Network to assist us in providing much needed locker space for our new water attraction. The lockers installed look great, are easy to operate, and immediately began to generate revenue to our park even prior to the new attraction opening. A very worthwhile investment indeed.”
Marshall Ashdown, senior VP for The Locker Network added: “We worked closely with Bananas Fun Park to provide a custom keyless locker configuration for their new expansion. Guests love the simple to use, secure lockers and location staff have minimal involvement, allowing them to focus on their core business of providing fun.”
