Pure Entertainment, an inflatable-amusement center near Kellogg and Tyler, likely won't reopen today as the business' website had said last week.
The indoor playground, which had its portable-amusement license suspended by the city in May, had planned a "Grand Re-Opening Celebration" for today. Now the company's website says the reopening will happen "this fall" and urges customers to "stay tuned for more details."
Jesse Zogleman, manager of Pure Entertainment, could not be reached for comment.
The facility was the site of a 5-year-old boy's fatal fall from an inflatable ride in March. Moonwalks For Fun Inc., which owns inflatable equipment operated by the facility, is facing two civil lawsuits — one filed by the mother of the boy who died, and another by a Stafford County teacher who fell from a climbing wall and broke both legs in April 2009.
Kurt Schroeder, Wichita's superintendent of central inspection, said Moonwalks For Fun's license can be re-activated if the business provides proof that its rides have been inspected according to new city guidelines.
The city "will be contacting Moonwalks For Fun to make sure we have current, valid ride inspection information on any rides they plan to use," Schroeder said.
