Massive indoor adventure park plans expansion in Tampa

Urban Air Adventure Park, the largest indoor adventure park operator in the world and part of the youth enrichment growth-focused platform Unleashed Brands, is expanding its presence in Florida with a new franchise agreement that will bring a total new parks of the family entertainment center to Tampa Bay. The fun centers include rock walls, glow in the dark mini golf, a cafe with indulgent snacks, indoor skydiving, trampolines, battle beams, a full arcade, bowling, go karts, and more. This is the ultimate birthday destination.

The agreement is a partnership between Thomas Garcia, an existing Urban Air franchisee who operates two successful parks in Albuquerque, NM and Littleton, CO and Greg Dunn, who has worked in the asset management industry for 25 years and was looking for a fresh investment as the next phase of his career. Dunn has known Garcia for years and was aware of the experience he’s had building Urban Air parks, including the popularity in local communities and the success financially. Having three kids, Dunn says he was drawn to the business model.

“Urban Air is innovative in how they developed and cultivated their attractions to make it different than the competitors. It’s a unique experience for customers and this business is not a fad. I like that it’s affordable for families and a repeatable experience that a kid is going to want to go back and do over again,” said Dunn. “This is a business I can feel good about owning.”

Under the new agreement, the first park is expected to open in Salt Lake City in the next 12-18 months, followed shortly by a park in Tampa Bay and another in the Salt Lake City region.

Urban Air is the largest indoor adventure park operator in the world with over 20 different attractions such as intense ropes courses, Urban Air’s Sky Rider, Battle Beams, laser tag, dodgeball courts, electric Go-Karting, obstacle courses and more. Every park also offers an easy-to-execute, state-of-the-art, fast-casual café.
