Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Jungle Jeans children's play centre, established by our client in June 2007 and now offered to market to allow our client to spend more time with her young family.

The double height unit offers fun and activity for all ages from 0 to 12 years with a central frame jungle with play dens, slides and climbing sections with separate play gyms, sensory toys, ball pit and soft play shapes for the younger ones. To the rear there are games for the older children including an enclosed football and basketball jungle pitch, climbing wall, slide ball tables and coin operated rides.

For the parents, there is a large seating area and cafe with both dining tables and chairs as well as white leather sofas to relax and watch their children play safely. There is also a toy shop selling books, learning games and souvenirs.

The centre is also extremely popular for children's birthday parties and can hold up to 7 separate parties a day for groups of 10-80. There are separate secure party rooms to the front ground level and 2 party rooms on the first floor. Total number of parties held this year is 408 as of September which is 12% on the previous year and 48 up on the total number 4 years.

Our client informs us 60% of turnover comes from the activity passes, parties and kids shop while 40% comes purely from the cafe food and drinks sales.

Our client is introducing new jungle themed photo booths with accessories and props with children's characters available to take photos with the children.

Our client is also re-painting large parts of the main room with additional jungle themed designs and colours.

Prices are £2.00 for babies and under 2’s and £5 for 2-12 year olds.

There is still lots of potential to add to this successful business. There is a large outside space available to the rear of the building and plans have been drawn up to include an outside sensory area, more coin operated rides and an arcade which would add extra capacity and turnover.
