IT'S BEEN a long five months but Tom and Jenni Newberry are confident they will open the doors on The Crazy Joker next week.

They hope to be trading on Thursday, with the grand opening scheduled for Saturday, June 7.

"I think the hard part is over," Jenni said yesterday, listing off the finishing touches that will be done over the new few days.

"We've had a lot of ups and downs along the way."

The Brisbane couple bought the children's entertainment centre in January after it looked set to close.

They moved the business from its North Rockhampton site to 100 Bolsover St.

Jenni said the support from the public and prospective customers had been overwhelming, and bookings were flooding in.

"There is a lot of demand. Every day there is a new party booking," she said.

"We are getting about 20 inquiries a day, mainly on Facebook."

Despite the hurdles along the way, the Newberrys have no regrets about their move to Rockhampton.

"It's the best decision we've ever made," Jenni said. "We absolutely love it. We wouldn't change a thing."

Once operational, The Crazy Joker will open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Wednesday, with a 9pm finish on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
