The Perfect Dartmouth Location To Bring Back ‘Discovery Zone’
"I'm going... DZ at Discovery Zone, Discover what I can do on my own!".
Ah, the good old days as a kid in the 90's. The youth today will never know how awesome it was to hear their parents say "We're going to Discovery Zone today." It was pretty much on the same level as "Come see what Santa brought you."
1999 was the year the business closed their doors for good after filing for bankruptcy and left us in the dust without warning or a chance to say goodbye. These days, business moguls across the nation are always trying to think up ways to make money and bring business to local areas. Well, I'm here to put the word out there that if someone would want to bring back a "DZ," then I'm sure there would be no complaints.
The only problem with Discovery Zone is if you remember when it was in the Dartmouth Mall where H&M is now, the place required tall ceilings and a lot of space, so it got me thinking. Where in Dartmouth is a good piece of property that fits the specs needed for a DZ? Then it hit me... the old Circuit City.
As of right now, 'Spirit Halloween' rents out that space during the fall season. That's a business that could go anywhere and doesn't require the ceiling height that DZ would, so I say, what the heck?! Let's put a Discovery Zone in there!
Nostalgic memories flood my mind whenever I think of the days at the DZ. The blue wall that never allowed you to climb to the top, the pinched bums from the giant roller slide that always left bruises the following day and even the ball pit that was infested with germs and bacteria, but let's be honest... you played in it anyways.
So to all the kids out there who are now grown adults and survived the short-lived era of the 'Discovery Zone', why not let your own kids share that same childhood experience you once had? Let's bring back the "DZ."
