Accelowait is a revolutionary virtual queuing system that lets you minimize the time you spend standing in lines for attractions at entertainment venues such as amusement parks and festivals. You can use the free Accelowait mobile app (available for iPhone® and for Android™) to send an electronic Robo-Buddy to wait in line for you at any of the venue's busiest attractions. Your Buddy sends a notification to your mobile phone when it reaches the front of the queue and becomes eligible for you to meet it at the attraction. Meanwhile, you're free to move around and enjoy all the other fantastic experiences the venue has to offer. And after you meet an eligible Buddy, you may send it again to wait at any attraction.

Accelowait made its successful debut at Firstlook Festival in October 2015 and returned there in October 2016 for another successful deployment.  Accelowait was formally introduced to the amusement park marketplace at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando in November 2016; see, for example, this coverage of Accelowait on NewsPlusNotes.

Accelowait has key advantages over competing attempts to deal with long wait times. It does this not by eliminating wait times, but rather by freeing you up to move around and do other things while waiting. You are not trapped standing in a long line.

Accelowait is Fair and Flexible

When used in high-throughput + high-attendance venues such as amusement parks, Accelowait makes every guest’s visit more enjoyable rather than giving preference to patrons who are willing and able to pay $30-$100 or more for the right to line-jump. Accelowait is completely and obviously fair to all guests who purchase an admission ticket: every guest gets one Buddy.

When used in low-throughput + high-attendance venues, Accelowait might be subject to limited access. Our queue management expertise can help the venue operator decide whether and how to ration access, e.g., by limiting Accelowait access to guests with certain types of admission tickets. 

Accelowait Understands Families and Other Groups

Accelowait elegantly solves many subtle problems involved in dealing fairly with groups of guests such as families and friends. Want to use the Buddy from Grandma's ticket because she's not interested in riding upside down? No problem. Want to share one mobile phone among multiple people to manage everyone's Buddies? No problem.
