Gateway to provide entertainment software solution to The Park at OWA, Alabama

Leading provider of admission control and ticketing solutions, Gateway Ticketing Systems, is to provide a full-service entertainment software solution to a brand new theme park in Alabama.

The Park at OWA, featuring over 20 amusement rides, is part of the soon-to-open OWA leisure destination resort, owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.

OWA is set to open in phases, with The Park at OWA scheduled to welcome visitors in mid July this year.

Gateway will provide its Galaxy® point-of-sale software solution and associated hardware to the new 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).

“When The Park at OWA opens later this summer, it will offer guests a true destination experience,” commented 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.”

The OWA complex has been designed to feel like a small Southern town that has evolved through time. There will be a number of distinct districts with their own unique character, such as the Warehouse District, Downtown District and ‘The Park at OWA’ Amusement District.

“Gateway offers a unified approach that meets all our needs,” adds Chad Klinck, Chief Financial Officer, Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority.

Beyond the power of their solution is a stable company that truly lives its core values including integrity, accountability and customer care.”
