Castle Fun Center up for sale after losing funds due to pandemic
One of Orange County’s biggest attractions is now up for sale.
Castle Fun Center in Chester has been shut down since March due to the statewide COVID-19 closures.
Owner Brian Leentjes says the entertainment complex has lost millions since the pandemic began.
With no word from the state regarding entertainment complexes and arcades reopening, Leentjes says he’s being forced to explore “other options.”
“Twenty-eight years of paying taxes, putting money back into the facility, employing hundreds, thousands of people over the years and they all feel the same way - why aren’t we open?” questions Leentjes.
News 12 is told several potential buyers have already reached out since listing the business and property for sale.
