American Locker at Morgan’s Inspiration Island
With it’s line of Guest Lockers American Locker is proud to have been able to support Morgan’s Inspiration Island, a company that remains focused on carrying out their mission of promoting inclusion, in their dream of bringing to life the worlds first ultra-accessible water park. With over 85 years of being ’Made in America,’ supporting the community has always been part of our culture. As an extension of the uniquely successful Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-inclusive theme park, Morgan’s Inspiration Island includes waterscapes, a wheelchair-accessible water ride and multiple splash pads, along with extensive support facilities.
Catering to the needs of guests with special needs, Morgan’s Inspiration Island not only faces the challenges of your average water park, but the age-old parental water park conundrum of how to keep everything at hand, while not having to carry everything under the sun. According to Ron Morander, General Manager of Morgan’s Inspiration Island, the lockers are a big part of the experience. “Many of our families, both special-needs and typical, need a secure space for their items. Special-needs families tend to bring more medical and personal items for their loved ones. We’re able to offer the lockers free of charge to those families because of the generosity of American Locker.”
Another perk of the experience, according to Ron, was the sense of acceptance from American Locker, both of what they are, and what the team is working to accomplish every day. “We were looking at locker companies at IAAPA, and after conversations with representatives at that show, it became obvious that there was a comfort level and understanding of what Morgan’s Wonderland is and what we needed. The unique aspect of Morgan’s Wonderland and Morgan’s Inspiration Island is we are non-profit, not widely seen at IAPPA. Yes, revenue is important to remain in operation, but for us and our efforts to help those with special needs, it is a different dynamic.”
