If you’re thinking of starting an indoor playground as a business, better think again. Creating one that will definitely wow the kids and get their respective parents’ approval is not as easy as counting numbers. Building the coolest indoor play area in town needs a solid plan, serious groundwork, a budget, and a lot of research.
Tip #1: Check out competitors
The first thing to do is to conduct your research. Check your neighborhood and the Internet on the playgrounds nearest to your preferred location. Inspect each playground and take down notes. Jot down information about their location, accessibility to different facilities, the number of children it can accommodate, main assets, safety measures, construction materials, and flooring for you to have a basis for your indoor play area project.
Tip #2: Look at a different perspective
Standing out in the crowd can be achieved when you’re offering something that your competitors don’t have. So, if your competitors don’t have a jungle-themed for example, then you can get that idea and use it as your unique selling point or main asset. Or in the case you have similarities with your competitors, you will need to find assets that will make your play area stand out.
Tip #3: Do a survey
There is no better way of knowing what play equipment you need to install to please children and parents is asking children and their parents these questions. Do a survey or talk with parents and their children in daycares to know what is exciting for children and what worries parents the most when they let their children play in play areas.
Tip #4: Plan your space
Before adding any play equipment you have in mind, it’s best to plan out your space first. Think of this process as a Tetris game and the blocks are your play equipment.
