While in Orlando, I had the pleasure of stopping by Universal Studios while attending the MISTI InfoSec World Conference. To my surprise biometrics were used at the entrance to both of Universal’s theme parks. (See picture thumbnail to the left.)
These articles clarified that these organizations connect season ticket holders to their biometrics data to reduce ticket fraud. Luckily individuals who are entering the theme park with a non-season ticket do not need to register their biometric data.
Below is some video I shot at the park entrance. It shows the biometric finger swipe used on a mass scale. (Double click on the picture below to begin the very short video.)
