One of Australia’s premier theme park destinations, Aussie World, selected advanced Wi-Fi solutions from Xirrus to provide high-performance Wi-Fi access across the entire park and nearby facilities. The new Wi-Fi network will offer all of the park’s guests free, fast and reliable Internet access and support internal operations.
Located on the picturesque Sunshine Coast, Aussie World contains over 30 different rides and attractions, as well as, its iconic tourist hotel, The Shed events venue and the adjacent Aussie World Retail Village. Despite the close proximity to Brisbane, mobile 4G connectivity at Aussie world is quite limited.
“At Aussie World, every action we take is geared to offer guests the best possible experience. We require fast, flexible and reliable Wi-Fi for our guests to enjoy and share their experience and for our staff to deliver services in the most time efficient way,” said Aaron Flanagan, Chief Operating Officer at Aussie World. “We have deployed customizable Xirrus Wi-Fi solutions that are upgradable and are unmatched in speed and flexibility, assuring us that we are prepared for the network demands of today and in the years to come.”
The park anticipates that the availability of fast and free Wi-Fi access will encourage visitors to post comments and photos about their experience directly to their social networks, which will attract even more park visitors. The Xirrus Wi-FI network will also support operational advancements.
After a competitive search, Aussie World selected Xirrus Wi-Fi based on the ability to empower a robust, reliable network for guests and simultaneously meet Aussie World’s operational needs.
Initially, the network will support free guest access throughout the theme park, as well as, front gate operations and temporary mobile point-of-sale locations. It will also enable further developments, such as the use of new RFID-based technologies to enhance the guest experience through streamlined purchase options and advanced ride analysis capabilities.
“Our goal is to put Aussie World on par with the most elite theme park destinations in the world. Xirrus networks has opened the doors to an entirely new realm of what is possible with Wi-Fi in the park and we are incredibly excited about our future. We think our guests will really be blown away when they connect to our Wi-Fi,” said Flanagan.
His view was echoed by Phil Tarbox, the Regional Director of Australia and New Zealand for Xirrus.
“Aussie World exemplifies an organisation ready to realize the full potential of reliable, fast Xirrus Wi-Fi. As well as fantastic Wi-Fi access to thousands of visitors every day, it also supports more strategic, longer-term objectives that will help Aussie World maintain its position as a premier entertainment destination on the Sunshine Coast,” said Tarbox.
