The owner of the Party Fantasy children's play area in Mundelein got permission this week to open another one in Wheeling.
Adi Mor, who also owns Garden Fresh Market stores, said the Wheeling Party Fantasy will resemble the Mundelein one, with gokarts, a climbing wall, dance floor, inflatable bounce houses, toddler area and party rooms. The plan was approved Monday by the Wheeling Village Board.
The Wheeling Party Fantasy will be at 7150 Capitol Drive, north of Palatine Road and west of Wolf Road. Mor told the Wheeling Plan Commission he has owned the building for 11 years, using it as a warehouse and offices over the years. He also tried to sell the building, which was unsuccessful.
He opened Party Fantasy in Mundelein two years ago, and says it has been very successful.
This is a family recreation place where parents bring their kids and spend three or four hours, he told the commission, with most customers coming for parties. Mor said the Mundelein center hosts about 30 parties a week, attended by an average of 20 to 25 youngsters.
