RFID stickers gives access to the water and the Theme park can make revenue on selling stickers and Theme park reusable bottles. In this way the visitors can bring home a “green” souvenir. The water stations, stickers and bottles can be designed to fit the Theme park. All machines are touchless, and easy to use. The concept is already in use in Danish Theme park Fårup Sommerland.
