BOCA RATON, Fla. — Having fun and enjoying a good time with family friends has become more of a challenge since the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Boomers in Boca Raton has installed a variety of safety measures to calm their customers' fears amid the spike of cases in the Sunshine State.

The popular entertainment venue, which features mini golf, Go Karts and other games, reopened on June 29.

Since then, the business has installed a variety of safety features, including the ongoing use of disinfectants on all high-touch surfaces and limiting capacity.

"I saw people following us when we finished [playing games], and they would wipe it down. There is hand sanitizer everywhere," Rachel Marino said while visiting Boomers on Monday.

Not all the games, like basketball, Skee-Ball and laser tag, are available to visitors.

Boomers in Boca Raton opened in late June with new cleaning policies and mask mandates amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Staff at Boomers also implemented a policy that all workers and guests must wear a face covering, and all transactions are currently cashless. Also, workers are screened each day for signs of the coronavirus.

The Marinos said they are excited that Boomers was back open because it gives their family an opportunity to enjoy a normal activity again.

(My 4-year-old son) is happy to be out of the house and be a kid," father Greg Marino said.

Arlet Days, who visited Boomers on Monday, said her family liked the controlled crowd,

“It feels good to be back to normal," Days said.
