FEC: Creative Works ties up Whipples business
Creative Works has installed multiple custom attractions for Whipples Fun Center.
Whipples owner Jeff Carl contracted Creative Works to construct a jungle themed laser tag arena for the new Phoenix, AZ family entertainment center. In addition, Carl also purchased the popular Lazer Frenzy laser maze to help compliment his new 17,000 square foot facility.
“I had my own idea of what I wanted,” explained Carl. “So, I kind of actually talked with my sales rep, and re-picked and highlighted elements out of multiple themes to put my theme together. Essentially, I picked and choose things that I liked from different options that Creative Works had and we kind of built it from scratch from there.”
Since the first conversation in September 2015, Carl had been in constant communication with Creative Works, from the start of the creative design process to the finished product install. The end resulted in the fabrication and installation of Whipples’ custom 2,744 square foot, two-story jungle themed laser tag arena.
“Everybody within Creative Works, you can tell that they’ve been doing it,” stated Carl. “That it’s very systematic and they’ve got it down to a science to where they can come in, design your arena, implement your arena and provide it to you turn-key. I can just tell you that we get a ton of compliments from the work that’s been done.”
Moreover, Carl was presented with several learning opportunities that pertained to laser tag and FEC management over the course of this project.
“Definitely take advantage of the consultation provided,” Carl enforced. “As much as they [Creative Works] are a creator of environments, I would also say they are a teacher…They’ll educate you on the marketplace; they’ll educate you on basically what is considered a relevant laser tag arena. Because my fear was opening a facility and possibly being irrelevant too soon, so that was something I was really appreciative of is making sure that I stayed ahead of the curve on today’s market.”
