Local amusement center re-opens ahead of holiday weekend

"Boomers" on Airport Rd in Boca Raton re-opened Monday with new safety protocols (WPEC)

Boca Raton amusement center, "Boomers" re-opened its doors Monday after months of being closed down.

Though bars and beaches are off limits on Independence Day, the indoor arcade and outdoor Go-Kart tracks are both open for business.

"Boomers" is among the only businesses of its kind currently open in the area - both "Chuck E Cheese" locations in Palm Beach County are still closed for gaming.

To keep patrons safe and encourage social distancing, "Boomers" closed down some arcade machines and games including laser tag.

Gamers and staff are also required to wear face coverings inside the park, and can expect to see employees cleaning and sanitizing frequently.
