At the 2000 Summer Olympics, trampolining became an official Olympic sport. Since then, the sport has grown quickly—and so has the indoor trampoline industry. In 2005, there were only between 35 and 45 indoor trampoline park businesses. Today, there are over 3000 parks in just the United States—making this the fastest-growing segment of the out-of-home entertainment industry. As the demand for indoor places to jump continues to grow, the industry is expected to as well. SVIYA Group started to build trampoline from 1977, with small round trampoline, and in 2004, we began with big trampoline park, and the first trampoline park was sent to Miami.

Who is this business right for?

Anyone who loves people, adventure and having fun may be well-suited for operating an indoor trampoline park business. These businesses promise guests high-flying adventures and fun activities in an indoor setting.

Business owners often also need to either have sizeable savings, decent credit or a business partner who can provide financial capital, because the startup costs for an indoor trampoline park business can be high.

Also you need to find a right building or place for the trampoline park, becuase the lowest height of the building should be 17feet (which is around 5.2M) from the ceiling to the floor.And the location of the building is very important too.

What happens during a typical day at an indoor trampoline park?

In a typical day, a business owner will welcome guests, explain how to enjoy the trampolines safely and respond to guests’ requests. They also may help serve guests refreshments, prepare for any scheduled parties and clean the facility, although these tasks may also be done by employees.

When not interacting with guests, a business owner will spend their time scheduling and managing employees, inspecting and repairing equipment, and marketing the business.

What is the target market?

An indoor trampoline park business’ ideal customer is a family that has active children and discretionary income. Trampolines are a fun way for kids to burn off some energy while having fun, and a family with discretionary income can afford to bring kids to the trampoline park. Now the trampoline park is most for team building activities , like maybe company, enterprise and publick institition.

How does an indoor trampoline park make money?

An indoor trampoline park business makes money by charging guests a fee for a set amount of jump time., normaly charged by hour , some will buy member card, which is cheaper than by hour. Many also rent equipment (e.g. specialized trampoline socks, T-shirts) and sell refreshments, food, etc.

What is the growth potential for an indoor trampoline park?

Most indoor trampoline park businesses serve a single city. In areas where there is already at least one trampoline park, competition may be stiff. In cities that don’t have any, though, an indoor trampoline park business can fill a unique niche in the out-of-home entertainment industry. People from all over the city may be willing to drive to the trampoline park, because it’s something different, which can bring a lot of fun from not only jumping.

What are some skills and experiences that will help you build a successful indoor trampoline park?

Indoor trampoline park business owners don’t need any specific training before they open a trampoline park, but they ought to have strong communication skills (in order to clearly explain safety protocols), good customer service abilities and decent general business skills. Business owners who want to improve in any of these areas may want to attend a relevant seminar or a class at a local community college.

While it isn’t required, business owners may want to become certified service technicians. Getting certified as a service technician can help a business owner keep their maintenance costs low, as they’ll be able to perform a lot of the maintenance their trampolines need themselves. 

If possible, the trampoline park business owners could spend some time to learning from the current trampoline park,to see how they operate the park.

What are the costs involved in opening an indoor trampoline park?

The costs involved in opening an indoor trampoline park business are often high. Startup costs average in the low seven figures, because trampoline parks usually must be custom built. There are two steps business owners can take to reduce their buildout costs slightly, although they can’t be completely eliminated.

First, business owners should get quotes from multiple contractors. Business owners should contact several contractors that specialize in indoor trampoline parks and ask them to submit a bid. Obtaining multiple bids not only shows what different contractors will charge for the work, but it also gives the business owner several designs to consider. One design may be simpler than the others and, therefore, significantly cheaper.

Second, business owners can look for a building that already has a wide open space. Choosing a location that has a large, open area will reduce any costs associated with demolishing walls, counters or other structures that are already in place.

Some buildings that may be good locations are old industrial buildings and old barns. Both provide lots of open space and are usually in low-rent areas. Although they may be in rural or industrial areas, guests will usually drive to an indoor trampoline park business even if it’s a little out of the way because it provides a unique business.


What are the steps to start an indoor trampoline park?

Once you're ready to start your indoor trampoline park, follow these steps to ensure that your business is legally compliant and avoid wasting time and money as your business grows:

  1. Plan your business. A clear plan is essential for success as an entrepreneur. A few important topics to consider are your initial costs, your target market, and how long it will take you to break even.

  2. Form a legal entity. Establishing a legal business entity prevents you from being personally liable if your indoor trampoline park is sued.

  3. Register for taxes. You will need to register for a variety of state and federal taxes before you can open for business.

  4. Open a business bank account. A dedicated checking account for your indoor trampoline park keeps your finances organized and makes your business appear more professional to your customers.

  5. Set up business accounting. Recording your various expenses and sources of income is critical to understanding the financial performance of your business. Keeping accurate and detailed accounts also greatly simplifies your annual tax filing.

  6. Obtain necessary permits and licenses. Failure to acquire necessary permits and licenses can result in hefty fines, or even cause your business to be shut down.

  7. Get business insurance. Insurance is highly recommended for all business owners. If you hire employees, workers compensation insurance may be a legal requirement in your state.

  8. Define your brand. Your brand is what your company stands for, as well as how your business is perceived by the public. A strong brand will help your business stand out from competitors.

  9. Establish a web presence. A business website allows customers to learn more about your company and the products or services you offer. You can also use social media to attract new clients or customers
