Monkey Joe's in Crystal Lake Closes

Declining sales forced Monkey Joe's in Crystal Lake to close its doors. 

Monkey Joe's at 6250 Route 14 opened in 2009 and closed earlier this year, according to the Northwest Herald. 

The inflatable play center had slides, jumps and obstacle courses meant for kids 12 years old and younger. 

Declining sales had to do with the closure, according to the Monkey Joe's of Crystal Lake Facebook page. The Crystal Lake business reported it had a buyer lined up to take over but he backed out of the deal, according to the Facebook page. 

"There is a lot of competition for children's entertainment out there. We tried really hard to make it work," Monkey Joe's of Crystal Lake wrote on its Facebook page. 

Monkey Joe's has locations in Wheaton, Rockford and Peoria.
