Any business move must be carefully considered and supported by a well-thought-out business plan. The same goes for trampoline park business. Lately, the popularity of trampoline parks is on the rise, which is exactly why they are considered an extremely good business opportunity. The planning, implementation, and operation of the trampoline park itself can be divided into several phases that you can see below.

1. Choosing a location a trampoline business

When choosing the trampoline park location, numerous factors must be considered. The density of the population, for example, is a very important one. We recommend that the population in a 10-minute radius around the trampoline park amounts to at least 250,000 visitors, while the population in a 30-minute radius around the park should amount for at least 500,000.

Attention must also be paid to accessibility of the location of the trampoline park. The road infrastructure must be arranged, and the location must also be accessible by public transport. It is a good idea to have the trampoline park in the vicinity of shops, schools, public institutions and other infrastructure that will provide a sufficient flow of visitors.


2. Choosing a hall for your trampoline business

At the beginning, it must be decided whether a hall is to be rented as the premises for the trampoline park or built specifically for the purpose. If the decision it to have a purpose-built trampoline hall, appropriate must be found and contractors who will build and implement the construction; furthermore, numerous other factors must also be considered.

We recommend you enquire about local permits and legislation. In this event, the investment is much higher or even multiplied. If you decide to rent a hall for your trampoline park business, it is a good idea to guarantee a long-term rental agreement. You must check whether the hall contains all elements you need, and define what the hall will need in order to become operative.

It is best to consult the architects who will be able to help set up and modify the hall in order to make it suitable for the setting of the trampoline park. A parking place is also an extremely important feature for customers who will be visiting the park by car.


3. Conceptual design of your trampoline park

After choosing the location and the hall for your trampoline park, all your ideas must be collected and transformed into a conceptual design. This must include information such as the type of property, location and surroundings of the location, size of the hall, and height of ceilings.


4. Choosing a trampoline park supplier

Once the conceptual design is ready, the search for a suitable provider can begin. The best way to do so is to prepare an enquiry and send it to all chosen tenderers. Based on the enquiry and the information received, they will then prepare a transparent offer. The tenderers can then be compared and the most appropriate one chosen.


5. Financing trampoline business

In the event that the financial resources have not yet been definitively specified, you must do so now. Banks are very well aware of the health and trampoline park industry, meaning that obtaining a loan should not be an issue. When planning financial resources, you can also take into account the fact that trampoline park investments are generally recouped quickly.


6. Signing the contract and production

Once you have chosen the provider, it is time to sign the contract. The contract will cover all obligations such as deadlines, payment modalities, and an implementation plan. The production plans and instructions related to the construction technology and consumption of materials are prepared when the project moves to the production phase. Individual elements are produced.

When this phase is completed, the provider performs a test run of the park at its own premises and guarantees 100% control of the park. The park is then dismantled, packaged, and prepared for distribution.

As soon as the location is ready, the entire park equipment is transferred to it. There, elements are taken over by installers who then bring them together as a whole. Assembly takes between 10 and 15 days, depending on the complexity and the size of the park.


7. Certification and protocols

Before opening the park, the buyer must obtain the required certificates, and obtain fire safety permits and all other legally required documents. Safety verifications are also required. The buyer also receives a so-called handover protocol consisting of instructions for use, training instructions, and maintenance instructions.

Otherwise, they must also follow both local and international regulatory standards for park operators, visitors, and manufacturers. These standards and certificates provide instructions that are necessary for the construction and operation of the trampoline park in a way that will guarantee total safety of the visitors.

The most important international standards are definitely the European and the American standard for guaranteeing optimal safety of trampoline parks.


8. Launching your trampoline park

Before opening your trampoline park, you must guarantee suitable promotion. You need to consider ways of reaching your target groups and making the promotion as attractive as possible. With good promotion, information about your park will reach a large number of potential future visitors. Of course, you also need to make sure that suitable staff are employed in our park.

Every employee must be appropriately qualified and understand how trampoline parks operate. In addition, all employees must also be made aware of all safety instructions and know how to react in the event of any injuries or essential assistance which must be provided for visitors. You also need to take into account the rules in terms of how many employees are necessary for a certain number of visitors, and how many employees are required to carry out specific activities and programmes. The right staff will have a major impact on the good and, above all, safe operation of our trampoline park.
