Of course the general public has no idea how a mini golf can be themed out and be made a real adventure because each little set it crazy somehow. They only imagine the golf club, astro turf and bumps on the ground.
In the old days, there were lame haunted houses that had no one really doing any acting or maybe one guy sent you on your way. It was a couple thousand square feet of nothing but painted walls. So. you go one step more and theme things out and it is open for a tour with no great activity for cheap. All year round. Maybe there are puzzles on the wall to solve, maze parts that have a list of scavenger things to retrieve. Interactive entertainment using the customers mind. Same impact enjoyment wise as a mini golf. It would only need to be 1000SF but the end goal is there is a bigger one coming in a few years, did you like that?
Even mini golf can be improved. None of the little turfs unexpectedly move the little obsticles or anything weird like that. None of them have an unexpected toilet flush or farting noise when the ball goes into a hole or an air cannon gets you or horns go off. All just added over time to make it more and more freaky and spreading the word of mouth.
Full on family entertainment center can get really expensive per square foot. I would want to not only pay the rent but kind of have the customers and freinds involved in what could be done, that's cool, who can do that? So it isn't just you and what you can buy at Transworld or IF you ever get any spare cash, it is the community came up with stuff you need to go see and there is so much it can't be described. That is the essents of advertsing only you didn't pay some fat guy with an automatic dialer to do it all, you recruited the opinion of customers.
And it may infact change. For a year it is radio controlled cars, then for a year it is mini golf, then for a year it is the largest ever in the world model cho cho system and landscaping, then for a year it is bounce houses then for a year it is garage bands doing their thing. Your wallet stays the same. Everything is going to fade out in popularity. Possibly even a haunted house if it isn't somehow inspired and creative. Just the facts ma'm.
So you spend more time worrying about YOU. Your attitude, ability to provide customer service and make people happy.
