Maybe you’re skiing and you come in for lunch with damp gear.  Or maybe you get caught in a rain shower while walking around a city. Before you sit down for a meal or tromp through a museum, imagine how nice it would be to dry off.

Theme parks — typically more conscious about the complete visitor experience — are using people dryers (made by Haystack Dryers) to help visitors dry off after flume rides other splash attractions.

Seems like they could also be a great way for destinations to offer something that the skiers and tourists could really use.

The theme park models I saw cost $5, but why not let them be activated by RFID ski passes and city card passes for tourists?

Once upon a time, the pubic restroom was an extravagant convenience.  Time to up the ante. It’s not hard to imagine this product (or something like it) in every rainy destination and ski resort.
