Gecko Parx readies for opening
Best American Trampolines has fitted out the new FEC venue
Gecko Parx, a new 40,000 square feet trampoline and family entertainment centre, is scheduled to open next month in Weston, Florida
It will include a main trampoline court with interlocking trampolines, arcade games, two basketball slam dunk courts, a custom soft play playground for young guests, two trampoline dodgeball courts, and a multi-attraction pit that will feature jousting and a slack line.
The owner of Gecko Parx, John Duran, decided to open the facility after moving to Weston two years ago. He said that there was a noticeable gap in the family entertainment experience in the area and that a venue that appeals to all ages was needed.
“Gecko Parx will provide a family centre where young adults, teenagers, and kids can engage in various activities, from competitive to social in a safe and fun environment,” said Duran, who has more than 25 years experience as an owner/operator.
“We want a place where everyone in the family feels welcome and comfortable.”
Gecko Parx will also have a café with a variety of food and beverage options, including beer and wine for adults, and a parent’s lounge will be available to accommodate individuals that want to watch others enjoy the centre. There are also several challenging attractions including, a ropes course, a speed rock climbing wall that encourages customers to compete for the fastest climb, and a modular two-lane ninja warrior attraction with connected parkour course.
Best American Trampolines was selected to assist with the park. “Best American provides high quality products manufactured in the USA and offers a variety of customisable options. They stand behind their products and have a team of professionals to support the implementation of their products, which is very valuable”.
Best American worked Gecko Parx on the design and layout of the attractions, manufactured the trampoline attractions and custom ninja warrior course, provided support regarding project management, and completed the installation of the trampoline attractions and ninja course in less than six days.
The venue will offer a variety of events, camps, classes, and after school activities and will also have seven oversized party rooms and a VIP area for large parties and corporate events.
