June 07, 2013 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES - Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, creator of the world’s first all-trampoline, walled playing court, has officially announced the signing of a master franchise license for the entirety of Australia and New Zealand with Strike Entertainment. The innovative company behind the market leading Strike Bowling Bar concept is slated to bring 10 new locations to Australia, the first of which is set to open in Sydney this November. This is the trampoline park’s first venture outside of North America and with the latest expansion the company will operate in three countries.
Sky Zone currently has over 35 locations throughout the US and Canada, 30 additional under development and agreements to open 100 more in the coming years. Investing up to $25 million, Strike Entertainment plans to open a total of 10 parks across Australia over the next 18 months. Each park will offer guests high-flying activities such as Open Jump, Ultimate Dodgeball, SkySlam Basketball and the innovative fitness class, SkyRobics, which combines advanced calisthenics and aerial aerobics to burn up to 1,000 calories in 60 minutes.
“This is a huge milestone for Sky Zone and with this growth we will be the first US-based trampoline park to expand overseas,” said Jeff Platt, President of Sky Zone Franchise Group, LLC. “We look forward to partnering with such an influential Australian developer as Strike Entertainment that has a well-established presence in Australia and is sure to bring its expertise, knowledge and fan base to Sky Zone’s unique concept.”
