DP Associates adds expertise to new play centre attraction at Flambards theme park

One2Eleven play centre benefits from DPA's design and operational experience

(PresseBox) (Middleton, ) DP Associates (DPA), the UK based bespoke leisure and attractions industry consultancy, has revealed details of its contribution to the new One2Eleven indoor play centre at The Flambards Experience in Cornwall, UK, which was officially opened on June 24th.

DPA was approached by the park's owners for help with plans for the children's play centre, including design and operational advice, and the company concept planned the building for the new attraction and how it would fit into the existing park. Additionally, DPA provided detailed designs for the interior and the various play activity elements.

"We used our theme park understanding, our 360 Play operator's understanding and our design experience to advise on the project," commented DPA Managing Director Duncan Phillips, which in addition to adding a totally new element to Flambards itself, was also designed as a second gate at the venue.

"The unique services we can offer, as designers and operators, enabled us to help Flambards visualise what they wanted and needed and how it would work. We helped them to create a separate brand with the new play centre too, which can be operated both as part of the main park or as a stand-alone attraction, 12 months of the year."

The new building features a range of flexible internal spaces and incorporates a host of children's play activities, F&B facilities, seating areas for parents, a party room and carefully thought out function spaces, till systems and people flows.

"DP Associates' assistance was invaluable," said Flambards Managing Director James Hale. "We simply wouldn't have got the same product we have without them. Duncan's planning and design mind and the additional assistance from his colleagues at DPA all paid big dividends and I can't speak highly enough of them. And because they are operators too it all combined to make a big difference to the whole project. Their experience really came through in the detail."
