The Tamis Corporation supplied a Tensabarrier line management system to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore for its recently-opened “Jones Fall Zephyr” train ride.
Thirty Tensabarrier posts were placed at the train station. This retractable belt and post system provides an efficient and clearly-designated waiting line for the ride.
The new $2.6 million ride, which opened on June 30, is a detailed scale replica of a Southern Pacific Railroad locomotive built-in 1863. The miniature train departs the station for a 10-minute, one-mile ride throughout the zoo. Maryland First Lady Katie O’Malley and her sons were the first to board the Zephyr for its inaugural run after a dedication ceremony.
The Tensabarrier posts at the station also feature sign holders upon which signs informing patrons about the line entrance and line direction are attached.
