Tip: According to our experience, Variety will help you more success in this business. Never make single play element in your play area, for mini indoor play center, try to mix toddler area + play structures + climbing + building block etc. For EFC try to mix trampolinepark + soft play structures + Ninja warrior + climbing wall + toddler area + Pretend area + video game + snack and coffee area. You need bring few unique games like lit up wall, project games, fly slide, Big wall games, Air glide....
All size we mentioned is for play elements itself, In fact you have to conside party room, snack and coffee area, passage way, Washing room, receiption area, For example if you have place 1000m2 mean the play elements going to take 400-600m2 only.
Business Analysis on Place
Business Analysis on Place Business Analysis on Place
Step 1: For Mini indoor play center, Better have big mall around or near residentail area or make small play area directly in super mall.
For FEC better in warehouse which have clean height over 5m (16ft), For Super EFC the clean height we suggest is over 6m (20ft).

Step 2: Learn from your competitor, How much they charge how many player per week, Please notice the imcoming of Membership card, Birthday parties and Group events.

Step 3: Negotiate with landlord for a long term lease, You not going to move to any new location once playgropund be install, At least not in five years. Kids indoor playground is one-time investment, Only force majeure like Covid -19 can stop you busienss. To save trouble the rental rates need keep in same level in next few year. Change to new location will cost about 60% value of product itself!

Step 4: From the date you decide to take action untill the date open for business may take over 90 days, so get the rent-free period as long as possible.
