Innovative Solutions to Deliver Safe, Clean, Fun
Taking to Facebook Live, Roth engaged with his guests during the quarantine period by doing social media shout-outs, playing games for prizes the guests could redeem when Scary Strokes reopened.
Additionally, Scary Strokes took advantage of Embed’s free marketing toolkits to aid in communicating the measures taken to reopen safely. “It is just my wife and me, we don’t have a marketing team,” Roth said. “So, when Embed offered the toolkits, it was really helpful because it gave us ideas, or I could simply copy, paste, and post the material.”
When Scary Strokes reopened their doors on June 19, few changes were made to their already extensive cleaning regime. The addition of sanitizing stations and required masks, coupled with rearranging the game room and dining areas, allowed Scary Strokes to ensure physical distancing requirements were met while still providing the ultimate family entertainment experience.
The changing landscape of the post-pandemic times reaffirmed Scary Strokes’ decision to go cashless from the beginning. “When Embed introduced the Mobile Wallet, it seemed like a good opportunity for us to jump in and see what it was all about,” said Roth. “There’s nothing not to like about it. It’s clever and very convenient; you don’t have to visit a kiosk or a staff member, you do everything from the comfort of your phone.”
The Mobile Wallet is a virtual game card that is added to the Apple Wallet and Google Pay wallets in the mobile phone, giving customers a fully contact-free payment and FEC experience. Guests have immediate access to their balance information, ticket counts, and more.
