Plymouth Indoor Adventure Park on COVID-19 Restrictions: ‘We Are at Risk of Closing’
The COVID-19 pandemic is hitting local businesses hard. The owners of Urban Air Adventure Park say the future of their business is up in the air.
Typically, the indoor park is packed with people, young and old, climbing and jumping to new heights. However, Tuesday, the park was dark, temporarily closed due to the Governor’s latest COVID-19 regulations, which closed restaurants, gyms and entertainment venues.
“Every time we have to close our doors, we lose our revenue, and we lose our revenue to pay rent, all the bills we have,” explained co-owner Lindsey Herold.
Herold says the indoor park has been operating at 25 percent capacity since June. She now wonders if the latest closing restrictions will be the one to shut them down for good.
“We are at risk of closing if this continues much longer. We’re keeping our head above water right now, but it’s not a guarantee,” Herold said.
Herold says it’s frustrating to see other businesses open to the public.
“You have these big boxed stores that are open and letting people come in and out with no restrictions on anything, and here we have to close our doors,” she said.
During the shutdown, the family-owned business is relying on memberships and gift cards to sustain them.
