Alton Towers, a UK amusement park, has started offering a personalized movie to each park visitor who wants to chronicle their day at the park.
Families are issued an RFID tag that is automatically scanned and registered as they walk through the park. The RFID numbers are then used to collect any relevant surveillance video from areas and times when the RFID tags are scanned. Even on those high-speed rollercoasters, the video cameras use "super slow motion" to capture quality footage. The video is then assembled together into a “YourDay” DVD to take home upon exiting the park.
Every traumatic interaction with a park mascot, every meal on a stick and every painstaking minute of waiting in line can now be yours, starting at the low price of £6.99. Quite the deal.
