Medford (New York) – An adult pajama party held over the weekend at a Long Island children's entertainment center has parents furious after photos of naked people on a dance floor inside the facility were posted online. 

A flyer for the Saturday night party, which ran until 3 a.m. at Medford's Krazy Kidz, was posted on Meetup.com and was billed as a "Jungle Gym & Pajama Party All-Night Dance Party: For Grownups Who Won't Grow Up." It was said to include pillow fights, crazy maze races, a Twister contest and body painters. 

"The purpose of the party is to play like a kid!," the flyer reads. "...to be happy and carefree. This is just good clean wholesome fun.

"There will be no orgy, smut, strippers, or sexually lewd content....however...there will be tasteful nudity," the flyer reads. 

"Absolutely no cameras allowed," the flyer says, but some party-goers apparently didn't not obey that rule as photos from the party at the Horseblock Road facility leaked online. One of them shows two scantily clad women inside a jungle gym. Another shows a man and woman apparently fully nude on a dance floor. 

Local parents said the photos show that the party was certainly not "good clean wholesome fun." 

"I think it is disgusting for a children's play area to be used for anything but a children's area," said Allison B., of Farmingville. "I've seen the clearly nude photos and read the invite including warm jello wrestling. My kids will definitely not be going here again." 

Krazy Kidz responded to the controversy on its Facebook page Tuesday morning.

"In order to help meet regular expenses the facility was rented to a private group for a benefit costume party," a post reads. "The photo in question actually shows a person in the background wearing a body stocking Eve costume. This event was no different that an ordinary Halloween party that you would hold at your home. As always, that facility has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized with a fogging spray and we continue to pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facility."

The company said no staff from Krazy Kidz was involved in the event and its "private party facility rental policy is currently under review to prevent any such misunderstandings from occurring in the future."

Krazy Kidz said it would be closed on Tuesday for additional cleaning and sanitizing "to further restore the public's trust."

"The staff at Krazy Kidz continues to apologize for the obvious lack of judgment that has resulted in everyone's concerns and comments," another Facebook post reads. 

A Holbrook woman told Patch she didn't have a problem with the type of adult party that was held, but that the venue was not appropriate. 

"I would never bring my children to a place that would use a children's facility for adult entertainment," said Melissa, who didn't want her last name published. "The icing on the cake for us parents, is Krazy Kidz's response. They claim to not know anything about the nudity or type of party being held. Where is their common sense?"

Holbrook resident Sal Farruggello told News 12 that when he showed up at Krazy Kidz for his daughter's sixth birthday party on Sunday morning, the floors and games were soaking wet. 

"They told us the whole place was wet because they were cleaning,” Farruggello said of the explanation from employees, according to News 12. “Because they had a fire alarm go off the night before."

Advance tickets for the party, according to the online flyer, were $35 and included a juice bar and pizza. The group had permission to allow 300 guests to attend, the flyer says.

A woman who attended the party estimated that there were a couple hundred people who came and went through the night. The woman, who identified herself as Teresa from Islip, said the controversy over the party was "completely blown out of proportion.

"I'm just blown away by the things that I am reading," she added. "People are acting like it was an orgy and it was not. It was so far from it."

Teresa said there were a half dozen or so nudists at the party, but they did not use any of the children's equipment while there. She also said there was no sex or drug use at the party. 

"There were a couple people making out," she said. "It was G-rated." 

Many of the people at the event, which featured aerial performers and hula hoop girls, are part of an online group that routinely gets together to engage in active events, such as hiking or caving, said Teresa, who is employed as an office manager. Teresa said the woman who organized the event at Krazy Kidz received death threats Tuesday from people upset about the party. 

Another woman who attended the party said she didn't see anything wrong with it being held at a place that caters to children. 

"It was just a facility to have fun in," said Helena, of Bay Shore. "It's a fun zone. It could have happened at a Dave and Buster's. It was good natured fun no matter where it was.

"There were no kids there," she added. "It was 21 and over and it was respectable." 

