Timezone Gold Coast went on to collect the June
2016 Tourism, Hospitality and Events award at the Gold Coast Business Awards
Already recognised as the largest indoor family entertainment centre in Australia and
the biggest Timezone™ in the world, the prestigious monthly awards are another well
deserved credit to the enterprising Gold Coast business.
Timezone™ Gold Coast collected the award after being rigorously assessed on
operational efficiency, business history, management practices, innovation,
environmental practices, citizenship ( supporting the local community ), significant
achievements and onward future business planning.
Accepting the June 2016 Award, Owner-Director of the Timezone™ Surfers Paradise
partnership, Mr Juan Uribe acknowledged all who helped the business achieve the
“I would like to pay tribute to our Timezone™ Gold Coast team whose efforts are
benchmarked by these monthly awards, and thank all of our customers who are the
reason behind these accolades, our success and the family fun centre revolution,”
The Timezone™ Surfers Paradise location houses a variety of activities under one
indoor roof including Laser Skirmish, bumper cars, miniature golf, a vintage shooting
gallery, basketball games and a bowling alley among other innovative attractions. The
family entertainment centre also host birthday parties and also provides a new venue
for corporate functions and events for businesses.
With Uribe at the helm, the Surfers Paradise family entertainment centre has expanded
its size from 3400 sqm to 5000 sqm in recent years.
In February this year a brand new 3000 sqm Timezone opened for business on the
southern Gold Coast at Coolangatta. This second store is truly testament to the
commitment that Timezone has on the Gold Coast.
“We changed the concept to focus on families by bringing in attractions and activities
rather than video games. Now 80 per cent of our visitors are families,” he said.
