Pioneers of indoor entertainment

As KCC Entertainment Design turns 20, CEO Yannick Maes tells Park World how it all began.

The Belgian company was initially founded in 2000 with the aim of designing and creating karting entertainment centres. “Our first contract was for a karting entertainment centre in Hong Kong followed by several locations in the USA,” says Yannick. Quickly the ‘karting entertainment centres’ business got extended with other entertainment offerings. We designed and built our first Middle East karting entertainment centre in Jeddah, KSA – IN10SO is in the large shopping mall Serafi Mega Mall. The owner of the mall then invited us to design and build an indoor entertainment park in a different part of the mall. We took this opportunity, strengthened our team and designed and built, in a record time, our first family entertainment centre, Moon Toon. We were rookies in the business, but the park was immensely successful and had a return on investment in approximately nine months.”

This was the starting point for a lot of great entertainment centres and parks designed and built by KCC worldwide. Today, its history is still reflected in our name: Karting Concept Company. We kept KCC as our brand name and this is now worldwide associated with distinctive entertainment projects, Yannick says proudly.
