Witness the next REVOLUTION in group transit at the IAAPA Expo (booth 1982): REVO-GT.
During the IAAPA Attractions Expo, Oceaneering and 2getthere introduce REVO-GT: an out of park experience. REVO-GT is 2getthere’s GRT vehicle, a self-guided, driverless group transit vehicle, tailored to the requirements of theme parks and attractions.
The system provides a safe, flexible, low-cost, comfortable, and environmentally friendly means of transportation on a 24/7 basis – in virtually any weather conditions – with zero emissions. Its interior is climate controlled, and can maintain a comfortable environment for its passengers, even in extreme ambient conditions. Routes and destinations can be pre-programmed or passenger-selected. Bill Bunting, Director, Business Development, Entertainment Systems, Oceaneering, said: “The move into transportation for theme parks, campuses and business parks, even urban zones is a natural fit, and opens up so much opportunity to serve a broader market hungry for transportation solutions that are clean, efficient, cost-effective and, most importantly, safe and reliable. Oceaneering has been delivering those hallmarks for more than 50 years, and this is simply the next step in expanding our worldwide presence in the fields of technology adapted to solving what’s needed with what’s next.”
The REVO-GT was developed in partnership with Netherlands-based 2getthere, based on the 3rd generation GRT vehicle being introduced at Rivium (the Netherlands), Brussels Airport (Belgium) and Bluewaters Island (Dubai). “Oceaneering is very excited to be teamed with 2getthere to bring the REVO-GT group transit vehicle technology to the marketplace. We have had a long and successful relationship with 2getthere over the years, working on high-profile vehicles and systems for the themed entertainment market,” Bunting said.
The IAAPA Attractions Expo is the largest international trade show for the amusements and attractions industry, featuring 1,000 exhibitors, over 570,000 net square feet of exhibit space, and more than 35,000 participants. 2getthere’s partner Oceaneering Entertainment Systems is exhibiting at booth 1982, joining the more than 25,000 qualified amusement park and attractions buyers representing more than 100 countries who meet at IAAPA Attractions Expo.
IAAPA Attractions Expo was ranked the 22nd largest trade show in the United States by Trade Show Executive for 2016, with 2018 promising to be another interesting edition.
