My dream is to open a new business that will include inflatables, bumper cars, laser tag, laser maze, and an arcade. The business would have a party room (one of only a few in the area) to accommodate our community. There is not another entertainment business similar to this within 50 miles and it is projected to bring customers TO Newton and keep them here for more local spending. This is a business that will promote and encourage spending in other Newton businesses! This business will be the only location that can provide multiple venues of entertainment options for parties and family outings. The admission fees for this business will be the same or less than other entertainment business’ located in Des Moines. Voting for this DREAM will be a vote for a business that genuinely wants to help the City of Newton and the families in this area. The grant money would be spent purchasing equipment for this business.
