World’s Best FEC Teams Up With Texas Digital for Signage Solution

  • Boondocks Fun Center recently expanded its use of VitalCAST digital signage to its newest facility in Kaysville, Utah. Texas Digital was once again chosen as the provider to deliver state-of-the-art information and entertainment to the facility, which offers miniature golf, bumper boats, two go-cart tracks, laser tag, arcade, 20 lanes of bowling and more. The Kaysville center opened in late 2009.
  • The Boondocks installation includes seven 47-inch vertical LCD screens: two at the ticketing area, two at the bowling counter and two at the snack bar, as well as one at the bowling vestibule. Additionally, three 47-inch vertical LCDs are in polished aluminum freestanding LCD enclosures, one double-sided unit by the entry walkway and one single-sided unit by the restaurant entrance. Four 47-inch horizontal LCDs show entertainment content by the dining area. All the screens run Texas Digital’s VitalCAST software, which allows pricing, imagery and other features on the displays to be updated automatically and simultaneously with a few clicks of the mouse.
  • “We loved the improved ability to communicate with our guests that digital signage has provided. It is a clean and dynamic medium that has allowed us to get rid of the messy signs that previously cluttered up our sales counters. In addition to keeping our offerings up to date, digital signs make it possible to better recognize groups, birthdays and other distinguished guests as they arrive,” said Damon Day, vice president of Boondocks Fun Center. “We chose VitalCAST because of the feature set, ease of use and customer support. We used a different digital signage application in the past that was not easy to use nor was it adequately supported. This experience has given us an even greater appreciation for VitalCAST and Texas Digital’s approach to digital signs.”
  • This is Texas Digital’s second installation at Boondocks Fun Centers; the first was in Draper, Utah. Boondocks will expand their digital signage usage to another location in Colorado in 2010.
  • “Texas Digital is pleased that Boondocks Fun Center, named World’s Best Family Entertainment Center in 2007 by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), has selected our solution to drive their LCD signs at another location,” said Dennis Davidson, president and COO of Texas Digital. “It is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of their impressive facilities, and we look forward to working with them on future projects.”
