AI and Cloud feature heavily in new tech deployment.
Genting Malaysia Berhad has gone with Alibaba Cloud to deploy its Virtual Queue (VQ) Solution at Resorts World Genting’s upcoming outdoor theme park, Genting SkyWorlds.
The newly developed system will integrate Alibaba Cloud’s advanced technology with a reservation system for individual rides to provide a seamless and engaging entertainment experience from start to finish.
Alibaba Cloud’s VQ Solution is a comprehensive system that leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) and integrates five algorithm modules – Dynamic VQ Slot Prediction, Dynamic Gamification Management, Itinerary Planning, Incentive Recommendation as well as Crowd Analysis and Prediction.
The solution will also help gamify the Genting SkyWorlds experience by providing incentives to visitors, said Greg Pearn, vice president of Theme Park, Resorts World Genting.
“When Genting SkyWorlds opens next year, guests will be fully immersed in a world-class theme park boasting many rides, attractions, shows and experiences unlike anything seen before in this region,” he said. “Through Resorts World Genting’s partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the VQ solution will reduce the need to wait in line and allow more opportunity for our guests to enjoy their time at SkyWorlds and beyond within the resort.”
The VQ solution will allow visitors to plan their entire theme park experience from start to finish even before they reach the location. Visitors will be able to download the Genting SkyWorlds’ VQ Mobile App and purchase their tickets online at their convenience.
Once the tickets are booked, the VQ Mobile App will allow visitors to plan their itinerary or provide them with an alternative optimised recommended itinerary to offer them a customised experience based on their preferences.
By continuously evaluating the supply and demand for each attraction, the Alibaba Cloud VQ Solution will allow visitors to see available VQ slots and the waiting period for each ride in real-time. It will also enable them to advance to the fast lane and skip queues. Visitors will also receive a recommended itinerary which offer suggestions on suitable attractions they can enjoy while waiting for their turn.
Visitors who purchase their tickets offline can download this app upon their arrival or use the VQ kiosks within the theme park to enjoy a similar experience.
The new VQ Solution will also allow Genting SkyWorlds to generate incentives to help divert patrons away from overcrowded areas to non-ride attractions and facilities, such as eateries and retail malls. Incentives will also be provided to visitors who continue to use the VQ Mobile App to reserve VQ slots and follow the recommended itineraries.
