Family/indoor entertainment center (FEC) is a miniature indoor amusement park, which is developed especially for families with children to teenagers-, and is often entirely indoors or associated with a larger operation such as a theme park. It offers a wide variety of entertainment activities for all age groups. FECs majorly serve larger metropolitan areas, and are small compared to full-scale amusement parks, with fewer attractions, a lower per-person per-hour cost to consumers than a traditional amusement park. In addition, FECs are more preferred as an entertainment and leisure option by families over the outdoor entertainment centers, as the environmental factors and climate changes do not affect any merriment and experience of customers.

Surge in per capita disposable income, availability of diversified gaming & entertainment options, and favorable youth demographics in the MENA region are the key factors that drive the growth of the MENA family indoor entertainment centers market. However, shift in preference of tech-savvy consumers toward home gaming & mobile devices, high initial cost of FECs, and increase in ticket prices majorly restrict the market growth. On the contrary, continuous launch of new FECs supporting family activities and integration of food & beverage and games such as participatory play are anticipated to create significant opportunities for growth of the family/indoor entertainment centers market. Moreover, substantial rise in investments by malls to attract consumers and integration of augmented reality (AR) & virtual reality (VR) gaming zones in FECs are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market.
