Lincoln Nebraska got a whole lot more fun back in 2007 when Lost In Fun! opened its doors. In this Customer Spotlight, Scott Leiske, Lost In Fun!’s owner, looks back at what makes this locally-focused indoor play center a community favorite.
After installing a Laser Maze Challenge in 2011, Lost In Fun! upgraded their maze this year to include Beam Buster and video capture. In a facility focused on kids aged 2-10, the ability to break as many beams as possible is enticing; “Our 2- to 4-year-olds…understand the game objective of Beam Buster, because they go in and automatically just want to touch the green lights!” says owner, Scott Lieske. Kids and young-at-heart parents can now run and jump around the maze under a 30 second time crunch, in addition to the Laser Maze ninja play.
Lost In Fun! is no stranger to keeping their venue fresh by upgrades like Beam Buster – this month they are bringing in more new equipment: “We change things up all the time and get a variety in here!” says Lieske. The Laser Maze Challenge is an optimal booster attraction for this facility already brimming with attractions. Lost In Fun! also boasts a foam pit, arcade games, inflatables, play-sets, and something called a “jumping pillow” that is exactly what it sounds like…an inflated trampoline canvas that resembles an over-sized pillow. “This is Lincoln, Nebraska, so especially in winter, you don’t really want to plan a whole lot to do outside. So birthday parties really ramp up in winter, because we bring the fun of an outdoor play-land indoors.”.
Celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year, Lost In Fun! has no plans of slowing down in this tight-knit community. “It’s really been fun watching the kids grow up,” reminisces Lieske. “It’s so cool to see them when they start coming in at age 2, and now they’re 12! Even some of our staff had their 5th birthdays here, and now they work for us.”
The community feel and focus on fresh fun shines through the business. And as Lieske points out, “at the end of the day, it’s all about the kids. That’s why we’re here.”
