Rapid Growth at Main Event Entertainment, Expansion Plans Revealed


Main Event Entertainment of Dallas, Texas plans to will bring its unique “Eat. Bowl. Play” family entertainment centres (FEC) to eight new sites across the United States.

The centers offer visitors multi-level laser-tag, bowling, gravity ropes and much more, including 100 virtual and interactive video games and top quality F & B. The FECs are between 45, 000 to 75, 000 square feet.

Between this November and next summer, the rapidly growing company will open new sites in Pointe Orlando, Florida,  Suwanee, Georgia; Indianapolis; Humble, Texas; Jacksonville, Florida.; Gilbert, Arizona; Kansas City, Kansas; and Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Pointe Orlando, Florida, site will open mid-November – the 30th Main Event in the United States – and will feature the brand’s latest design incarnation,  including “VPlay Reality”, the first multi-player VR (virtual reality) experience in the US. The other centers will also feature elements of the Pointe Orlando prototype.

With this rapid expansion of the brand the company expects to have 37 centers open across the country by next summer.

Charlie Keegan, president/CEO of Main Event Entertainment said, “Main Event is growing at a rapid pace and we are on track to open a center a month over the next eight months. That represents a record number of center openings and enables us to introduce our brand to four new markets. This is an extremely exciting time to be at Main Event, as we not only expand within our core markets, but branch out to new areas where guests have yet to experience our brand.”
