Listen to the experiences of others who have moved to Spain
We are delighted to bring to the market and offer our clients the quite rare opportunity to acquire, at a very sensible and realistic price, this long established, popular and profitable quality Children’s Adventure Activity Centre which is the only themed park in the area. The British owners who started the business from scratch back in 2008 just as Spain and particularly the Costa del Sol was entering what turned out to be a long financial crisis, not only survived but through hard work and diligence combined with a very strong business model created and developed a successful business that today enjoys a massive social media following coupled with a huge amount of word of mouth recommendations which generate regular repeat custom without the need for expensive advertising. It is the preferred childrens venue (average age of 8 years) for many public and private schools that are situated just a short travelling distance from this easily located centre that offers plenty of parking for visitors. New owners will certainly acquire a business as a turnkey going concern and one that possesses lots of goodwill and further expansion potential. The owners, who have decided after nearly 9 years of operating the business to seek new challenges in life, offer new owners a period of support in order to settle in to the business and show them the ropes as it is important to them that the business continues to be a success, they have also offered to be available to give advice, if required, for a continued period following transfer. The sizable unit incorporating the custom built adventure park is fully air-conditioned. To buy the childrens play park that is included in this sale would cost around 150.000 euros, it was imported from Canada and incorporates many quality features for the children to enjoy. The internal space also offers a fully tiled cold kitchen and two toilets, one of which is adapted to accommodate mobility restricted persons. The business is fully licensed for this activity which includes the sale of food and drink including alcohol. The license permits 95 persons inside. There is also a large outdoor seating and BBQ area that could accommodate 60 people easily. Parents and guardians are encouraged to participate and interact with the kids activities and with a licensed bar facility it certainly is the ideal venue to cater for family parties. With a predominate catholic population the hosting of after first Communion celebrations are a particularly popular and lucrative side of the business as of course are birthday parties. It is important for interested parties to note that many of the centres clientele are Spanish so the ability to speak the language, a willingness to quickly learn or to employ a Spanish speaker would be an advantage. The business itself offers several different and profitable operating methods, for those not familiar with this type of business we are happy to discuss the alternatives available, for example the venue can simply be rented to customers whether it be a school, association or family, on a day rate basis with weekend tariffs substantially more than midweek charges, by choice this is how the business is being currently managed, this option will certainly appeal to those that want to enjoy a decent income without the need for hands on involvement. A more lucrative option that a new owner could easily re-introduce is to offer a catering package with a combined bar service. It must be highlighted that the very low rent of 650 euros per month on the trading unit together with the modest utility costs means higher profit retentions. If this type of business stirs your interest please contact us for more details or to arrange a personal inspection.
