Find out why Two-Way Radio communications are so important to Theme Parks all over the world.

The next time you visit a Theme Park like Chessington World of Adventures (a Zycomm customer) take a look at how many Two-Way Radios you can spot. The quick answer to save you rushing out the door right now and jumping on the Waltzers is LOTS.  Why is this? Why not an announcement system or mobile network? The answer is simple-

Theme Parks have a requirement to provide a safe and secure environment for both staff and visitors, free from the threat of anti-social behavior, petty crime, personal assault and risk of injury is of course paramount.

However, reducing these risks while managing the efficient flow of visitors, staff and supplies is a huge logistical feat.

Core to the management of risk, containment of incidents, implementation of emergency plans and providing an excellent customer experience lays in the ability to report threats, situations and status quickly and efficiently on a daily operational basis, but most especially in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophe where access for emergency services and the safe and fast evacuation of large numbers of people through multiple access points will need to be managed.

The most powerful means to achieving operational efficiency lays in the ability for management and cross functional teams to communicate with each other reliably and instantly, anywhere on site.

Two-Way Radios offer:

  • Enhanced communicaions between staff
  • Lone Worker Facility
  • Hard wearing and simple to use
  • GPS Tracking
  • Long life batteries
  • Intergration into other networks and computer systems
  • Reassurence 


Typical uses of Two-Way Radio communications in and around a theme park include:



- Protection of staff and visitors
- Implementation of emergency plans
- Incident reporting and management
- Coordination of on-site events
- Management of support staff
- Streamlining of queues

  - Protection of property
