AOL is taking its next logical step - into the land of theme parks.
As part of the internet giant's 'AOL Anywhere' strategy, it has signed a deal with Seagram's Universal Studios that will put AOL in kiosks in Universal's Island of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida.
Consumers will be able to check and send email from kiosks within the theme park during their holidays.
AOL is talking with other theme park owners around the world with a view to similar deals, according to sources close to the company.
AOL said it was part of its strategy to push internet access beyond the PC to consumer devices, but declined to comment on future plans for access within other theme parks.
AOL recently announced an agreement with 3Com enabling consumers to access AOL email over Palm devices.
In return for providing AOL kiosks within its theme park, Universal will get a branded page on AOL where members can purchase tickets to visit the park, as well as purchase merchandising.
