Silvio Liedtke, CEO, Landmark Leisure told Telangana Today, “Mall operators should be ready to create facilities that will allow such amusement facilities right from the design stage of the malls. We have signed a 10-year lease agreement with the mall and the operator was willing to lease out a large area for the amusement facility. In the Middle East we have introduced loyalty programmes and we want to bring them to India. We also plan to introduce a Fun Block amusement centre in Hyderabad soon.”
Landmark Leisure India Business Head Tarun Rangwani said, “Landmark Leisure has invested Rs 50 crore into the Hyderabad Tridom facility, which will employ 50 people initially, with plans to expand further. We currently have 26 Fun City centres (catering to kids in the age group of 2-12) across India, including one in Inorbit Mall in Hyderabad. We will be almost doubling this number in the next 2 to 3 years. In GCC countries, we have 43 centres currently. The investment in each Fun City centre is approximately Rs 10 to 15 crores for facilities spread around 10,000-15,000 sq ft, while Tridom is going to need more investment than that, as it has more attractions.”
