Al Othaim Leisure Turns to Intercard for Customized Readers at Snow City in Riyadh

Intercard designed and installed customized iWave Readers for Al Othaim Leisure’s newest entertainment concept, Snow City, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  The snow activity-themed family entertainment venue opened on July 13.  The readers at Snow City, based on Intercard’s popular iWave platform, are customized to address unique venue requirements: operational and cultural.  Operationally, guests pay at the front desk and are issued RFID cards that give them timed-play access to “warm areas,” which include locker rooms for changing into snow-appropriate attire, and “cold areas,” for snow-related recreation.  Culturally, the timed-play timer is paused and the arcade system is quieted for praying time, observing local religious customs.  This system “time out” provides a respectful atmosphere for prayers, and ensures that guests are given the full play time they purchased.  The RFID cards can also be used for equipment rentals, lockers and merchandise purchases.  With the completion of this project, here are now more than 30 Al Othaim Leisure sites using Intercard systems.
