FRAMINGHAM – Launch – a year-round, family entertainment and action park co-founded by former New England Patriots standout and NFL Hall of Famer Ty Law – has opened in Framingham.
The new 21,000-square-foot park opened last week and will be hosting a grand opening event this Saturday, November 9 at 10 a.m.
Located at 2 California Avenue, where Route 9 meets the Mass Pike next to the Sheraton Hotel, the new Launch is the second of five parks that will be owned and operated by Ryan Debin, the entrepreneur behind Momentum Enterprises, a consortium of community-focused businesses throughout New England.
Earlier this year, Debin took over operations of the Launch park in Norwood that Law himself opened in 2012.
Debin’s third park is set to open in Woburn in early 2020 and he is eyeing Worcester, Weymouth and Saugus as potential areas for his remaining parks.
“Launch is the ideal place for kids and adults alike to let loose and ‘fly’ while also providing a great environment for families to spend time together,” said Debin, whose professional and personal interests aim to help children lead better lives while fostering a sense of community. “As a father of four, I’ve always looked for business opportunities that my kids would think are entertaining, and Launch exceeds that. It’s the whole package, and I couldn’t be more excited about bringing more locations to the area.”
Mixing sports and entertainment, the new park in Framingham features a ninja style obstacle course, laser tag arena, battle pit, a slackline challenge and full redemption video games scattered throughout the facility. The park also includes wall-to-wall, inter-connected trampolines with angled trampoline walls, as well as signature trampoline courts dedicated to tumbling, dodgeball and slam dunk basketball.
Krave, an in-house restaurant concept, allows guests to make their own pizza creations fresh to order, as well as ice cream sundaes, offering an interactive and delicious dining option.
“The park will be a perfect social gathering place for birthday parties, date night, family events, corporate events, fundraisers or just friendly get-togethers in a safe and enjoyable environment,” Debin said.
According to Law, this is an incredibly exciting time for Launch, as the franchise continues to expand across the country. “Our parks are not just a business, but a space where families come together to create lasting memories. We’re thrilled to have partnered with Ryan, and can’t wait for him to start creating those lasting memories in the area,” he added.
There are 60 parking spaces at Launch in Framingham.
The local expansion plans come at a time when Launch continues to rapidly expand its national footprint. Today, there are more than 30 parks open and operating in 15 states, with just as many in various stages of development across the country.
