Touchfree Security Scanners

New Touchfree Security Scanners are being tested and installed at Universal Orlando. These are the same type of bag and body scanners used at Walt Disney World. The scanners are able to distinguish between weapons and personal items when a guest walks through. Keeping us safe and secure. We just happened to be leaving the park today as they started testing, and got some photos to show. We have not heard anything from Universal directly yet.

Guests are able to walk through in groups or individually. When using these scanners, guests do not have to take items out of their pockets to pass through a metal detector or wait for a security guard to check their bag. These types of scanners can accommodate up to 3600 guests an hour.

Undoubtedly, the metal detectors and x-ray machines used at Universal right now work and do a fine job, but it is a choke point for crowds. Especially in the morning rush. During the pandemic, the lines in this area would bog down for a good bit of time.

We have not been able to see the scanners up-close yet, due to the testing on the opposite sides of the moving walkaway. It should be noted that Evolv Technology is the company behind the newest security technology being used. They have installed them in major sporting stadiums, Disneyland, and Disney World along with major events across the country.

As you can see in the photos attached, the new Touchfree Security Scanners were being tested. Right before the metal detector and x-ray area. These photos were taken headed in from King Kong, Jurrasic Park, and also Jaws parking garage.
