A family entertainment center with trampolines and virtual reality machines got the nod from the Braintree Planning Board to set up shop at the South Shore Plaza.
Called Space Zero, the center will be located on the first floor of the mall’s Nordstrom wing and is expected to be operational by August or September. The entertainment center will feature ten trampolines and several virtual reality machines, as stated by Frank Marinelli, a lawyer representing the company. The apparatus comprises a ski simulator, a motorcycle ride, and a rock-climbing machine with wind and weather effects.
“They’re immensely realistic and entertaining, and everyone could use a little fun right now,” Marinelli stated.
The entire space is spread across 7,400 square feet and features two additional rooms for birthday parties and other functions. However, there are no arrangements to allow for food preparation on the site.
Marinelli explained to the board the increasing popularity of entertainment complexes at malls as online sales continue to cut into profits of brick and mortar.
“Businesses that sell something you can buy online as you all know, like the prior tenant of the space, are suffering,” Marinelli said. “You cannot buy online the Space Zero trampoline experience.”
