Gilbertsville, PA (June 6, 2017) – Scheduled to open in mid-July, The Park at OWA, an Alabama theme park, awarded its bid for a full-service entertainment software solution to Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc. 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,” says Steve Bell, Business Solutions Architect at Gateway Ticketing Systems, Inc. “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,” says Chad Klinck, Chief Financial Officer, Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority.
Bell adds: “As an annual visitor to the Gulf Shores region, I’m looking forward to sharing this exciting new experience with my friends and family.”
A world-class entertainment destination owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, OWA’s design celebrates its rural roots and the area’s natural beauty. The name OWA was inspired by the 14-acre lake at the center of this unique project. The complex will have the feel of a small Southern town that evolved through time with distinct districts, such as the Warehouse District, Downtown District and “The Park at OWA,” its Amusement District.
OWA amenities will open in phases beginning with the 150-room Marriott TownePlace Suites hotel opening June 2017 and The Park at OWA opening mid-July 2017, featuring more than 20 rides. Retail and dining tenants will begin welcoming guests in September 2017. More information on OWA and its amenities can be found at VisitOWA.com.
