CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- After a long grueling process to open shop, Frontier Trampoline Park has closed momentarily, amid COVID-19.
"It took us by surprise,” Co-owner Ashley Hodge said. “Just like everybody else wasn't something that we thought would happen here."
Frontier Trampoline Park had its grand opening to the public on February 15, 2020. It wasn't easy, as the process took over two years. Just when their business got up and running, a global pandemic stopped it, in its tracks.
"What we're trying to do is prevent any type of spread or what can we do in the community to help make sure that it doesn't grow larger than it can," Co-owner Kat Yates said.
Since the park has been open for just a short amount of time, staff won't be able to get compensated during the closure.
"With us being so new and with a lot of our staff it being their first jobs, there's not a lot that they can do unfortunately," Yates said.
From pushing back opening dates to the virus, frontier trampoline park is determined to open its doors once again.
"We fought super hard to get here and we're not going to let this take us down so we will be back,” Yates said. “We will be opening our doors again and for our amazing community and we're just thankful to have the support."
Frontier Trampoline Park is attempting to find a way in order to assist their staff. The park looks to follow LCSD procedures with hopes of re-opening their doors, on April 7, 2020.
