That's really the discovery zone in middle village? Trying to make sure as I had some of my biggest memories there I don't recall two escalators being in the middle of the entrance what I remember is one escalator going up with stairs to come down, yet again it's been almost 20 years since I have been to the discovery zone in the metro mall in middle village, I 'remember playing laser tag in that room they had, I didn't shoot not even one lol
Anyways as I remember it, it was either the summer of 1999 or 2000 I begged my dad to take us as we hadn't been there in a while, I was a really young kid who loved this place, so we head to our family discovery zone at the metro mall(you driver to rooftop parking for caldor and toys r us or you drive down to back parking for discovery zone walbaums burger king and etc, the actual mall portion.
So we get there and usually there is an escalator that takes you right up to the discovery zone, however on this day there was a soda machine blocking the escalator stating that discovery zone is closed and that a new fun center entitled "jumping Jupiter" would be replacing it soon, my heart sank and I was crushed as a kid, I remember being in the car as we were driving home sad that discovery zone was closed,we soon started going to the chuck e cheeses thereafter.
I would love to relive this and get better mekory, is there any way I can get pictures from the metro mall in middle village from 1997-1999 not just exterior nut interior, remember calories there and of course discovery zone.
I looked up sec filings the discovery zone in middle villages metro mall was store number 246.
I have no idea whether jumping Jupiter ever opened up, but I do know that the discovery zone is now funtopia usa which is another family entertainment center which my older brother has taken his daughter/my niece to, it truly is wonderful how this place has served two generations in my family.
Anyways hope to find some way to see pics of the middle village metro mall discovery zone in better detail, if that pic truly is it then thank you.
