1. Identification of target market

The future owner of a trampoline park is faced with many different questions. Many of these will relate to future customers, a thorough understanding of which is essential to the success of the business. Customer segmentation will allow you to cater to each target group.

  • Who will my customers be?
  • What do they do?
  • What do they like and expect?
  • How to reach them?

All these questions need to be carefully analyzed and a subject of deep thought. They will help you estimate your revenues, not only from park entries, but also from ancillary services (special events, accessory sales, etc.). In this way, you can assess the profits and profitability of the business. Since the investment in a trampoline park is not the smallest one, you should expect a return on investment after several months.

2. Competitive research

Once you've analyzed your target audience, estimated revenue and profit, it's time to learn about your competition. It will be useful to answer the questions:

  • Who is my competition?
  • How does it do business?
  • What are their offers and prices?

Answering these questions will help you find a way to stand out from the competition. A trampoline park should be original, precisely tailored to the target audience. It is worth spending time considering a unique offer. The entry price should depend on the attractiveness of the services offered, the target group, location and current costs.

3. Solid foundations

Before designing and building a trampoline park, you need to take care of 3 key aspects:

  • Find an ideal location: visible, high traffic, with parking, far from similar entertainment outlets.
  • Choose the right trampoline park manufacturer - in this matter, do not hesitate to contact Global Fun Sports.
  • Familiarize yourself with the future work. If even the tourism and entertainment industry is completely unknown to the investor, he should not neglect training and courses.

4. Start-up and operating costs

To avoid throwing yourself in at the deep end, you need to analyze and familiarize yourself with all future costs. These will be essential in preparing your business plan.

Start-up costs will include the purchase of equipment and its installation, site preparation and other items necessary before opening a trampoline park. Operating costs will include rent, insurance, marketing and communications, employee salaries, and park maintenance.

5. Business Plan

It is impossible to plan everything, this is obvious. But in this business, meticulousness and a perfect plan are mandatory (e.g. to avoid unpleasant surprises).

A well-developed business plan not only helps you to organise your information and ideas, but also helps you to carry out strictly defined activities without deviating from your course. Not having a plan is the road to entrepreneurial failure.

Presenting a business plan is important when applying for financial assistance for investment. It should also contain good arguments that will convince future cooperation partners.

6. Marketing

Planning your marketing efforts even before the trampoline park opens will be an effective way to gain the trust of potential customers. It is worth taking advantage of social media promotion, influencer outreach, and industry events. Creating profiles on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and communicating through them are great for marketing purposes these days.

You should opt for marketing channels that will be suitable for the trampoline park. It is advisable to appear on review sites and preferably have your own website.

The use of materials such as flyers, posters and banners will help in promoting the business locally.
