Lakeside Piloting Barcodes on Passes

Posted on March 01, 2018

To help with the tracking and evaluation of our Chautauqua program, Lakeside is exploring the option of using barcodes on Chautauqua Passes to track attendance at the gates, Hoover Auditorium, the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus and other Chautauqua programs.

For this year, the summer of 2018, guests will begin to see barcodes on their Daily and Season Chautauqua Passes. However, these barcodes will have no immediate effect on our guests. Passes will still need to be shown upon entering the gates, Hoover Auditorium and the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus, but the barcodes will not be scanned this year. Lakeside will be internally testing them this year with the plan of implementing the barcode system in 2019.

The purpose of testing the barcodes this year is so that Lakeside has a better idea of which features can be used for the next season. For example, there are possibilities of offering convenience features to frequent and seasonal guests, such as mobile tickets.

Lakeside thanks all of our residents and guests for their patience and cooperation as we take steps to better serve and meet our guests’ expectations moving forward.
