Amusement parks and visitor attractions remain a much-loved pastime in the UK, and continue to attract millions of thrill-seekers every year. The majority of UK theme parks are home to huge steel structures of mind-blowing height - and attractions such as the London Eye and Spinnaker Tower show off British architecture and construction at its very best.
The weather remains the one variable that is of course impossible to control and operators know only too well the impact that the weather can have on day-to-day operations.
UK summers are notoriously unpredictable and visitors can be enjoying blazing sunshine one minute and running for cover the next with a moment's notice. The impact of sudden high winds, lightning and heavy downpours need to be managed and carefully planned for. Skyview's weather systems are designed to monitor second-by-second real time weather conditions, and provide instantaneous weather data - to enable engineers on site to react immediately to changes in the weather to avoid specific dangers. Weather monitoring and assessing remain a fundamental requirement to ensure visitor safety and to comply with rigorous health and safety regulation. The reoccurrence of incidents at theme parks means that visitor safety has never been higher on the agenda.
As the UK's leading weather monitoring company, Skyview Systems has been enabling safe operations in the UK and Europe for over 25 years. We take our role in protecting the safety of millions of visitors very seriously and we are proud that our systems serve to protect over 15 million visitors every year to the UK leisure industry alone.
Forging long-term relationships with our clients, we design, install and maintain weather monitoring systems. Working with theme parks and visitor attractions alike, we understand that no two site requirements are ever the same. Our expert engineers undertake a detailed site survey to evaluate all of the key factors relating to each individual site or attraction.
