Now thrill seekers can enjoy maximum confidence at amusement parks with minimum risk of theft or loss of small valuables. While lockers provide storage for incidentals and larger items, people gain peace of mind when they can safely strap cells, cash, cards, keys and IDs onto their bodies. PortaPocket® offers waterproof wearables that are lightweight, comfy, and more versatile than a fanny pack. These multi-tasking problem-solvers are safer alternatives to pockets in clothes, and bring multiple benefits for both guests and park staff, alike.
Chicago – January 25, 2017 In this age of cellphone proliferation, people require more practical answers for the lack of functional pockets in clothing. This is especially true when people visit theme parks and attractions, and want to keep their smartphones with them. PortaPocket, by Undercover Solutions LLC has created a safe, streamlined solution to stow small electronics and other essentials for people on the go. The company joined IAAPA in January, 2017 to focus on the needs of the amusement park industry and the modern park-goer.
