... other than turnstiles and door knobs

is the rapid entry exit system that allows your customers to enter and exit freely with out being further penalised by having to re-queue.
AVOID – Bar Surfing fraud - customers are arriving early to take advantage of concession prices –
exiting on a smoking pass and returning at peak times to avoid full entry charges.
BAR SURFING FEATURE – Tells you exactly how many minutes past their allowed exit time the customer has exceeded
and at what time they exited (up to 3 hours maximum).
