How it Works
The process is this. Operating at pressures of 1000 psi+ Koolfog produces micron-sized water droplets that, while evaporating and turning to vapor, removes heat from the air, cooling the surrounding area. The dry fog produced by a Koolfog system reduces outdoor temperatures by as much as 35 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes even 100+ degree days comfortable. This ensures that guests remain in-park and generating revenue.
Queue Line Cooling
According to the Los Angeles Times, “With theme park lines only getting longer, parks are investing big money to make wait time less boring, more comfortable and, in the process, seemingly shorter. The efforts make good business sense because long queues are one of the biggest gripes of theme park guests.” Cooling strategies are a significant facet of queue line design considering queue lines are often situated outdoors. In addition to shade provided, incorporating misting into queue lines reduces temperatures significantly. Guests are more comfortable, and with strategies to occupy a guest’s attention, the perception is that the queue line wait time feels shorter.
