 Snowflex® Facts
   
Please Note: These are ball park costs. Obviously, there are currency fluctuations and variable local costs. The process is iterative and costs will become more accurate as the project proceeds.

Average ticket revenue* per person per hour would typically be approximately £6, €9 or $10

* Ticket price is different from revenue because tax has to be added to the revenue to get ticket price

Typical Cost Split for a Project
           
The costs shown are for a stand alone center, however, the development might include housing, retail and other leisure activities.


How long does it last?

To which we would ask how busy is it going to be?
Our best answer relates to the amount of business and is based on some data we have collected in the UK. We would suggest that

£0.20 to £0.30
€0.35 to €0.55
$0.35 to $0.55


be collected from each ticket hour sold, to cover repairs and maintenance and placed in an escrow account.

We suggest that the whole area be fully depreciated in ten years. However, in reality, no replacement will be required for the first years of operation, then certain areas will need to be replaced such as the jump landing area. Other areas may never need replacing.

Note: when the material is worn, the quality of the experience deteriorates. If this is not attended to, the business will deteriorate i.e. people will stop visiting.
