OmniFun in Gaithersburg to Reopen in Partnership With Frederick’s Me Land

OmniFun Indoor Play Center at 831 Russell Ave Gaithersburg has announced it will be reopening.  In an email sent to customers that was shared with us by Empowering You, the company said, “Get ready for the new excitement! We will reopen! OmniFun has partnered with Me Land to bring back the indoor playground that you loved. The soft opening date will be announced soon!” Me Land is an indoor playground located in Frederick, MD. that opened in 2020.

OmniFun closed its doors back on May 23 of this year. At the time, OmniFun’s owner Mike Tian said the business could not recover after the coronavirus pandemic brought business to a standstill. “The business was a success on the first day we were open.  It served as a sweet spot for kids to socialize with others and for parents to relax and have a chat. We were very well received and recognized by the community. We had parents traveling hours to OmniFun every weekend. Our birthday parties were fully booked every weekend.”

“We struggled a lot with a balance between being a sustainable business and the safety of the community and our staff,” said Tian. “As a business, we needed large crowds to be profitable, but as a parent, I always asked myself, ‘Do I want to take my kids there with this many people?’ The state and county set the capacity limit, but we operated even below the limit all the time to avoid larger crowds.” Tian said initially he was hopeful the business would recover once the pandemic passed, but as months stretched to years, ultimately the business became unsustainable. “When we started building up this business, my kids were three and six years old. We wanted to build something that they could really enjoy and be proud of,” he said. “We had a lot of good times here, even during COVID. All the support and positive feedback from so many families.”

We will post opening information for OmniFun when it becomes available.
