The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that the number of children who experience accidents and injuries inside theme parks increases yearly. In order to avoid such problems, theme park visitors should be aware of the importance of reading the warnings and instructions and ensure that the ride regulations are met. These instructions are largely ignored. This thesis presents a novel theme park mobile application that aims to decrease theme park accidents and increase safety by ensuring that theme park visitors meet the requirements of the chosen ride. The NFC-based smartphone approach ticket system aims to minimize the waiting time for purchasing tickets, reduce the time spent waiting for ticket collecting, and provide a more secure electronic ticketing system by using the advantages of NFC technology. The smartphone application provides theme park statistics for theme park management teams, and immediate updates for the number of theme park visitors inside a theme park.
