Coney Park Introduces New Active FEC Concept
Peru-based family entertainment center (FEC) group Coney Park recently opened its newest concept, Coney Active, at the MegaPlaza shopping center in Lima. Building off the traditional FEC concept of providing families with a place they can go for interactive entertainment, the purpose of the new concept is to promote physical activity to both children and adults through games and equipment that require active movement, including slides and bouncing stations. Although this is the first Coney Active location to open, the company says it plans to open an additional three locations within Peru in 2019. To date, Coney Park comprises 130 FEC locations throughout South America, including centers in Peru, Colombia, and Chile.
