You'll have one less place to take the kids as a popular spot in New Hartford's Sangertown Square Mall closes its doors for good.

The Family Fun Factory is closing its doors. The kids play space featured laser tag, bounce houses, and an arcade. They made the announcement on their Facebook page:

Today I’m posting with a heavy heart. Our last day open will be on Sun Oct. 14, 2018.
We wish the best to the business that replaces our location but due to time constraints and location we are unable to relocate at this time and need to close. I know it’s business but this business wasn’t just a business, it was our life, our home away from home, it was our family, your families, who all became our friends that made this place so special. It was a place to have fun with your kids and watch them smile, that happiness is what started our business. You saw myself and my daughter Taylor day after day for 5 years and I couldn’t have done it without her, she has been my rock along with my husband Joe, my son Christopher and all our friends and families that have help and supported us for these past 5 years I couldn’t have done it without them. Tim Pavlus who has been our “Tool-man Tim” for everything - Thank you so much. From Shirley, Katie, Taylor and to all my staff that we had over the past 5 years you are like my family forever and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you, you know who you are. We hope we can see you all again. We would love for our customers to come to see us before we close it would mean so much to us. Keep up with our Facebook page to keep up with any new developments.
Love,
Nicole, Joe, Taylor and Christopher.
& Our Staff at the Family Fun Factory