Helena, a mother, said she plans to take her child and her friends to Krazy Kidz in the future. Both women said they were upset by the backlash toward the company. 

"This man's business is being ruined for nothing," Helena said.

HOLY MOLEY! Lynch mob? Public hanging? A PLACE THAT YOU TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO MADE A WRONG CHOICE AND IS PAYING FOR IT. THEY WILL NOT (hopefully) MAKE THAT CHOICE AGAIN after all the disappointment from their patrons! Make YOUR OWN choices, but you do not have the right to BULLY, NOBODY has that right! If the parents of the scheduled parties wished to speak to the venue regarding refunds, because of how THEY felt, then I'm sure there would have been no problems with that.... BUT all of these mean attention seekers are more than likely the reason that they cannot get their issues dealt with. YOUR OPINION is JUST THAT, YOUR OPINION. Do whatever makes you happy, but there is no need to pursue your crucifixion based on your personal standards. Who cares if you WILL or WILL NOT patronize a facility. That is your choice. Alone. REGARDLESS of what may or may not have taken place at a certain event, if you don't wish to return, fine, don't. If you do wish to return, fine, do! Why so much anger? It's one tiny thing in your life. That's it. Breath and move on to something more important. Customer comments after a poor experience are fine, but state your discontent, ask if there is anything they will do to correct the situation to keep their customers happy, and move on. Make your choice to patronize or not. It's your choice. The continued anger against each other over your disappointment and concern is unnecessary. I'm pretty sure this particular owner is extremely regretful (although, I do not know personally) and understands the predicament that their bad choice put them in, possibly losing their business. Is it necessary for anyone here to make that worse? I would personally never wish someone's loss of livelihood, whether I agreed with their practices or not. I would wish for them to learn from the negative and possibly make it more positive.

Lori King, another victim of Patch's unwillingness to have paragraph returns in their comment section... oh the humanity...
Marie February 06, 2014 at 02:41 PM
Charlie, it would be easier if we could edit with simple html and do patch a huge favor...I wish I could wiggle my nose and make confusedbrookhaven just go away...
Lori Billadello King February 06, 2014 at 02:54 PM
Unfortunately for humanity, giving someone a chance to redeem themselves, correct a negative, rectify a situation, blah blah blah, is out of the question these days. These individuals take it upon themselves to play judge, jury and executioner until they burn someplace to the ground. Do they feel better about themselves? Probably.
Charlie Cheswick February 06, 2014 at 03:08 PM
Well, fortunately for most, not many people read Patch. Patch is kind of like having a small PTA meeting in the corner of the end zone in an empty 80,000 seat stadium; it has the capacity to host a big crowd, it just isn't...

ANYONE know if there is a police inquiry going on, about this party ?
S. Joy February 06, 2014 at 04:08 PM
Why would the police be involved? Aren't there actual children in need of their protection? You know like from people who intend to do them harm. Geez.
Earl February 06, 2014 at 04:11 PM
This story was all over every newscast, so apparently it was a much bigger story than a Patch blog.

It is still illegal and a crime to use illegal drugs, in New York State. As well, IF a registerd business, does not have a proper license, to serve liquor, in New York State, they can't excepting under certain circumstances, and legal authorizations. At the least, I am sure that KK's insurance company, would NOT be happy, that certain activities were being conducted on it's premises, that KK is NOT specifically licensed to conduct, on it's premises. IF YOU DON'T GET WHAT MY POINT IS...WE ALL LIVE BY RULES, IN OUR SOCIETY...EVERYONE LIVES BY THESE RULES, THIS IS WHAT SEPARATES HUMANS FROM ANIMALS...at least certain two legged 'animals'....of which KK DOESN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND. I'm sure that KK is holding it's IGNORANT breath, as the legal authorities of our locality, line up TO SCREW THEM ! These Rules, are made to protect EVERYONE, even the SLUGS, who don't think they have to live by Rules.

...and your point is?

