Augusta, Georgia, Announces Construction of New Bowling Facility
17 Feb, 2017
Georgia-based Stars and Strikes recently announced plans to open a new bowling venue and family entertainment center in Augusta, GA in November 2017, marking their eleventh location and the tenth in the state of Georgia.
The 55,000 square foot facility located at 4238 Wrightsboro Road – convenient to Interstates 20 and 520 – will house 24 bowling lanes, 8 of which are VIP lanes in the signature Main St Lounge. The new Augusta location will offer fun and unique bowling leagues for all ages and skill levels. In addition to bowling, Stars and Strikes will feature other attractions, including a 7,000 sq. foot arcade and prize store, a multi-story laser tag arena, bumper cars, the 7/10 Grille restaurant and a large full-service bar surrounded by big screen TVs for sports viewing.
The new Augusta facility also includes multiple private party rooms for events, highlighted by an upscale corporate event room that will seat 200 with a full private bar. The Main St Lounge features VIP bowling lanes in an upscale setting that is ideal for corporate and group events of all sizes. Stars and Strikes excels at providing deluxe, chef-crafted cuisine in a fun-filled atmosphere. Corporate and private event guests initially visit for the fun, only to be pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the private event buffets and food packages.
“We have seen and heard demand for our unique brand of entertainment from the families and residents of Augusta and the surrounding area over the past few years,” said Chris Albano, managing partner and co-founder of Stars and Strikes. “With these families in mind, we are excited to bring a brand of family-focused entertainment to the Augusta area that guests of any age can enjoy.”
The new Stars and Strikes will offer affordable birthday party packages that are custom designed to accommodate budgets of any size. Stars and Strikes takes great pride in delivering a fantastically fun birthday party experience for kids of all ages that is easy and affordable for parents. Stars and Strikes’ birthday parties are consistently voted the #1 Birthday Parties by multiple local news outlets. The private birthday party rooms are ideal for a child’s special day.
The Company’s newest attraction, Escape-ology, will be prominently featured in the new facility. Escape-ology is an entertaining, interactive amusement concept where you use your powers of deduction to solve a mystery. While it looks and feels like an ordinary room, it’s actually a real life mystery adventure game designed for small groups of friends, families and co-workers. Your team is on the clock and must solve the puzzles and figure out the clues to earn your freedom and “Escape from the Room”.
The Augusta location will feature the company’s well-regarded classic American grill dining concept, the 7/10 Grille. The restaurant will offer fresh, chef-crafted cuisine including a variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, specialty pizzas and other house-made items. Stars and Strikes has made it a priority to offer food and beverage options that are healthy, delicious and a welcome enhancement to the entire entertainment experience.
With nine existing locations throughout Georgia, including Columbus (opened 2016), Buford (opened 2015), Loganville (opened 2015), Woodstock (opened 2015), Sandy Springs (opened 2013), Stone Mountain (opened 2011), Dallas (opened 2008), Lawrenceville (opened 2007) and Cumming (opened 2005), and a new Stars and Strikes coming soon to Huntsville, Alabama (opening September 2017), the Stars and Strikes location in Augusta will appeal to guests of all ages and interests. The 24 state-of-the-art bowling lanes will attract serious bowlers looking to bowl in leagues, as well as families looking for a safe, clean, smoke-free entertainment center that is kid-friendly.
Stars and Strikes is excited to be an active member of the Augusta community. The company will invest over $6 million in the new facility, creating over 100 jobs, most of which will be filled locally. For more information or to apply for employment, visit www.StarsAndStrikes.com.
