TICKETING: Gateway wins Alabama park contract
Scheduled to open in mid-July, The Park at OWA in Alabama, awarded its bid for a full-service entertainment software solution to Gateway Ticketing Systems.
Gateway will provide its Galaxy point-of-sale software solution and associated hardware to the resort destination theme park.
The full suite of Galaxy solutions will provide all onsite and online ticket sales for the park, boat rentals and event operations; group and reseller sales; access control; retail operations, event management; food and beverage sales; inventory management; and customer relationship management (CRM).
Featuring 21 rides and highlighting the Rollin’ Thunder roller coaster, The Park at OWA projects attendance to be around 1,000,000 visitors annually.
“When The Park at OWA opens later this summer, it will offer guests a true destination experience,” said Steve Bell, business solutions architect at Gateway Ticketing Systems. “Working with the OWA team since the beginning of this adventure has been a great pleasure. We’re able to provide them with not only the technology they need to deliver on their vision of the guest experience, but also to share with them our experiences with other destination attractions to help add value to their offering. Everyone’s looking forward to opening day.”
“Gateway offers a unified approach that meets all our needs. Beyond the power of their solution is a stable company that truly lives its core values including integrity, accountability and customer care,” added Chad Klinck, chief financial officer, Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority.
Bell concluded: “As an annual visitor to the Gulf Shores region, I’m looking forward to sharing this exciting new experience with my friends and family.”
