Top 5 Reasons to Choose Active Entertainment

With the rise of virtual reality (VR) and technology-based innovations, it can be easy to forget the true benefits that come from physical entertainment. For example, we recently published a blog that provides a few reasons why kids require exercise when growing up and why it’s so important to instill a healthy mindset early on.

To expand on this topic a bit, let’s discuss the benefits of active entertainment and how it can prove to be a successful investment for your business as well as a pleasant surprise for your guests or customers.

Founded in 1989, RCI is the global leader in installing active entertainment and adventure attractions, including hands-on aerial products, human mazes, climbing walls, and much more. Contact us today to learn more about our innovative line of products.

1 – A Quick Return On Investment (ROI)

Many of our partners have experienced a quick return on investment after installing active entertainment products from RCI. Zoo Atlanta, for example, said their investment – which consisted of a ropes course and a Sky Tykes® course – was paid for within the first year.

When you install entertainment activities for your guests and customers, your company can experience a financial windfall for the following reasons:

  • An increased draw. By diversifying your entertainment options, you’re enticing guests to come back and experience new and exciting active entertainment options at your business.
  • Large group participation. RCI’s active entertainment attractions draw a crowd. When your business installs entertainment attractions, you’ll open the door for large group outings such as birthday parties and corporate groups.
  • Secondary sales. Even if guests choose not to participate in active entertainment, they may want to sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment unfolding in front of them. This can increase secondary sales of food, beverages and retail items available on site.
  • Word-of-mouth marketing. After your guests are blown away by your new line of entertainment attractions, they’ll spread the word to family and friends through word of mouth and posting on social media. This can increase your brand recognition and lead to new customers.

2 – Promotes Healthy Lifestyles

Broadly speaking, staying active and making a routine out of it will lead to a healthy lifestyle. Active entertainment like Sky Trail® or Clip ‘n Climb® encourages participants to move their bodies which is great for everyone, especially larger groups from schools, corporate offices, or camps.

Attractions of this nature can also serve as great team-bonding opportunities since large groups can have fun and build confidence together.

3 – Improves Cognitive Development + Other Valuable Benefits

Physical activity that results from active entertainment participation can promote a multitude of positive benefits for your guests and customers. While exercise at any stage in life is a step in the right direction, it is very important for those still growing. Health benefits include, but are not limited to, positive brain development, improved cardiorespiratory performance, and increased muscular fitness.

4 – Majority of Attractions Don’t Require Gas, Fuel, or Electricity to Operate

If you don’t have a lot of available outlets in your facility or you’re worried about adding something that requires power of any kind, we have good news for you – most forms of active entertainment can be operated without electricity or fuel. For instance, Sky Trail® aerial attractions do not need to be plugged in and the majority of Clip ‘n Climb® activities don’t either, which means participants can keep the good times going indoors or outdoors.

5 – Active Entertainment Offers a Break from Screen Time

Our phones and computers largely dominate our everyday lives, and sometimes it’s nice to step away and give your eyes a rest. The feeling of getting out of the home or office and being physically engaged can be a refreshing change of pace. In combination with the physical aspect, your guests will also enjoy the mental challenge these types of attractions present. This can improve mental health, and emotional well-being and help build relationships with others. Children and young people can especially benefit from less screen time and more physical play.
