A handful of kids and parents milled about to the electronic gurgle of games inside Go Go Gorillas Fun Center around lunchtime Thursday, but the business has recently had to take steps to stave off creditors planning to repossess much of its entertainment and restaurant equipment.
On Oct. 3, Boyle Circuit Judge Darren Peckler signed off on a writ of possession ordering the sheriff’s office to seize dozens of tables and chairs and other restaurant items, along with the mini bowling alleys that are part of the center’s entertainment package. The items are owned by California company Leasing Innovations, and the center had failed to make lease payments on the equipment for several months, according to court documents.
Three days later, however, Peckler issued an agreed order stating that Grace Global Media, which owns the center, and Leasing Innovations had reached a tentative settlement over the equipment, valued at $160,000. That order halted the repossession, but the matter remains open on the docket until details of the settlement are worked out.
