Urban Air – Gilbert To Host Flagship Western Showcase

Urban Air Adventure Park is not new to Arizona, with family-fun locations in Ahwatukee, Peoria and Queen Creek. But the one that will be coming to Gilbert will be a lot different from those three and most of its 154 indoor parks nationwide. The 10-year-old, Dallas-based family fun franchise has picked Gilbert for its flagship corporate western showcase.

“It’s going to have our premium attractions,” said Josh Wall, Urban Air’s executive vice president and chief franchise officer. “It’s what we call our version 2.5 park and that’s going to help us really put our best foot forward to the East Valley and show them what an Urban Air experience can be like.”

The Gilbert location will serve as a meeting “hub” for interested franchise buyers across the western part of the U.S.

“As we have more and more interested franchise groups that want to diversify their business investments by getting into the number one entertainment franchise in the country,” Wall said, “we want them to see the product, test the product, bring their children to the products or the grandchildren and really see what it’s like to play within an Urban Air Adventure Park. So, we will likely have monthly meetings there where we will have interested franchise groups come through and spend time with us.”
