Main Event Entertainment, currently with 19 centers in five states, has announced its newest location in North Fort Worth, Texas.
The location, adjacent to I-35W between North Tarrant Parkway and Heritage Trace Parkway, will be the site of the Plano-based company’s sixth center in the Dallas Metroplex. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring, with plans to open later this year.
“Our expansion in our home market of Dallas-Fort Worth is an important part of our growth plans, which include eight new center openings by June of 2016,” said Main Event CEO Charlie Keegan. “As the pioneer of bowling-anchored entertainment, we are excited to bring our latest prototype to DFW.”
Main Event’s marketing tagline is, “Eat. Bowl. Play.” Its centers range from 48,000 to 75,000 square feet, and attractions include state-of-the-art lanes, multi-level laser tag arenas, and a gravity ropes course suspended over a games gallery with more than 100 interactive and virtual games.
Dining options include a chef-inspired menu, specialty pizzas and a full-service bar.
With private rooms, complete with full-service catering and the latest A/V technology, Main Event also is an option for special events such as birthday parties, social gatherings and corporate meetings.
Main Event, which opened six centers in new and existing markets in 2014, has plans to open centers in Fort Worth, Kansas City, Phoenix, Chicago, Orlando, Tulsa, Memphis and Albuquerque by June 2016, the company said in a press release.
