CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Main Event, a massive entertainment center offering bowling, video games, a ropes course, laser tag, dining and more, is now open in Avon.
The 50,000-square-feet complex at 35605 Chester Road welcomed its first customers over the weekend, but today is the venue's first full day of operations. The opening was delayed about a week the company says due to unforseen bad weather.
"We are excited to expand into the Cleveland area -- our second center in Ohio-- and introduce our unique combination of food and fun to everyone in and around Avon," Main Event CEO Chris Morris said in a statement. "There's nothing like Main Event and we know that the local communities are going to love our unique combination of food and fun. We can't wait to open our new entertainment center and to provide a destination where families, their guests and colleges have more fun under one roof than anywhere, rain or shine."
Main Event will hold a ceremonial ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday at 3 p.m., at which time the company will present a $2,500 check to Prayers from Maria Children's Glioma Cancer Foundation.
The centerpiece of the complex is a 22-lane state-of-the-art bowling alley with plush seating, electronic scoring system and dark neon lighting. Besides the activities mentioned, Main Event also has billiards, shuffleboard, karaoke, mini golf, rock climbing and virtual reality games, according to the company's website.
Dining options include a sit-down restaurant, full-service sports bar and quick-service pizza counter. There's space for corporate events and birthday parties too.
Admission is free, but like at local competitors Dave & Buster's and Scene75, patrons purchase a re-loadable card to spend on activities, games and food.
Hours are from 10 a.m.-2 a.m. Monday and Friday, 10 a.m. to midnight Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, and 9 a.m.-2 a.m. on Saturday.
Avon is Main Event's 41st fun center in the country. The other Ohio location is in Cincinnati.
