History of the Industry

To know where we are heading, it's important to understand where we are coming from:

The Family Entertainment Industry grew from small scale theme restaurants and down from amusement parks to fill the entertainment needs for smaller markets or cities. From the humble beginnings, this industry has grown and evolved many times over.

Recently, and very notably was the creation and explosion of trampoline parks. These facilities have grown exponentially, beginning in the early 2000's through today. These parks have changed the FEC industry on a global scale. For in-depth information on the history of trampoline parks, see our article on the subject.
