Regardless of the size of space and budget available, a bespoke design means that the opportunities really are endless, allowing you to make the most of the resources available to you. Inspiration is often a great starting point so we’ve put together 5 x ideas to help you think about how you can increase dwell time and revenue.

Got a vast space that would benefit from ginormous treetop soaring play towers?…or a smaller space that would benefit from a themed play trail?

Have Space through the trees to install an exciting high ropes course that will cover its cost and generate excellent revenue in no time?

Whether outdoor or indoor, adventure golf is a great addition to any visitor attraction. A themed course will attract all ages. Whether you offer it as a pay-and-play attraction or include it within the overall ticket price, it’s a fantastic way to keep your visitors engaged.

With bespoke obstacles around every corner, the element of surprise creates that all-important excitement that makes for a truly memorable visitor experience, making them want to come back time and time again. Themed adventure golf makes for some brilliant visitor photo opportunities too!

3. Indoor Play   – See More

Got a barn or other out-building that you’re looking to utilise? Got some existing indoor space that’s just sat empty?…

Make the most of your indoor space with a themed indoor play attraction. Great whatever the weather, making it a go-to place for families all-year-round. Incorporate it with/next to a café and watch the dwell time shoot up – generating extra revenue from your food and beverage sales!

Theme the indoor play to the surroundings…share a bit of history…tell a story through the design…it suddenly becomes more than play, it becomes educational!  View Flavour Forest Case Study


4. Assault Course

Want something a bit different? Encourage people to get active…promote teamwork by adding an assault course. It’s a great use of outdoor space complementing the natural surroundings, tailored to the existing landscape.

Great for families and community groups…corporate teambuilding…add a dog agility course and even the family pet can enjoy the experience!


5. Sand & Water Play

Kids love sensory play and a sand and water play area can provide endless hours of fun. Incorporate it with a picnic area, situate it near a café, position it next to an ice cream kiosk… a brilliant way to entertain the family and increase dwell time.

Encapsulate it with a theme…perhaps a dinosaur fossil dig…construction site…and the whole roleplay experience comes to the fore. It’s also a great opportunity to add in some educational resources to enhance the play value.
