The Colorado Springs-based attractions company Next Big Futures announced on Wednesday that it will be removing some of its popular outdoor and indoor attractions, including the “naked attraction” at the Colorado Springs Water Tower, the “toys and entertainment” area at the Bluebird Inn, the Colorado River Cruise, and many more.
While it is not immediately clear when the company plans to pull out its attractions, it did say it was taking the opportunity to better understand the community’s needs, and to better align its operations with those of visitors.
“We have learned a lot about our community over the past year as we have implemented changes to our business models and operations,” Next Big Concepts CEO John Hulman said in a statement.
“These changes have allowed us to better serve our guests, improve our experience, and provide the best entertainment experience possible for our guests.”
As a result of these improvements, our business has grown significantly over the last year, and we now have a strong brand with a solid customer base that we have built over the years.
“The company said it was also looking at a number of other changes in its operations, including a transition to a “mobile-first” approach, which it said will allow it to move more quickly to more customers.
The announcement comes on the heels of Next Big Entertainment, the company’s parent company, taking its business to the next level by merging with a Chinese investment firm, Shenzhen Investment Group.
Last week, Next Big announced it was partnering with the Chinese firm to create a company called Zomato that will provide “an innovative and cloud-based platform” to offer online shopping, online gaming, and online classifieds services.
The company also said it will launch a Chinese-language version of its online classified services, and it will open up its business model to foreign investors.
Next Big was founded in 2015 by two men who had previously run a company that owned a strip club in the San Fernando Valley.
In a statement to The Verge, Hulmans said that while the company was focusing on the outdoor industry, it was exploring other opportunities for expansion.”
Next Big is proud to be the first company in Colorado Springs to be able to open our doors and operate under the cloud and open it up to the community.
We have a number on our hands, but the biggest challenge for us is our community, and how it wants to use this opportunity.
“If we can work with our community to better meet their needs and meet their expectations, we are confident we will have a better outcome than we had in the past.”
Next Big Entertainment has previously said it plans to make the parks and other attractions free, with an emphasis on outdoor recreation and entertainment.
The Colorado Springs company is already offering free admission to its attractions.