We live in a society where there are pedophiles, drug dealers and predators in every neighborhood. Parents don't let their children wander the neighborhoods like we did when we were kids. They rely on scheduled play-dates, organized sports teams, after school clubs and play-places like Krazy Kids to keep their children occupied and safe. Finding out that these types of events are being held after hours in a children's play place is disturbing to parents who already feel like they're fighting a losing battle trying to keep their kids safe and protected.

Hey Charlie, Krazy Kidz is getting WORLDWIDE, FREE publicity, which I am sure they are very happy about !
Charlie Cheswick February 07, 2014 at 10:28 AM
Maybe that's what they were going for right from the beginning! Ever think about that? Let's have an after-hours, raunchy, Sodom and Gomorrah-style orgy of sin & lust amongst our innocent children's indoor playground equipment and, if we're lucky, the story will get out, go viral and maybe we can pick up some new customers from the greater-Moscow area. Seems legit.
Marie February 07, 2014 at 10:43 AM
Most often it's the kids that are kept in a bubble all their lives that end up breaking loose and bending towards social extremes to try and fit in with the "in" crowd. I've seen it quite often.
Archie Bunker February 07, 2014 at 10:59 AM
My precious kids!
brookhavenconfucius February 07, 2014 at 11:07 AM
Marie, especially the BORED, LI kids, who have NOTHING to do with their miserable lives...POOR BABIES !

Nudism is NOT about seeing or being seen. It's about de-stressing, relaxing, and returning to innocence. It's about accepting yourself and others for who you are, how you act, and what you say, rather than what you look like, wear, or own. If you're looking to ease your way into the nudist lifestyle, nudist resorts , nudist beaches and nudist dating site (Google DatingwithNudist com) are available that offer a slightly less adventurous experience.

What a bunch of crybaby prudes there are here, but at least you are worth a good laugh.
JIM COLETTO February 08, 2014 at 04:02 AM
Maybe this will be a lead into some business entreprenuer opening up a krazy adultz center? think about it....lol!....they can use a logo of Caligula or Larry Flint....hahahahah!!
Deborah Genovese February 08, 2014 at 11:16 AM
Sometime in your life you will not make the best decision and hopefully learn from it. I honestly feel that Krazy Kids understands how people feel about the situation and is willing to correct this. It's not fair to judge and take away their business without giving someone a chance to redeem themselves.. I think you would want the same.
Deborah Genovese February 08, 2014 at 11:20 AM
I have addresses my concerns directly with the owner and told him my party of 12 IS Still Booked!! Let's try to be more supportive and give someone a chance to fix their mistake.
Igor February 09, 2014 at 03:18 PM
Out of all the idiots here that had so much to say about this. Just how many of you were actually there? I'm going to say Zero. Just want to jump on the pold band wagon and bitch about something. Morons.
Robert Battersby February 09, 2014 at 06:25 PM
@BrookhavenConfucious - Everything I've read about this stated they were not using drugs at the party, so I don't even know where you're getting that from. As for the alcohol restriction. Sure... it is illegal to sell alcohol without a licence. However, this was a private party, and it was BYOB. They were NOT selling any alcohol, everybody brought their own alcohol, and the attendees were all over 21. None of this is illegal whatsoever. So, now, the only argument you have left is that the choice of venue was inappropriate... however, that's just your opinion. This isn't a legal matter whatsoever. Well, unless, of course, you count the public defamation of the business owner and the threats of violence against him as a crime.
Earl February 10, 2014 at 04:01 PM
I hope anyone that keeps their planned parties there lets the parent of the kids that were invited know of this.
Igor February 10, 2014 at 06:42 PM
Earl did you bother to read the article that was written by the person that attended the party? Or did you just read the headlines and passed judgement on the owners?
Robert Palmer February 11, 2014 at 01:56 AM
Let freedom reign. It was a private group holding a private party. Give them liberty. And besides, there was no misbehaving. Are some of you pissed just because you weren't invited?
Paeslie Taylor February 12, 2014 at 02:28 PM
If there were no explicit activities then there shouldn't be an issue with the event. Seriously people- get a grip. Your precious little booger eaters will be ok
