Mini Monsterz Scarborough launch creates new tourism jobs

An East Coast family leisure facility aims to create 25 new jobs this summer as it expands with a new all-year site in Scarborough.

Family business Mini Monsterz, which first opened in Ruswarp, near Whitby, seven years ago, is to create the jobs with the launch of a new venture in Eastfield, Scarborough, this month after gaining commercial property advice from York-based law firm, Denison Till.

The Scarborough facility is opening after a substantial six-figure investment in play equipment, new jobs and a 20-year lease.

Designed for children aged up to 16 and their families, Mini Monsterz’ Scarborough facility will be based in a 9,000 sq ft unit and feature the latest in soft-play area technology with separate baby, toddler and junior areas.

Other activities will include a pottery-painting studio, party hosting facilities and a café.

The Mini Monsterz at Ruswarp, which has created 11 jobs in the last six years, features six slides, two of which are drop slides, one being the biggest in the country, a climbing wall, pottery painting, a café and an outdoor area with animals, a large sandpit and outdoor play areas.

Mini Monsterz founder and managing director of Demrahh Play Ltd, Brian Moore, who also owns Esk Leisure, said: “We decided to open in Scarborough as we wanted to bring the Mini Monsterz experience to people in this area and provide them with a high-quality family entertainment centre.

“The economic climate in the UK and Europe has led many people to rediscover British holiday destinations and we’re pleased to be bringing a high-quality facility using the best industry standard equipment to Scarborough and becoming part of the community.

“We’re hoping for better summer weather and aim to create 25 new jobs across our two sites with the launch of the Scarborough venture.
