5 Things to Know: Temperature Check Kiosks Could Be Coming to the Parks

ORLANDO, Fla. — As Disney World and other theme parks reopen, new kinds of safety procedures are popping up everywhere.

In this On The Town Exclusive, we found out about one attractions design company creating a kiosk built for both safety and efficiency.

1. ITEC Entertainment is showing us a brand new touchless TempSafe kiosk that they've just customized.

2. So here's how it works. You walk up to a tablet that's attached to a stand and you put your face toward the screen. If your temperature is normal, a voice message lets you know. An alarm will sound if your temperature is high.

3. Right now, theme parks like Aquatica, for instance, are designating employees to take guests' temps. But Cohen thinks “a lot of that will evolve to automation.”

4. I asked Cohen about the next step. What about creating technology for thermal imaging to happen above guests' heads so that when they walk into a theme park, they won't have to pause at a kiosk? “We'll have this by the end of the year. Probably sooner.”

5. Meanwhile, the newly-developed kiosk can be programmed to detect the absence of a face mask, setting off a warning.
