Contactless Tokens

Tir Prince and Knightly's in Towyn, North Wales are now using a contactless card for their pay-per-ride tokens rather than individual plastic tokens:

Wonder how many more (if any) per-per-ride parks follow suit.

Quite high I reckon, as technology has grown, I feel like a similiar scheme will eventually end up replacing ticketed paid queue jump, sort of like how quite a lot of Disney parks uterlise the "Disney Magic Band".

Agreed, can easily see some of the larger parks using this system e.g. Blackpool or Winter Wonderland.

I honestly reckon this is something that Merlin will be jumping on the band wagon for as well.

Which attractions would they use it for though? Nothing owned by Merlin is pay-per-ride.

They could use it in annual passes though for quicker entry into the parks.
