Scales at Amusement Parks Allow Riders Peace of Mind

Posted on March 24, 2011

B-TEK Scales fabricates scales for many uses. One of the more interesting and enjoyable uses for scales are installations in amusement parks. These scales install peace of mind for riders and ensure amusement park safety.

The Clients – Various amusement parks

The Challenge – Pit-type floor scales with flush mount installation, avoiding a trip hazard, and used to gather riders total weight with no totals shown to meet ride criteria.

The Solution – B-TEK Scales designed a pit type floor scale with a traffic light indicator. The scale weighs four people at one time to ensure that the combination of the four does not put them over a certain weight for safety reasons. No weight is ever displayed; rather it’s just the green or red light on the light pole.
