ZavaZone is a multi-attraction indoor experience – the brainchild of two groups of parents who were sick of hearing their children argue about what to do in their spare time. Josh Obelor and Joe Henry, the founders, decided to channel that restlessness into something fun, active, and healthy that they could do together. Through plenty of trial and error but even more determination and eagerness to learn, Josh and Joe found a way to reverse engineer everything that has ever been wrong with family entertainment centers and turned their dream into a very successful reality.
