BENEFITS

The market is primarily aimed at middle aged people with children in the age bracket of 5-12 as an alternative birthday experience (instead of using soft play areas, recreation centers and cinemas). It should also appeal to a short over night experience for young families and could develop into an adult retreat.

LESSONS

The promoter sees this project as a new niche market which can tap in to the alternative sleepover birthday experience and or develop an alternative camping experience for adults without the hassle of putting up a tent.
