I suggest the audio tour wands(?) be dropped off to the attendant at the pierside gatehouse, rather than making tired visitors carry them back inside the ticket building. I know it's just a few feet (50? 100?), but it's a logical and "customer-friendly" thing to do. Thanks for listening.
I did use the wand and did not mind taking it back to the ticket building. One reason for returning wands to the ticket counter is they need to keep any deposit IDs safe behind the counter. ( As I recall, I was not asked for an ID, which surprised me.) The above suggestion that it helps the Gift Shop is probably true and another good reason for asking people to return the wands to the ticket building.
Sorry, I never used the wand. The human guides were excellent and I preferred listening to them.
I believe that this is designed to get you into the Gift Shop so you can buy souvenirs; but only staff knows for sure. In any case; this type of suggestion might be better served by being posted on the BB62 website. Thanks
