The use of personal video or photographic equipment is prohibited for safety in all forms of advanced "rides". Solutions based on well established cameras, such as GoPro, are not compatible with the extreme forces generated during recording operations on thrilling rides.

The world's 50 premier amusement parks have over 250 million visitors annually. The forecast for total revenue of amusement parks globally is USD 46 billion. The company's management estimates visitors' outlays in the park to about 30% of the total revenue, of which about 10% relate to different types of photographic memories / souvenirs, which corresponds $ 1.3 billion. Total worldwide are about 4,000 roller coasters with circa 120 delivered annually
The company's solutions give the visitor an opportunity to immediately share their experiences on different social media platforms. At the same time, Ridercam's system enables the theme parks to communicate directly with visitors.
