When starting a new family fun center or other indoor party center business deciding on which arcade games (if any) to include is a decision that needs to be based on the kind of business you are looking to start. Depending on what kind of facility and target market you are trying to attract has a great deal to do with the kind of games you may want to offer. The industry has two types of games; Arcade Games and Redemptions Games.
Arcade Games are typically games that appeal to older children, teenagers and young adults. They include a wide variety of genre's, from first-person shooters to race games, riding games, role-play games and even some sporting and virtual reality or simulation games. They are typically found in arcades and most multi-attraction family entertainment centers offer some variety of arcade games.
PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT PRICING
When designed with the end-user in mind, indoor playgrounds can be a great value-add activity that will drive a strong return on your investment. Children love to climb and slide and offering a diverse, well design indoor play structure like this one provided by SoftPlay will have your end-users coming back for more.
Pricing is a unique process with regards to soft contained indoor playgrounds. The first thing you need to know is that 90% of the design work playground equipment manufacturers do for fun centers and children’s entertainment centers are custom designs. There is no charge (or should NOT be a charge for this process) as each design should be different from the next.... your business goals differ from say McDonalds and the Jumpy Jimmy place down the road - so too should your playground design. Companies that claim they will provide you with a “free” design are using marketing bla bla to get your business.

In just 60-seconds, we’ll show you how to plan for your business’s future without over planning yourself out of existence.
