Bangor Company May Close its Doors 

A place for kids to jump around may soon deflate.

The President of the Maine Jump on Hogan Road, Ryan Hatch, said attendance has been dipping over the past few months.

The play place is for children 12 and under and offers things like bounce houses and obstacle courses.

In July, the company finished a $200,000 renovation.

Hatch blames the lack of business on a sluggish economy, although he also admits there may have been some management mistakes. “To put it in perspective, before September and over the last three years, we do about 15,000 people a week. After September 1st, we’re at about 400-600 and the numbers keep dropping,” said Hatch.

The president said he doesn’t want to see his business turn into another vacant building.

If the numbers don’t improve, the Maine Jump could close for good in November.
