Are you thinking of opening a trampoline park?
Here you can explore some of the key stages in bringing your project to fruition with the expertise of Play In Business.
Did you know that the first trampoline was invented by George Nissen in the 1930s?
Originally, trampolines were exclusively used for sports, primarily by gymnasts during their training and performances.
Over time, championships were created in 1964 and trampoline competitions were organised. This is where this sport developed over the decades: it was even included in the Tokyo Olympic Games as an official discipline.
In 2004, the first trampoline park was created in the United States by Sky Zone.
It took about another decade for this trend to cross the Atlantic Ocean and establish itself in Europe.
Today, the phenomenon of trampoline parks is experiencing global growth, with over 1500 parks spread across the globe. In France, numerous parks have emerged, attracting an ever-enthusiastic clientele.
The trampoline industry has met the growing demands for safety, making these spaces reliable and secure entertainment venues.
That’s why opening a trampoline park represents much more than a simple opportunity. It’s a true leap towards success, a unique chance to captivate an audience in search of memorable and secure experiences.
