Automation of Amusement Parks and Entertainment Facilities

via BARS Payment and Access System

Automation is the Way
to Improve the Customer Service

You surely have a lot of questions about what is amusement park automation, how is it organised and why is it needed?

In its basic version, automation involves the implementation of a payment and access system. Its aim is to control the visitors' passage to various park facilities and payment for services. It sounds simple. You have payment points, you have access points in the form of turnstiles or an electronic pass reader (RFID card), and all this is combined into a system that covers all aspects of the amusement park.

The customer pays for the services of the complex, receives an electronic pass or wristband and can use it to use all the services – any rides and attractions, rental shop, catering or car parking. You, as a manager, can be sure that all services used by the customer are paid for, abuse is minimised, and the "human factor" is practically eliminated.

What is Payment and Access System?

BARS Payment and Access System, sometimes also called Ticketing and Access System, manages visitors' access to the facility.
BARS Payment and Access System connects all payment nodes, cash desks, mobile terminals on the one hand, and access points and turnstiles on the other.

Park management get full control over all payments in a "one-stop-shop" mode – payment for an entrance ticket and a ticket to an amusement ride, rental shop, parking, hotel and catering outlets.

How Does the Integration With the Video Surveillance System Work?

  1. Comparison of "SkiBars2" system data with video footage of real events obtained from the video surveillance system:
    - ticket sales (strict reporting forms/smart cards),
    - issuing/receiving equipment in the rental shop,
    - passages through the turnstile.
  2. Broadcasting of the video sequence of the event recorded in the payment and access system.

Use Bank Card or Mobile Phone Instead of Ticket

Bars IT offers new technologies that are convenient for amusement park visitors – a ticket may well replace a bank card or a mobile phone.

Bank Card as Ticket
to Amusement Ride

Visitors can use their bank cards as a ticket
to an amusement ride
  • Buy a ticket for the attraction without queuing at the cash desk. Payment is automatically deducted from the bank card according to the tariff plan.
  • Open a credit limit and possibility to accumulate % on the balance of own funds on the bank card.
  • Bonus card with the ability to accumulate and spend bonuses in the park.
  • No costs for issuance and maintenance of the card both for the park owner and the guest!

Mobile Phone as Ticket
to Amusement Ride

Visitors can get to an amusement ride
by using a mobile phone.
  • Purchase of goods and payment for additional services of the park using a mobile phone.
  • Mobile payments – the device acts as a payment card.

Accepting Payments for Park Services Using Mobile Terminal

Благодаря мобильному терминалу подключенному к ППС «Барс» вы можете принимать платежи не только на стационарных кассовых узлах, но и в любом месте.

Thanks to a mobile terminal connected to the BARS Payment and Access System, you can accept payments not only at stationary cash points, but anywhere. This is convenient for visitors, as an employee with a mobile terminal can move freely throughout the park.

The mobile terminal accepts any form of payment – with an electronic wristband, RFID card, QR or barcode.

The visitor can also pay for any services and goods.
