There are currently over 500 trampoline parks nationwide and since 2014, the number of trampoline parks has doubled annually. Trampoline parks are one of the fastest growing and most popular franchises in the United States. In recent years trampoline parks have expanded to be total family fun centers, which include laser tag, arcades, and obstacle courses. As a healthy way to expand children’s energy, trampoline parks are growing in popularity as a top pick for kid’s birthday parties. The earnings potential is limitless and the opportunities are boundless. Before you jump in head first, there are a few things you should be aware of. We have put together a list of a few things to be aware of before jumping on board.
Be sure to do your research on the company you choose to invest in. There are several indoor trampoline park companies, and they are not all created equal. Some franchise companies are more than happy to sell you a price of the business pie and check in when it’s time to collect royalties. At Rebounderz, we assist new business owners through every part of the process, including setting up and opening day. We provide corporate support and we remain your go-to for maintenance of the trampolines and acquiring replacement parts. We offer on-site mentoring and we handle website management and advertising. All this leaves you free to manage the day to day operations and be a team member to your staff. After all, your success is our success!
The typical trampoline park guest is between ages five to 30 years. Although some patrons are over 30, it is not near as frequent. It is a good idea to keep this target demographic in mind when deciding the location. If at all possible, place your trampoline park in an area that is accessible to this age range. The most popular use of trampoline parks and family entertainment centers is for kid’s birthday parties, so all planning and efforts should have that thought in mind.
Find the Best Builder
A good trampoline park will have 50-60 attached trampolines in the main area that takes up about 12,000 square feet. This can support 200-230 jumpers at one time and should take up about half the space of the building. Experienced engineers and builders will be aware of this already.
The safety of your venue is based entirely on how well constructed the trampolines are. It is critical to making sure that the builder you select know what they are doing and does it well. Since the success of your new business is completely reliant on the trampolines, be sure to select the best builder. At Rebounderz, we can send a builder to your location and then inspect the equipment afterward. You’ll never have to wonder if it was built correctly!
Be Sure to Have Funding
This is one of the biggest causes of new business failures. Initial buy-in costs around 1.5 million dollars. This covers buying the business and getting it to opening day. Costs can build up initially before revenue begins to exceed expenditures. It is a good idea to begin with a little wiggle room. Try to lease the best location you can with room to grow. As with any family entertainment center, growth is key to gaining interest. If your startup budget doesn’t allow you to think about starting with things like a laser tag center or arcade, you can still take the estimated space you will need into consideration.
