TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
Hangar 38 opened a little over a year ago in Tallahassee's Bannerman Crossing and is the only place in town with a bowling alley, a giant arcade, a full bar and a full restaurant.
General Manager Ryan Flury says along with wearing masks and spacing out tables, they've opened every other lane for bowling and they have employees dedicated just to cleaning and wiping down all the games in the arcade.
"This is a fun place,"said Flury. "If you're cooped up inside, come on out. We are doing the safe practices, I think your kids and yourself will have a good time. We've been at 50 percent or less capacity, so you don't have to worry about big crowds. So come out and have a good time."
Flury says business now is about 40 percent of what it was before the pandemic. To help bump up business, they've been offering share nights, different specials, and even a summer camp for kids.
"For most camps, this would be the camp's field trip," Flury said. "Well, now the actual field trip is the camp, and the kids can bowl, play the arcade games, we've got counselors for them, they do arts and crafts, we watch movies. We've done it now for three weeks and the kids have had a great time."
The week-to-week camp is from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, until August 7.
It's for kids ages 7- to 11-years-old.
