Lo-Q said Wednesday it secured a deal to install its trademark virtual queuing system at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark in Pennsylvania.

The Q-band - a waterproof radio-frequency identification wristband - will be used at the themepark allowing guests to queue virtually for slides without having to stand in line.

Users select their desired ride from self-service kiosks located around the park and are notified by their wristband when it's their turn to ride.

The product will be aimed at improving services at Camelbeach waterpark which has 37 slides and attractions as part of a five year contract.

Lo-Q's queuing system has been taken up at a number of US water parks operators.

The new deal marks the fourteenth water park globally to integrate the Q-band.

"Today's news is further testament to the strength of our Q-band offering and demonstrates its appeal to both large-scale groups and individual park operators such as Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark," Chief Executive Officer, Tom Burnet, said.

"Venues like Camelbeach understand that today's guests want and expect a premium park experience that includes limiting the amount of time they stand in line. We're thrilled to offer a product that allows our clients to meet that need within the unique waterpark environment and very much look forward to start working alongside the Camelbeach team."

Lo-Q shares rose 1.35% to 413.50p at 10:25 Monday.
