Roller City and Frontier Trampoline Park receive community support amid pandemic challenges
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Restaurants, shops and other local businesses were impacted when the pandemic first made an appearance in Cheyenne, prompting a lockdown. Interactive entertainment businesses like Roller City and Frontier Trampoline have had to face challenges to stay open during the rise in Covid cases.
“We made it work, we made it through; and it was all from the support of the community, as well. Being there with us and coming in and supporting our business,” said Ashley Hodge, Co-owner of Frontier Trampoline Park.
Frontier Trampoline Park was only open for one month before the pandemic struck Cheyenne. Like most businesses, Frontier was forced to close down and quickly adapt to the circumstances.
Hodge said although the recent spike in Covid cases is discouraging, she is hopeful business will pick up when school starts.
“Our numbers will definitely go up in the wintertime because this is an indoor facility. Hopefully we will get lots of snow this year!”
Hodge says in the meantime, they will do their best to cater to the customer by carefully scheduling party numbers, maintaining sanitation efforts, and hiring more staff. Meanwhile, it isn’t only new businesses facing challenges during this time. Local favorite, Roller City, said they are still not seeing normal participation numbers.
“We are fully open now with no restrictions; we are still not where we have been in the past. I keep on hoping and wishing it will get better, because I keep on ordering too much food and stuff; I keep thinking we are going to pick up but it is, and I know when school is back in play, it will get busier,” said Rebecca Stroh, owner of Roller City.
Roller City has been operating under Stroh for the last six years. Stroh said although the summer has been slow for business, she is grateful for the consistent business from her loyal customer base.
Neither business is requiring employees or visitors to wear masks, but ensures they will adhere to state and local mandates.
