Court Square Capital Partners, a middle market-focused private equity firm with $7.4 billion in assets under management, has made an investment in Five Star Parks & Attractions, a developer and operator of large-format family entertainment centers (FECs).

Headquartered in Lexington, Ky., Five Star operates 20 family entertainment centers across multiple brands including the Track Family Fun Parks, Celebration Station, Xtreme, Speed Zone, LazerPort, Malibu Jack’s and Craig’s Cruisers. These locations are a mix of indoor-only and indoor-outdoor FECs offering attractions such as go-karts, arcades, bowling, thrill rides, laser tag, mini golf and other family-oriented entertainment. With Court Square’s support, Five Star looks to drive its growth plans and offerings across its portfolio of family entertainment centers.

“This partnership strongly positions Five Star to further deliver on our growth plans and continue executing on our goal of building safe and accessible family entertainment centers throughout the US,” says John Dunlap, CEO of Five Star.
