COVID-19 June Update


We want to be the safest place to work, have fun and eat. We have diligently worked to update our service model and trained our team members to provide a fun and safe environment to all who walk through our doors. We value your health and safety, and we are committed to this promise, but we will also need your help to achieve it.

We want to offer the same great foods, attractions and services that you remember. To help us maintain safe visits for all guests, we ask you to please assure you are well when you enter an Idle Hours Entertainment facility. If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, please stay home now and save your visit for another time! While here, please respect the space of other guests by practicing social distancing. Please be patient with one another. Good times and new procedures may take a little more time than they used to.

We can all choose to be anything in this life, but above all, please choose to be kind. Together, we can help keep each other healthy.
