"For Efteling we created a magical app that delights park guests"
Efteling is the largest theme park in The Netherlands full of enchanting rides and spectacular shows.
Efteling is a theme park revolving around fantasy, magic and wonder. Attractions are mostly based on old legends, fairy tales and fables. The park has 5 million yearly guests and dozens of magical rides and wondrous shows.
Since the official opening of the Fairytale Forest in 1952 the Efteling has continued to grow at a rapid pace. Today they are a well respected international organisation while still maintaining a touch of magic in everything they do.
One of the technical challenges we faced during this project was making sure that the app is completely aware of the current rides and wait times in the park. Putting a good amount of effort into the communication with all involved parties was very important to achieve our goals.
And possibly the biggest challenge was to resist the temptation of riding those awesome rollercoasters a bit too much while we were working on-site in the park office!
"It was a great thing to be a part of the team that created the perfect solution for showing accurate, real-time waiting times for all the rides and shows in the Efteling amusement park. Maximizing the user experience of the guests that from now on will get a nicely timed boarding pass was great to build and wonderful to experience first-hand.""Egeniq worked together with several parties in this project. Internally with their business and product owners as well as engineers and the waiting-time system and ticketing machines." Jan Jaap Nijemeisland Project Manager & Scrum Master at egeniq
