Estimating the Cost of a New Theme Park Management System

Estimating the Cost of a New Theme Park Management System

As theme parks and amusement venues expand, their operations can become more complex. This is especially true if you are relying on multiple solutions from different vendors. When venues start off, they might not think of the scalability of their systems as an important factor. But during expansion, it becomes the most important factor! 

Operators who are looking for an all-in-one solution to manage their venue need to be aware of how to implement a migration with minimum downtime.

Tixera’s Change Management team has worked on dozens of migrations for amusement venues across the world and has crafted a streamlined process for efficiently executing digital transformations. 

If you are looking to migrate to an all-in-one amusement park management system, here are the most important things to keep in mind.

How to Digitally Transform Your Theme Park with Minimum Downtime

Pre-Migration Preparation is the Key to Success

Planning the migration is just as important as the process itself. A detailed analysis of the existing system needs to be done. The central question here is — what are the similarities and differences between the existing system and the new one?

Answering this question involves mapping the two systems and identifying overlaps and gaps. It also involves identifying any third-party integrations that need to be set up.

Once you have the map, a checklist of all the hardware and software requirements needs to be made to ensure that nothing important is missed during the transition. 

Estimating the Cost of a New Theme Park Management System

It’s possible to get an accurate estimate of the total cost of migrating to a new theme park management system and operators should expect the same from a vendor. Any additional requirements that you might have later will push the initial number up, but you should have a good baseline, to begin with. 

Ensuring Minimal Downtime During Migration 

The best way to ensure minimal downtime during migration is to execute it outside of business hours. The implementation and testing should happen in a phase-by-phase manner ideally when there are no guests at your venue. It’s also possible to identify off-peak hours and execute parts of the migration then. 

Getting Off to a Good Start with the New System

Apart from testing the system to ensure that everything is working, the vendor also needs to train your staff to use the new system. If the system is good, the training time will be minimal to zero! Your staff should find the system intuitive and easy to use. It’s also important to migrate your guest data from the old system to the new one so that your guest experience is not hampered in any way.
