Mr David Lloyd
“First there was David Lloyd, the tennis player. Then there was David Lloyd, the health and sports club tycoon. Today, the entrepreneur will set out plans for a chain of David Lloyd’s Adventure Parks.”
– Dominic Walsh, The Sunday Times
With this new business venture, Mr Lloyd is continuing to pursue his commitment to bringing recreational sports to a wider audience.
“Mr Lloyd’s adventure parks offering aims to be the ultimate family adventure destination with sessions and activities to suit everyone.”
– Martin Helme
The range of activities offered by the parks will go far beyond a simple trampolining concept (see below) and will include a host of rare-to-find indoor and outdoor activities, brought together for the first time. Some of the activities available at Mr David Lloyd’s adventure parks concept will include:
- Zip-wire adventures
- Climbing ‘cardio’ walls
- Wall running
- High wires
- Soft play areas for under-5s
- Crazy golf courses
- Extensive trampoline parks
- Air bags
- Freestyle jumping
- Obstacle courses
“Visitors will clock in with a special smartwatch, which will tot up how long they’ve spent on the activities and charge them £14 an hour.”
– The Sunday Times, Dominic Walsh
David Lloyd’s Adventure Parks will also house themed restaurants serving tasty, healthy meals to visitors and providing the company with a second line of revenue. Having opened successful DLICIOUS outlets in David Lloyd Clubs across the country, this is another aspect of the business model in which Mr Lloyd has a wealth of experience.
