No reservations needed
More slots will be available for families. Reservations will be available for different size parties.
For example, MotionVibe will read something like the following:
Family Swim 5 Family Swim 3 Family Swim 2
Family Swim 4 Family Swim 3 Family Swim 2 Family Swim 4 Family Swim 2 Family Swim 2
An easy comparison would be a dining reservation: one person will make the reservation for the slot that fits the number of people they will bring to the pool.
