More Than a Trampoline Park: Launch Entertainment Differentiators
As a leading family entertainment concept since 2012, Launch Entertainment has come a long way from its early beginnings as a trampoline park and arcade. The brand has evolved into a full-service entertainment destination that goes above and beyond to cater to a diverse audience. Below is a closer look at what makes Launch stand out among the crowd.
An Experience for Every Family Member
We carefully design each Launch park to cater to everyone, from thrill-seekers to the young at heart. Guests have access to premium food and beverage services at our in-house Krave restaurant and Bar Hops, which keeps adults happy while kids play. Whether it’s the exhilaration of trampoline courts, the thrill of ninja courses, conquering rock walls, engaging in laser tag battles, bowling, or more, Launch is a year-round family entertainment center that ensures no family member is left out.
A Dynamic Evolution of Parks
As consumer trends have changed, Launch has quickly recognized the demand for more entertainment options. From virtual reality experiences to augmented reality games, technology has become an essential part of the entertainment park experience and a crucial contributor to Launch’s unique business model.
With 28 locations spanning 14 states and counting, Launch brings its extraordinary offerings to communities far and wide. Affordable price points and a range of activities appeal to an extensive customer base across demographics including income levels, gender, age, and geography.
Silver Oak Services Partners acquired a majority stake of Launch in 2020 to lay the foundation for its wide-scale development plans. Since then, the brand has bolstered its C-suite and support team with strategic hires, including the recent additions of Craig Erlich as Chief Executive Officer and Yvette Martinez as Chief Operating Officer.
Under Craig and Yvette’s leadership, Launch Entertainment will explore new avenues for growth, uphold safety and brand standards, and solidify Launch Entertainment’s position as an innovative leader in the family entertainment industry.
Unique and Unforgettable
What ultimately makes Launch Entertainment stand out is its ability to create unique and unforgettable memories. Launch’s diverse attractions create a win-win scenario for our guests and franchisees. Launch is an ideal place for kids and adults alike to participate in active entertainment, driving repeat business for franchise owners. And, because Launch manufactures all of its equipment and attractions, franchisees won’t break the bank on equipment costs.
With a commitment to inclusivity and adaptability, Launch Entertainment is continually raising the bar for what family entertainment can be. Ready to launch? To learn more about franchise opportunities and open territories, fill out our inquiry form, and our team will reach out.
The Rise of Tech-Based Attractions
Technology has revolutionized the entertainment industry, and nowhere is this more apparent than in entertainment parks and attractions like those at Launch Entertainment.
In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the number of tech-based attractions at entertainment parks, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. From virtual reality experiences to augmented reality games, technology has become an essential part of the entertainment park experience and a major contributor to the Launch’s unique, lucrative business model.
Immersive Experiences Drive Traffic and Renewed Growth
One of the benefits of tech-based attractions is that they can be easily updated and modified. With traditional games and attractions, it can be difficult and expensive to make changes or updates. However, with tech-based attractions, updates can be made remotely, and new experiences can be created quickly and efficiently. This allows entertainment parks to keep their offerings fresh and exciting for returning guests, while being efficient for operators to keep their parks on the cutting edge.
Plus, tech-based attractions offer an opportunity for parks to collect data on their guests. By tracking guest behavior and preferences, parks can tailor their offerings to meet the needs and desires of their guests. This data can also be used to improve the guest experience and increase guest satisfaction.
How Launch Stands out in Themed Entertainment
One of today’s most popular tech-based attractions is virtual reality, and with the advent of affordable VR headsets, entertainment centers have been able to offer immersive, interactive experiences that transport guests to new worlds.
At Launch Entertainment, we’re constantly innovating to meet consumer demand. With the addition of Launch’s Omniverse VR Arena to new and existing parks, guests are transported into a lifelike world on omnidirectional treadmills that allow them to walk, run, and rotate in 360 degrees as they explore.
It’s innovations like this that accentuate Launch Entertainment’s differentiators above and beyond any competitor comparison. Aside from our giant trampolines and VR immersions, each Launch is a year-round family entertainment center featuring ninja style obstacle courses, climbing walls, laser tag, battle pit, bowling, and more.
Launch’s diverse range of attractions creates a win-win scenario for our guests and franchisees. Our attractions are an ideal place for kids and adults alike to participate in active entertainment, driving repeat business for franchise owners. And, because Launch manufactures all of its own trampoline equipment and attractions, franchisees won’t be breaking the bank on equipment costs.
Guests are always searching for the newest, best experiences — as the world of new technologies evolves, Launch takes no shortcuts in innovating new resources and attractions to differentiate our concept from the competition.

Capitalize on Semi Absentee Franchising: Diversify Without the Time Commitment
What do a real estate investor, self-made entrepreneur and multi-unit investment group all have in common? More than enough passion and not enough time. The solution for this is semi-absentee franchise ownership.
Semi-absentee franchising opens up the opportunity to build a successful future with diversified investments. Here’s how to succeed as a semi-absentee franchise owner:
How do you succeed as a semi-absentee franchise owner?
Semi-absentee franchising typically allows the owner to enlist a manager to run the day-to-day operations onsite. Typically, semi-absentee franchise owners spend 10-15 hours a week working on the business. This lower time commitment offers unique flexibility, meaning owners can continue working a full-time job or diversify with other business investments.
This type of ownership works best for someone who can delegate and release control of the daily operations to their chosen manager. Selecting and training a manager that you can trust is key to success.
Let Your Portfolio Soar with a Launch Entertainment Franchise
At Launch Entertainment, our semi-absentee model means that franchisees can also focus on other projects or business ventures and while their Launch Park essentially runs itself. As an operator, you hire a general manager, assistant manager and sales manager to run the day-to-day procedures and ensure the business runs effectively.
Our state-of-the-art technology allows owners to access park sales and data remotely as well as our camera system. We also have a centralized call center to handle all inquiries and party bookings while our in-house marketing team plans and executes all marketing activities.
Many of our most successful Launch Entertainment operators are seasoned business executives and own several other businesses in their market. Like Arvish and Pinkal Patel, who have an extensive entrepreneurial background with several childcare franchises and other retail and convenience store businesses. Their skillset pairs well with Launch Entertainment ownership.
“We’ve owned and operated several concepts in the childcare and retail space, and when we started looking for our next business venture, Launch Entertainment stood out given its impressive model and diverse attraction mix,” said Patel. “With the support from the Launch corporate team, we are thrilled to be bringing Launch Entertainment to the communities that we’ve been serving for many years, and being able to offer a new full-service family entertainment concept to Edison.”
