Need 2 Speed will be closing its doors at the end of October after almost five years of business in downtown Redding.

The business says it is closing due to "tough economic times" and added that it tried to add the mini golf course and bounce houses in an effort to keep the business alive. 

The business adds that it will continue to honor any gift cards or account credit until it closes in October. 

Jeter’s Playground will be opening its doors to replace Need 2 Speed at the beginning of November, promising a full family entertainment facility for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
