The Pokagon Gaming Authority and its Four Winds® Casinos announced today that Kids Quest® & Cyber Quest® will not reopen at Four Winds New Buffalo. Kids Quest is a play destination for children ages six-weeks through 12 years old, and Cyber Quest arcade is known for its non-violent game content and signature Prize Zone. Previously, Kids Quest & Cyber Quest closed when the Pokagon Gaming Authority announced the closure of its Four Winds Casinos locations on March 17. Since the reopening of Four Winds Casinos on June 15, the age of casino guests has been restricted to those 21 and older, so Kids Quest & Cyber Quest have remained closed.
“Given the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and the extended closure of Kids Quest & Cyber Quest at Four Winds New Buffalo, our casino operations team and the Pokagon Gaming Authority felt the time was right to make a change to coincide with the other modifications we have made to the amenities and services offered at our flagship resort,” said Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Officer of Four Winds Casinos. “We would like to thank the Kids Quest organization, especially company owners, Bill and Sue Dunkley, for being such great business partners since our relationship began in 2007 with the opening of Four Winds New Buffalo.”
“Kids Quest & Cyber Quest appreciate the 13-year partnership we maintained with the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and Four Winds Casino Resort. It was a privilege to serve property guests by providing great family-friendly entertainment and a unique amenity for the resort. We are grateful for having spent those many years with our families and trusted employees, and for their loyalty,” said Troy Dunkley, Chief Executive Officer of Kids Quest & Cyber Quest.
Founded in 1992, Kids Quest currently serves families coast to coast in 12 states with 20 locations that provide the ultimate entertainment experience with the very best activities and equipment for kids, along with an enthusiastic staff skilled in child engagement and art of play. In 1996, Bill and Sue Dunkley founded Cyber Quest, which offers a family-friendly arcade with cutting edge games free of violent content.
