Ticketing system stuck in the dark ages...
Am I the only one who finds the ticketing systems for events in the UAE is ridiculous?
I had bought one of those deals on a coupon website to go to a waterpark but instead of just printing out the confirmation that was sent to me and heading off for a day of fun, I had to go all the way to Knowledge Village in Dubai to show the confirmation and pick up tickets for the waterpark.
What’s the sense in that? I live in Downtown and by the time I’d paid for a cab to get there and back I’d actually paid more for the waterpark ticket than if I’d just shown up and paid at the gate.
Then the following day I went to Cirque du Soleil. Having booked the tickets online and received ticket confirmation numbers on email I was astonished to find that I would have to queue at the venue to then have e-tickets printed.
What a waste of time and paper. Surely there must be a better way for ticketing systems to work where it doesn’t cost the customer time and money just to get entry to the event or attraction they have paid for.
